An international panel of more than 40 healthcare professionals and legal experts has published the first ‘practical guidance’ to support people with type 1 diabetes using open-source automated insulin delivery systems to manage their condition.

The paper, published online in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology, has been endorsed by nine professional diabetes organisations, including the International Diabetes Federation, but not by the peak Australian diabetes bodies.
