The article offers information related to researches in diabetes treatment. The study by Lifeng Fan revealed that few diabetic patients were involved in self-management such as healthy eating, blood glucose monitoring, and exercise. The study by Mary-Anne Doyle and colleagues showed a standardize glycemic treatment through the use of pre-printed insulin orders. Meanwhile, Robert Couch and colleagues' study concludes that metabolic control is difficult to attain using insulin pump.
