‘Holy grail’ of insulin pill could end need for diabetics’ daily injections

An insulin pill which could prove to be the “holy grail” of diabetes treatment has been developed by scientists.

Researchers have created a pill which could dramatically transform the way diabetics keep their blood sugar levels in check.

It is hoped the oral delivery of insulin could eliminate the need for painful injections, which up to 40 million people living with type 1 diabetes require once or twice a day.

The researchers plan to conduct more animal testing, as well as long-term toxicological and bioavailability studies.
