Professor David Brayden and a team in the PRU Veterinary Hospital carry out laboratory tests to make insulin available in a pole.

Professor Brayden's efforts are detailed in a RTE document that opens a new eye of the Bittersweet name.

Professor Brayden said: "The increase in diabetes is probably ten years over the last decade, most of which will be Type 2 diabetes and diabetes really find a way from living, eating the wrong foods at the wrong time and not taking enough exercise. "

He warned of the expected increase in chronic disease among young people with rising obesity rates.

He said: "They predict that up to a third or a half of our children will become obese when they reach their 20s. The link between obesity and Type 2 diabetes is very strong so we know that it is put more pressure on the system.

"When I was a child, we were out running the whole summer but children are now in front of computers and on their phones through time."

Professor Brayden also believes that patients are much more open to taking tablets or injecting themselves.

He added: "Because insulin breathing has to be achieved, we know that patients prefer other routes other than injection."


The documentary – part of a joint program of the NUI Galway CARE for Research in Medical Devices and the Galway Film Center program – will be broadcast on Wednesday on World Diabetes Day.

Typical treatment for Type 1 diabetes includes daily injections while initial Type 2 treatment focuses on the delays of disease through exercise and diet with patients moving on to needles.
