The device improved blood-sugar control more than standard monitors and insulin pumps did when tested for five days on 20 adults and 32 teens. Unlike other artificial pancreases in development that just correct high blood sugar, this one also can fix too-low sugar, mimicking what a natural pancreas does.

They have one. It's called a muzzle.
Gold Star post of the day.
May I suggest you mean a gag? A muzzle would just keep her from biting, not yapping.
The pancreas does a lot more than just control sugar.
