We have recently conducted a clinical research trial of an Advanced Hybrid Closed Loop System (AHCL). Qualified patients are able to receive the groundbreaking change in technology that began with the FDA approval of the first artificial pancreas, Medtronic 670G, and now 770G at our center. Our leading team of specialists were involved in the research trials that brought this technology to the market, making this therapy a reality. The specialists at Arkansas Diabetes and Endocrinology Center were the first in the state to use the artificial pancreas system.

We also are managing patients on the new Tandem T-Slim and Dexcom Closed-Loop Technology with no finger sticks, and are constantly providing patients with more options as technology continues to evolve.
