Twenty-four members of a nonprofit organization called Razor Crusaders took a tour of Utah during the last three days — starting in St. George and finishing amid a carnival-like celebration at Dav...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The FDA cleared MannKind Corp.’s drug Afrezza, a fast-acting form of insulin, for adults with the most common form of diabetes that affects more than 25 million Americans. The approval decision comes more than three years after the agency first asked MannKind to run additional clinical studies on the drug.

A wearable, experimental device passed a real-world test, constantly monitoring blood sugar and automatically giving insulin or a sugar-boosting drug as needed, doctors said Sunday. 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...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-580720732014-06-15T21:04:02.246-06:00" id="#license-2014-06-15T21:04:02.246-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
