Melbourne: Insulin is a hormone that regulates blood sugar, not enough hormone for diabetic patients that requires insulin vaccinations, but now the good news is that specialists are much less expensive and effective. Has successfully managed to produce insulin, the main ingredient of which is egg yolk.

But one of the drawbacks of current insulin is that if it is not kept in a specific environment, the components contained within it can form fibers. Within a day or two the insulin mixture forms a form of fine metal called "fibrils." This process can also be life-threatening for patients, especially for patients who enter the insulin body through a pump.

Dr. Akhtar Hussain and colleagues at the Florida Institute of Neuro Sciences and Mental Health in Melbourne have changed some egg yolk components in such a way that it reduces the risk of becoming insulin fibers. Experts have called this method artificial insemination.

The problem of fibrils is exacerbated by insulin pumps, and going into the patient's body can be very dangerous. For this reason, patients have to change or clean the insulin pump every 24 to 72 hours, but the new insulin will also eliminate the need for it and prevent the drug from being lost.

Eggs are found in egg yolks, which have their molecules in the insulin molecule. The product that came from it has been called 'glyco-insulin'.

The vaccine made in this way is expected to be effective for two to six days and will save $ 1 billion annually as more than 300,000 people use insulin pumps in the United States alone.

According to Dr Akhtar and his team, his early experiences have been very encouraging.
