I have heard about a sugar sensitive insulin being developed that works harder when glucose levels go up. Do you know if this will be available in the near future?

No such critter. Maybe somebody misinterpreted something somewhere, about lyspro insulin? This product is a synthetic insulin similar to Regular insulin, that works faster and is gone faster than standard Regular insulin (but it doesn't work differently based on blood sugar levels!).

Lyspro is being reviewed by the FDA presently, and might be available in 1996 (we hope). It's made by Eli Lilly, and will be sold with the brand name Humalog (weird name; it's an human insulin analog).
