From Allen, Michigan, USA:

Has there been any research done on using a patch for administering insulin in place of an injection?


No one has yet been able to figure out how to modulate the doses of insulin needed to provide meal time, snack time and then background (basal) insulin effects via a patch. There is lots of research, however, on many different ways of delivering insulin, all on-going.
