Professor David Brayden and UCD's team at UCD's Veterinary Hospital are conducting laboratory tests to use insulin as a pill.
Professor Brayden's efforts are detailed in the RTE documentary, a new, eye-catching bittersweet.
Professor Brayden said, "The increase in diabetes will probably be 10-fold over the past decade, the majority of which will be type 2 diabetes, and diabetes is actually the wrong food at the wrong time, It comes from. "
He warned of an expected increase in chronic diseases among young people with increasing rates of obesity.
"We predict that one-third or one-half of our children will become obese when they are in their 20s." The association between obesity and type 2 diabetes is so strong that it puts more pressure on the system.
"When we were kids, we played all summer, but now we are always in front of the PC and on the phone in front of the kids."
Professor Brayden thinks it is much more open to taking tablets than injecting patients.
"Because the inhaled insulin is achieved, the patient prefers other routes than injections," he added.
Documentary – Some of the joint programs of NUI Galway's Medical Device Research Center and the Galway Film Center program will be broadcast on Wednesday World Diabetes Day.
Typical treatments for type 1 diabetes include daily injections, while type 2 treatment focuses on delaying disease through exercise overeating with patients who initially move to the needle.
