    Ultrasound-mediated TDD(transdermal drug delivery) is what i'm gonna ask you guys about: they said that applying ultrasound and insulin (quite like a patch i guess) at the same time might lower your glucose level real quick but... Does insulin molecule remain biologically active after this ultrasound exposure? any comments?

    I don't know this for a fact, but I'm quite sure that insulin's function wouldn't be damaged by ultrasound. I believe sound waves, as opposed to EM waves, don't really possess (much) energy, so there'd be no broken bonds in the insulin, and thus no damage...
