    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 have never heard of any biologically active molecule being denatured by ultrasound. Chemical bonds simply do not respond to such low frequencies. However, I have no actual experience in this area. This question is better suited for the medical techs. Can you find a clinical forum?
