    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 am a bio major in college so maybe I have enough background to answer your question.

    I believe it would revert back to its original process unless the ultra sound somehow broke the molecule apart so that it were no longer insulin. But I don't think that ultrasounds are at a high enough frequency for that to happen.

    So the question is: At what sound frequency do molecules of insulin break apart?
