Introduction
Diabetic children who live surrounded by modern technologies such as Facebook, Google, and GPS want their treatment to stand up to the times, especially if it accompanies them for their whole life.

Aim of the study
In this review we aim to analyse which technologies help diabetics in their everyday struggle to keep up with diabetes as well as whether those inventions catch up to the reality of 21st century.

Material and methods
We decided to discuss the most outstanding inventions in the field of diabetology. We chose insulin pumps, constant glucose monitoring (CGM) systems, mobile apps, and, last but not least, social media and the Internet as the most promising and fastest developing areas. Thanks to all of these technologies and devices we are now able to monitor patients all time. We have to take into account that the limitations of technology, the possibility of technical malfunction, and human error might prove to be fatal.

Conclusions
To sum up, technology simplifies treatment and aids patients in daily diabetic control.
