Diabetes is a kind of disease which leads to improper balance of sugar levels in blood over a longer period of time. This happens because body pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin or cells of the body are not responding properly to the insulin. Insulin is a hormone which regulates blood sugar in our body.
Diabetes is one of the most deadly diseases and also a leading cause of death all over the world. In India, there are 50 million people suffering from diabetes and 420 million worldwide approximately. The figure is expected to rise more in upcoming years. Diabetic patients are recommended to keep a track of their glucose level and in some cases take insulin externally to maintain proper health. Instead of visiting the doctor and keeping a log of your glucose levels every time, a device called Smart Glucometer is developed.
What is Smart Glucometer?
Glucometer is a device used to measure glucose levels of diabetic patient. It is very important to keep the sugar levels in normal range between 70 to 120 mg/dl before meals and under 140mg/dl after meals. So, a self-monitoring and portable glucose measurement device is developed and approved by FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to save time and efforts of patient. This system works on touch and is capable to collect the data by using electrochemical sensor. What makes it smart is, real time monitoring and data can be sent on to the application or software to keep the track of recorded data.
This device gets connected into your smartphone via headphone jack. Blood sugar testing is done with the help of strips which is given by every Glucometer. There are many variant of Smart Glucometer, some also provide wireless feature to measure and transfer the data into the app.
Some of the benefits of Glucometer are:
Ø Reliable and accurate.
Ø Real time monitoring and keeping log of every data.
Ø Data can be shared with doctors from your app.
Ø Compatible with Android above 5.0 and iOS.
Ø Easy to use.
