A Fitness Tracker and a Glam Accessory in One – Everyday Diabetes

A Fitness Tracker and a Glam Accessory in One

SHARE

Say goodbye to gigantic watches that will never fit your day to day outfits or running shoes that you only wear when you’re working out. There is a new fitness tracker in town and it comes in the form of a ring!The Motiv ring is a heart rate sensor, fitness tracker, and sleep tracker, and it’s about the size of a wedding band. And you can wear this 24/7, unless when you need to charge it for 90 minutes (battery claims to last for 5 days though).

BussinessInsider reports:

The ring is designed to be worn on your hand 24 hours a day, and its charge lasts for up to five days. When it does need to be charged, it just sits on a small charger you can attach to your keychain.

Motiv has been working on the ring for the past five years to make it as small and slim as possible while still counting your steps, tracking your runs, and helping you get a sound sleep.

Diabetics Could Say Goodbye to Finger Prick Test Thanks to Revolutionary Device – Everyday Diabetes

Diabetics Could Say Goodbye to Finger Prick Test Thanks to Revolutionary Device

Scientists in Wales have developed a portable blood glucose measuring device which uses microwaves instead of the traditional finger prick.

For diabetics, the self-test of their blood glucose, generally requiring them to prick a finger and test their blood using chemically-coated paper and a small device is a way of life.

That might not always be the case now that scientists in Wales think they’ve found a better device that will allow for more continuous monitoring.

A newly-designed device from Scientists at Cardiff University tests glucose levels through the skin by using microwaves –a process that eliminates the need to bleed and use testing methods that have an expiration date.

Dr Heungjae Choi demonstrates how the device can be worn

The innovative device is worn on a person’s arm and allows for continuous monitoring of blood glucose. It also allows even allows health care providers to monitor patient conditions via the web.

“Patients are very keen on this,” Stephen Luzio, a professor at Swansea University who has been working with scientists at Cardiff University, said in a press release. “One of the big problems with patients measuring their glucose is they don’t like pricking their finger, so there’s a lot of interest.”

Development of the device began in 2008 on a $1.4 million grant from the Wellcome Trust, a U.K.-based health charity, to find an easier, less invasive method of diabetes monitoring.

“The monitor uses microwaves and is very safe,” said Adrian Porch, a professor at Cardiff University. “The levels of microwaves are very, very low. If you think about a mobile phone then they are about a thousand times less than that.”

Luzio and Porch have already conducted trials with patients, with more tests planned for later this year.

The hope is that the device will be available within five years.

Can Your Smartphone Control Diabetes? Here’s How. – Everyday Diabetes

Can Your Smartphone Control Diabetes? Here’s How.

SHARE

Cells engineered to produce insulin under the command of a smartphone helped keep blood sugar levels within normal limits in diabetic mice, a new study reports.

More than 415 million people worldwide are living with diabetes, and frequently need to inject themselves with insulin to manage their blood sugars. Human cells can be genetically engineered into living factories that efficiently manufacture and deliver hormones and signaling molecules, but most synthetic biological circuits don’t offer the same degree of sensitivity and precision as digital sensors.

Combining living tissues and technology, Jiawei Shao et al. created custom cells that produced insulin when illuminated by far-red light (the same wavelengths emitted by therapy bulbs and infrared saunas). The researchers added the cells to a soft bio-compatible sheath that also contained wirelessly-powered red LED lights to create HydrogeLEDs that could be turned on and off by an external electromagnetic field. Implanting the HydrogeLEDs into the skin of diabetic mice allowed Shao and colleagues to administer insulin doses remotely through a smartphone application.

They not only custom-coded the smartphone control algorithms, but designed the engineered cells to produce insulin without any “cross-talk” between normal cellular signaling processes. The scientists went on to pair the system with a Bluetooth-enabled blood glucose meter, creating instant feedback between the therapeutic cells and the diagnostic device that helped diabetic animals rapidly achieve and maintain stable blood glucose levels in a small pilot experiment over a period of several weeks.

The authors say that successfully linking digital signals with engineered cells represents an important step toward translating similar cell-based therapies into the clinic. A related Focus by Mark Gomelsky highlights the findings further.

Want to Know Your Blood Sugar Levels After a Meal? Download an App – Everyday Diabetes

Want to Know Your Blood Sugar Levels After a Meal? Download an App

SHARE

If someone can predict what your blood sugar levels will be after having a meal, wouldn’t it help you a lot as a type 2 diabetic? Glucoracle is a new app for people with type 2 diabetes that uses a personalized algorithm to predict the impact of particular foods on blood sugar levels.

“Our algorithm, integrated into an easy-to-use app, predicts the consequences of eating a specific meal before the food is eaten, allowing individuals to make better nutritional choices during mealtime,” said lead author David Albers, PhD, of Columbia University Medical Center in a press release to Medpagetoday.com.

ScienceDaily reports:

Columbia University researchers have developed a personalized algorithm that predicts the impact of particular foods on an individual’s blood sugar levels. The algorithm has been integrated into an app, Glucoracle, that will allow individuals with type 2 diabetes to keep a tighter rein on their glucose levels — the key to preventing or controlling the major complications of a disease that affects 8 percent of Americans.

Big Tech Companies on Diabetes Management Solutions – Everyday Diabetes

Big Tech Companies on Diabetes Management Solutions

SHARE

Apple ain’t the only one working on technological solutions to help manage diabetes, Amazon and IBM have joined the bandwagon (or perhaps pioneered even before Apple). Amazon has partnered with pharmaceutical giant Merck & Co., Inc. and is challenging developers to create Alexa-powered solutions to improve the lives of people managing Type 2 diabetes.

International Business Machines Corporation, on the other hand, is working with Medtronic plc to develop a new generation of personalized diabetes management solutions.

Medpagetoday.com reports:

Now thanks to a partnership between Amazon, Luminary Labs, and Merck, Alexa might soon be able to help those with diabetes self-manage the condition. The Alexa Diabetes Challenge is accepting submissions from now until Monday, May 22, 2017, at 5 p.m, ET. Up to five finalists, all who receive $25,000, will be announced in July and placed into a “virtual accelerator” for prototype development, and in September, a winner will be announced.
