A New Wearable Smart Device To Measure Sugar Level, Stress And Inflammation From The Sweat

Know how to reverse type 2 diabetes.

The scientists at the University of Texas, the United States have developed a new wearable device to measure sugar (glucose) level in the sweat for every one hour and up to one week. The device is costing between 10 and 15 cents.

A wearable smart device to measure sugar level, stress and inflammation from the sweat.

The inbuilt sensors in the wearable device can help patients of diabetes in managing the symptoms and also can help the healthcare professionals in providing better treatment options to patients with diabetes.

The device can also measure two more health conditions and biomarkers. The stress level with the help of the cortisol and the inflammation with the help of interleukin-6 (IL-6) in an individual.

The authors of the study say that the cortisol level will increase with chronic stress. The increase in the cortisol level can increase insulin resistance. The increased insulin resistance will keep the blood sugar (glucose) at a higher level and can increase the risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in a patient. The body organs will be affected by the inflammation associated with type 2 diabetes (T2D).

The device was designed to work on all types of skin without sacrificing the performance of the device. The device uses a gel, known as an ionic liquid, which can help the skin in stabilizing the microenvironment. The wearable device can be connected to a smartphone App and the data can be sent to the healthcare professionals.

The lead author of the study was Shalini Prasad, Associate professor of bioengineering, the University of Texas, Dallas, United States. The study was published on June 8, 2017, in the Scientific Reports. Title of the article was "A new paradigm in sweat based wearable diagnostics biosensors using Room Temperature Ionic Liquids (RTILs)"."

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (Apnoea. OSA) Can Increase The Risk Of Diabetic Retinopathy In Patients With Type 2 Diabetes


A study at the University of Birmingham, Birmingham, the United Kingdom shows an increased risk of vision due to the diabetic retinopathy with obstructive sleep apnea (apnoea. OSA) in patients of type 2 diabetes (T2D). They say that obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is an independent predictor for the progression of diabetic retinopathy (an eye disease).

Obstructive sleep apnea (apnoea. OSA) can increase the risk of diabetic retinopathy in patients with type 2 diabetes.

The 43 months follow-up study on about 230 patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) shows that higher incidence of diabetic retinopathy in those patients with obstructive sleep apnea when compared with those patients with no obstructive sleep apnea. They found a higher risk of the development of severe diabetic retinopathy among type 2 diabetes (T2D) patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

But the study shows a reduction in the risk of diabetic retinopathy associated with obstructive sleep apnea with the use of CPAP machines.

They advise healthcare professionals to test for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in patients with diabetes as this condition is common.

The corresponding author of the study was Dr. Abd A Tahrani, NIHR Clinician Scientist, the University of Birmingham. The study was published on June 8, 2017, in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. Title of the article was "Obstructive Sleep Apnoea and Retinopathy in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes: A Longitudinal Study".

8. Wearable Technology For Elder Care


CPAP: The CPAP machine is a small machine that can help the patient to breathe easily during sleep for a patient with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

The CPAP machine can eliminate the snoring, can prevent the collapse of the airway and obstructed breathing (apneic) during sleep.

There are no serious side effects with the use of the CPAP machines. But some patients may experience symptoms like nasal congestion, rhinitis (hay fever, pollen allergy) or a runny nose.
