Tell us what your fantasy diabetes device would be? Think of your dream blood glucose checker, delivery system for insulin or other meds, magic carb counter, etc. etc. etc. The sky is the limit – what would you love to see?
Something that I would love to see is some kind of quick acting glucose that I could use at night that I wouldn't have to wake J up and try to get him to eat or drink while he's half asleep when his blood sugar is low. I'm picturing something like those flat medicine Thin Strips that Triaminic makes:
Why couldn't they make some kind of glucose strip out of these? 15 carbs or 10 carbs each? And then all you'd do is slip one in your sleeping child's mouth and viola! Instant rise in BG and no fuss no muss. No constant night waking to force feed crackers or milk or juice. No worries about tooth decay from juice or milk sitting on the teeth all night. No worrying about him choking on food when he's half asleep. And make them flavorless too. Or maybe just very mild.
Now how do you get a company to consider an new idea???
