Today’s topic for Diabetes Blog Week is Fantasy Diabetes Device!
Today let’s tackle an idea inspired by Bennet of Your Diabetes May Vary. 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?
I guess that to be stuck with diabetes is to be stuck with diabetes… so what could make that easier?
I think that the device that I would most like to see would be a glucometer that is actually accurate! Its so scary to see those super highs or super lows and then have a second (or third) test tell you something completely different! Its especially scary when I see a high number and know that if I had corrected for it I would be crashing.
Another device that would be wonderful would be something that can accurately calculate the amount of carbs in the serving of food on your plate. I have no clue how that would be done, but gosh that would be nice. Maybe something that takes a picture of what you’re eating and can somehow figure it out? Yeah, I don’t see that happening, but it would be pretty cool!
