A few weeks ago Glucose Advisors has added a fantastic resource for people with diabetes to better manage their health and activity. There are 1.25 Americans living with T1D (Type 1 Diabetes), including 200,000 youth (less than 20 years old). Less than 1/3 of the people with T1D are achieving target glucose control levels and there is $14B spent on T1D-associated annual healthcare costs each year.


The Engine1 mobile and web apps are designed to give handy guidance, tips and info surrounding activity. Make activity-related decisions in real-time with ease. Be guided on good times to start exercise, quantity of food to be eaten during an activity session and the right intensity of exercise to maintain optimal blood glucose levels.

In regards to IoT, you can use a Bluetooth heart rate monitor to track key physiological energy systems being used and learn from the coach how they affect your diabetes.You can get more infomration about IOT here.

  1. A device which has connectivity. (simply put, it is connected to the Internet)
  2. The device either creates data or leverages it (think of your Apple Watch which measures your health statistics)
  3. Integrates with a software system to interpret the data and then make decisions or take action (the analysis can be highly sophisticated or as simple as responding to a set of preferences or a user generated profile)

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone that enables people to get energy from food. It occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, called beta cells. Living with T1D is a constant challenge. People with the disease must carefully balance insulin doses (either by injections multiple times a day or continuous infusion through a pump) with eating and other activities throughout the day and night. Despite this constant attention, people with T1D still run the risk of dangerous high or low blood-glucose levels, both of which can be life threatening

Solutions like this, tied to mobile devices in the IoT world, will help reduce medical costs and increase healthy living.
