I did a post last week about a partial permanent body art that could monitor system sugar stages in diabetes patients. It involved nanoparticles being treated within the skin that could constantly indicate system sugar stages by changing shade. There was a tremendous response to that publish, and its no surprise, no one wants to be sticking themselves several times a day to test their blood.
Well, I thought you guys might be interested in another option that may not be that far off the skyline, how about a contacts lens for diabetes patients that can modify shade to be able to aware you to blood sugar stages utilizing a sugar detecting chemical? That would be pretty awesome right?
The contacts feelings the sugar in your rips, and if the sugar is not being digested correctly and sugar creates up in your body the get in touch with will identify the problem and modify shade. Dr. Jun Hu explains that “it works just like the PH paper in your school biochemistry lab” Of course the person wearing the get in touch with will not see the modify unless they look in a reflection. To be able to measure actual system sugar stages attention, one would use a Mobile phone app that examines a picture of your eye.
The lenses have been under development for several decades, and the only ones that exist are simply a model not yet approved for human use, however if the studies can cut through the red tape you might start hearing more about these get in touch with lenses in 3 decades or so. No word yet on price, but it looks like they would cost for the get in touch with lenses and present the associated app at no cost.
