Making existing treatments smarter
Severe diabetes can be tough, with constant injections, a strict diet, and regular blood-sugar monitoring. It’s one of the major causes of death in developed countries  and a problem that’s getting increasingly worse over time . If the body can no longer produce or use enough insulin, its blood sugar will spike – which can lead to more serious health issues . What’s more, diabetes often goes undiagnosed, resulting in unexpected damage to the heart, eyes, nerves, kidneys, and other parts of the body.
Over the past few decades, this sneaky condition has kept my predecessors more than busy. And with the number of diabetes patients on the rise , they could do with a helping hand!
I hope to give healthcare veterans – like needles – a well-earned break. I belong to a group of tiny little helpers, which have the potential to monitor future diseases, detect issues early, and help treat chronic conditions – as and when they occur in the body .
