GSM – GPRS Glucose Meter

Wireless remote monitoring of glucose using GPRS to send information 

Diabetes is caused when our body’s sugar level or glucose level is high. Insulin is a hormone produced by pancreas which helps the blood to carry glucose. SIFSOF carries a variety of GSM – GPRS glucose meter.

Periodic and selfmonitoring of blood glucose level is necessary for the patients suffering from diabetes. There are mainly three types of diabetes namely, type1, type 2 and gestational diabetes.

In type 1 diabetes, pancreas cannot produce enough insulin as the β cells in pancreas are destroyed. So the pancreas cannot produce sufficient insulin needed by the body, It is also known as insulin dependent diabetes or Juvenile diabetes.

In type 2 diabetes, the body is unable to use the secreted insulin since the cells cannot absorb glucose. Because of the problems with receptors. It is also known as non-insulin dependent or adult onset diabetes.

Gestational diabetes occurs during pregnancy, which leads to type 2 diabetes after delivery. Gestational diabetes occurs during pregnancy as a result of hormonal changes in the pregnant mother. Diabetes develops during the middle stage of pregnancy.

Blood glucose monitoring is very important to keep glucose level under check. But diabetes cannot be cured. Blood glucose monitoring methods can be classified into two methods. They are invasive glucose monitoring method and non-invasive glucose monitoring method.

In addition of displaying glucose levels, the data can be shared by a GSM module. And can be sent to the doctor for patient investigations. The GSM module connected with the microprocessor tracks the location of the patients. And when the blood glucose levels of patients are above the normal values or below the normal values. The device sends the blood glucose level of patient with the doctor and family members.
