Noninvasive Measurement Of Blood Sugar Based On Optoelectronic Observations Of The Eye

Electromagnetic radiation reflectivity from the body is measured. One form of the invention measures essentially without spectral analysis. The eye (30) is an advantageous part of the body for measurement. A monochrome detector array, e.g., black, and white CCD camera (10), suffices for the measurements. The apparatus detects changes in level of the reflected radiation, and relates the changes to glucose concentration. The relationship is monotonic as between glucose, and amount of reflected radiation. The system may operate with visible light, particularly in the yellow/green, or both; and may take into account a reverse signal response in the red IR, or both. 1. Noninvasive apparatus for measuring blood-sugar concentration in a body by measuring electromagnetic-radiation reflectivity from the body; said apparatus comprising: means for directing electromagnetic radiation to such body; and means for receiving and measuring electromagnetic radiation reflected from such body substantially without spectral analysis of the reflected electromagnetic radiation. 2. The apparatus of claim 1 for use in measuring electromagnetic radiation reflectivity from an eye of such body, wherein: the d

    A1C Numbers

    I went to the diabeties center yesterday and i was wondering what peoples A1C is mine was 7.8 and they had to double the amount of insullin im on and that concerns me a real lot. Im so affraid of my numbers dropping down to quick if i dont eat enough but i would really like to know what other peoples A1C is so i can kinda compare. I hope you all read this and give me some suggestions other than diet to help. My diet they said from my log is excellent but my body is not responding well. And now they think i might have cussions syndrome and that could have something to do with my body not responding. I dont know if i have it yet im being tested but the A1C has me very worried.

    Everybody is different, and everybody's blood glucose management will be different, so it's important to check with your doctor about the levels you should aim for. But, there are general blood glucose ranges that you can use as guidelines. Blood-glucose levels are measured in units called mmol/L (pronounced milli-moles-per-litre). The ideal ranges are: Before meals: 4-7 mmol/L Two hours after meals: 8-9 mmol/L At bedtime: 6-10 mmol/L You may nee ...

  • Insulin Levels Vs Glucose Levels

    A low carb helps reduce blood sugars and insulin levels and helps with the management of many of the diseases of modern civilisation (e.g. diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s). We become insulin resistant when our body fat can’t store any more energy. Excess energy is then stored in the liver, pancreas, heart, brain and other organs that are more insulin sensitive. We also see increased levels of energy in o ...
