The self-monitoring of blood sugar remains
paramount in maintaining good balance
in glycemic levels and is the primary goal of
The sudden detection of the disorder can represent a real shock wave within the family circle;
very quickly it appears that:
1 therapeutic management is very invasive.
2 dosage is influenced by several different parameters
not just the quantity of carbohydrates absorbed.
So the various treatments available such as functional insulin therapy (insulin pump), or multi-daily insulin administration, remain only basic and approximate; it is very difficult for the patient to maintain normal blood sugar values on a daily basis.
This complexity, combined with the daily emotional burden of the disorder, can result in a significant source of stress and can sometimes cause a lack of compliancy regarding blood glucose monitoring and sometimes even with insulin treatment in extreme cases 3.
Hyperglycemic phases are the primary cause of this imbalance
and over time can significantly contribute to the development of secondary complications.
So new solutions, which are complementary to current treatments whose aim is to significantly improve blood level values while simplifying the daily management of diabetes, are really necessary.
Post-prandial hyperglycemia represents the major part of daily hyperglycemia due to the fact that it lasts for several hours.
Reducing this time is the easiest approach to improve glycemic control in patients with type 1 diabetes (type 1 diabetes) 4.
