If you have Diabetes, do you control it via Diet and/or Insulin shots? | Diabetes runs on my father's side of the family. Thank GOD, that I didn't get it. Everyday he has to check his blood sugar level. It scares me that millions of people go through this everyday. I'm going to give him my iPad & buy this for my dad, and wanted your opinion.

Diabetes Cure Around The Corner?

"... The idea revolves around the stem cell, but instead of the stem cells coming from someplace that would invoke a storm cloud politically, the cells are being removed from the testes of males with the disease, and using a bit of coercion to obtain cells that produce insulin, just as cells in the pancreas would. ..." more

i think you have to do both, im not diabetic but thats what i hear.

as far as for the device, its a cool idea, but why only the ipad or iphone? wouldn't it make sense to make it link to a computer too? like have a little USB port? you could market it to more people that way. you could also burn the information to a CD or put it on a USB stick and bring it to your doctor.

My dad turned 80 years old a few months ago. He has difficulty with technology, so he leaves that to stepmom. Currently, he still pricks his fingers to test --- then writes the results in his log book. I believe there are usb & bluetooth/Wi-Fi solutions, but the VAMC hasn't stepped up, so I will.

I am a type 1 diabetic. If you have type 1, you will control your disease through taking insulin and testing for your blood sugar. If you have type 2, you will control through diet. Type 1 is auto immune, so therefore, you can't control whether you get it or not. Type 2 is generally found in overweight adult.

I don't really understand what this device does? It looks cool though. It would be neat if every time I checked my blood sugar, the number would automatically be sent to my iPhone - or an iPhone attachment.
