Researchers Invent New Blood Sugar Monitoring System for Dogs

Researchers at the University of Veterinary Medicine at Vienna, Austria have discovered a new system to monitor blood sugar levels in dogs. The system works by providing accurate and frequent blood sugar reading to the veterinary doctors so that this helps them in treating the disease in the animals.

New Blood Sugar Monitoring System Successful in Dogs

The team headed by Nadja Affenzeller has found out that GlucoDay, a blood sugar monitoring system that has been developed by Mennarini Diagnostics and is currently being used for human beings can also be used for dogs. The team tested 10 dogs and came out with the conclusion that though the dogs were presently being given the right treatment, the findings will help doctors to revise their treatment and make adequate changes to the same. The results also helped the doctors to determine the ease, with which the treatment could be provided due to the accuracy of the information that is provided. The dogs also adapted well to the system.

According to the research team, monitoring and managing sugar levels for dogs and other animals is more difficult than in human beings as the risks of the disease cannot be understood by them. To monitor blood sugar levels in human beings frequent lab testing is required. However, these results are not accurate. A wholesome view of a person’s diabetes can be attained only by taking into account his or hers diet, exercise and other factors. With the discovery of this system veterinary doctors can monitor and better manage blood sugar levels in animals too.
