DIY Diabetes Management Technology With Raspberry Pi


Wired has a fascinating article about diabetics who are building and modifying devices to better manage their disease.  Although many advancements have been made in commercial diabetes management technology, many diabetics are frustrated with the slow pace of change and are taking things into their own hands to build their own devices to manage the disease.  Some of these tools include cloud-based applications for parents to monitor their children’s blood sugar levels while at school, or even a Raspberry Pi-based device to monitor and regulate insulin levels directly just like the body’s pancreas!  It’s amazing to see a community of people who are empowered to make their lives better through DIY and maker technology.
