During this time if we had concerns over the rise in blood sugar levels, so the only way out i.e. going to the health club and took some of the blood with syringes and measure it in the assay. But this method proved extremely time-consuming that effect thus making the diabetics lazy to do some checking routines and of course bad implications inasmuch as this disease requires a pattern of healthy living.
These conditions encourage five GMU, GMU is one of the famous University in Indonesia namely Ayu Rahmawati C Dieni from Prodi, Nurul Fajriati Setyaningrum and Atika Nurul Haniyyah from Nutritional Health Status, as well as Abdullah Ibn Hasan and Ardi Yusri Hilmi from Prodi electronics and Instrumentation to create tools to measure blood sugar levels or glucometer non-invasive that is named Glucosaga. Ayu Rahmawati told reporters Wednesday (2/8/2017) reveal the tools deliberately created to ease the diabetics to check their blood sugar levels.
“Sometimes the needle stabbings method to finger the patient requires much repetition because a blood sample which is less. That’s why we try to make the tool with sensors that the way it works is easy but the results are also accurate, “he said.
This Glucosaga according to Ayu has some components such as sensors, readers of the blood sugar levels and the LCD will display the data. “The use of fairly easy i.e. putting sensors on the bottom of the ear and then presses the start button and later direct reading of the results can be seen in blood glucose levels are displayed on the LCD screen,” he said.
Not only is it easy, it turns out that Glocosaga is also equipped with a smartphone application that can help sufferers in knowing history travel sickness diabetes like SagaDiary, Reminder, and Activity tracks that used to look at the history of blood glucose levels and maximum calorie consumption per day.
“Reminder serves as a reminder for some specific activities such as taking medication, exercise, and so on. While the Activity is to write Tracks all activities conducted. The data results of the reading of blood glucose levels can be shipped and stored at regular intervals on the application, “Nurul Fajriati said.
Now, his hope the tool could soon be mass-produced in order to assist the diabetics in Indonesia. “After going through research and development then the expectation can be produced immediately and hopefully not much longer,” he said
