Glucose Meter: This is a common device used by people with diabetes to
measure their blood sugar levels. It usually involves pricking a finger to
obtain a small drop of blood, which is then analyzed by the glucose meter
to provide a reading.
Insulin Pump: An insulin pump is a device that delivers insulin continuously to help manage blood sugar levels. It can replace the need for multiple daily injections by providing a steady stream of insulin.
Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM): This is a device that continuously tracks blood sugar levels throughout the day and night. It provides real-time data and alerts, helping individuals with diabetes to make informed decisions about their diet, exercise, and insulin dosing.
Artificial Pancreas: This is a closed-loop system that combines an insulin pump and a CGM. It automatically adjusts insulin delivery based on real-time glucose readings, mimicking the function of a healthy pancreas.
