Diabetes Alert Dogs Can Smell Low Sugar Levels!

In today’s world of high technology you probably expect to hear about new technical devices that can alert type 1 diabetes sufferers to dangerous drops in glucose levels but dogs? Well, according to a recent article on dogspired.com that’s exactly what a couple companies are working on. Apparently, a dogs smell can be so sensitive that it can actually smell a person’s blood glucose level.

According to Eli Lilly and Company, after a study in which a specially trained dog was paired with a person with type 1 diabetes the results demonstrated that the dog was able to consistently detect when glucose levels dropped significantly as well as convey a warning to the individual. How’s that for mans best friend!
