Smart diabetes management with diafyt

Dear Sir or Madam,

Diabetics know it: Their condition requires them to be mindful to control their sugar metabolism and to prevent hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia. At the same time, blood glucose that is badly regulated is also a risk factor for other diseases in the long run. The Dresden University of Technology and the Leipzig start-up diafyt now want to make diabetes management easier. Learn in our current interview how AI, a smart insulin pen and novel sensors work together to achieve this.

Stay healthy!

When they are presented with respiratory disease, physicians listen to the lungs and airways to assess the sound of the patient’s breath and cough. Artificial intelligence now helps patients with respiratory diseases even outside of the doctor’s office: "ResGuard Med" monitors coughing during the night, detects the worsening of symptoms and issues an alert.

World Laboratory Day 2022: Celebrate your lab!

Laboratory equipment and diagnostic tests, Public Health & Associations

Drugs, vaccines, pathogen vulnerabilities, information about genetics and genetic material - the cornerstones of modern medicine are laid in research laboratories. And without efficient laboratory diagnostics, we would not be able to detect and treat a wide range of diseases. Two reasons to celebrate laboratories and the people who work there.

We all make mistakes from time to time or forget to do things. But people with diabetes can have serious health problems if they miscalculate or inject the wrong insulin dose. A research team from the Dresden University of Technology (TU Dresden) and a startup from Leipzig aim to make living with diabetes easier for patients thanks to a combination of self-learning AI and a high-tech insulin pen based on innovative semiconductor sensors to measure glucose levels.
