For people with unstable diabetes

Dogs can be trained to identify a scent obtained from a person with diabetes when they are undergoing low blood sugar. The dog is trained to identify that particular scent from other scents that are presented to them.

The dog is then trained to alert the handler, or, in the case of a child, the child’s parent.

This assistance is particularly useful for people with unstable diabetes, especially those that may suffer lows during the night.

No dog can be guaranteed to alert 100% of the time, it is therefore important to keep on testing blood sugar levels.

Diabetes alert can also be trained to respond by carrying out useful tasks 

  • Fetching a medical kit

  • Fetching a blanket 

  • Alert a carer
