Testing for diabetes is relatively simple.

This is a more advanced form of testing and of course requires advanced equipment. In fact, many health centers have now started using urine dipsticks instead as they are very reliable. Here is our smart home test that you can do yourself, the principle is the same as used in healthcare.

Diabetes is common and it affects more and more people. The reason for this is believed to be changed eating habits and above all that the food and drink we consume today is not optimal. Therefore, more and more people are getting tested; if the disease is detected in time, there are great opportunities to provide the right care and treatment, which in turn leads to a better quality of life.

Note that there are different types of diabetes, type 1 and type 2. By testing yourself with our diabetes test, both forms of diabetes can be detected.

So diabetes is a common disease that causes elevated levels of blood sugar (glucose). This condition is called hyperglycemia (high blood sugar). Hyperglycemia is caused by reduced/decreased insulin levels or the action of insulin. Insulin is a hormone created in the pancreas and its main task is to control blood sugar levels.

There are two types of diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2. In Type 1 (insulin dependent), there is no insulin production at all. In type 2, insulin production is reduced or the insulin is not good enough.
When blood sugar levels rise, the kidneys are overloaded, this leads to glucose being present in the urine. Therefore, measuring glucose in the urine with a diabetes test can be used as a tool to diagnose diabetes.

People with diabetes are more likely to develop complications such as retinopathy (retinal disease), blindness, kidney damage, nerve damage and circulatory problems that can lead to heart disease and stroke. Therefore, it is important to seek medical attention early on in case of a positive result to prevent these complications.
