Diabetes is a chronic disease characterized by fluctuations in blood glucose levels.  Hypoglycemia can results in seizures, and hyperglycemia can result in long term complications such as visual loss and kidney failure.  Current management of juvenile onset (type-1) diabetes generally relies on 4 blood glucose tests each day.  These tests often miss hypoglycemia occurring overnight and hyperglycemia occurring in the initial hours following a meal.  Real-time continuous glucose monitoring offers the potential to prevent nocturnal hypoglycemia by the use of real-time alarms, by remote continuous monitoring, and by the use of closed-loop systems controlling insulin delivery.
