Nanorobots and Diabetes

One research group is developing the potential of using nanorobots for treating diabetes. The nanorobots use embedded nanobiosensors in the body to monitor blood glucose levels. The special sensors provide signals to mobile phones carried with the patient. If the glucose level is too low, the nanorobots activate a programmed tune in the cellular phone. The tune alerts the patient to take any necessary action regarding the diabetes. This potential use of the nanorobots may be more convenient and safe for data collection and patient monitoring.

Diabetes 2

Diabetes is a disease that affects the way your body uses food. Normally, your body converts sugars, starches and other foods into a form of sugar called glucose. Your body uses glucose for fuel. The cells receive the glucose through the bloodstream. They then use insulin a hormone made by the pancreas to absorb the glucose, convert it into energy, and either use it or store it for later use.
