PSoC programmable analog & digital resources integrate everything shown in light blue below. Blood glucose meters measure the amount of glucose in blood of diabetics allowing for the administration of the proper dose of insulin to maintain balance. PSoC 3 & PSoC 5 enables a scalable one chip glucose meter solution that flexibly integrates all the basic and advance requirements of a glucose meter. This application note describes how to configure the direct memory access (DMA) to buffer the analog-to-digital converter (ADC) data.
Cypress's PSoC programmable system-on-chip architecture gives you the freedom; to not only imagine revolutionary new products, but the capability to also get those products to market faster than anyone else. The movement of patient care away from hospitals and clinics and into homes is a growing trend.
The Blood Glucose Meter board has been designed to facilitate demonstrations which show PSoC3’s flexibility and analog capabilities in such Portable Handheld devices.
The beta cells in the pancreas of people with type 1 diabetes are not able to produce insulin. For people without diabetes, the pancreas releases a number of hormones for glucose homeostasis.
But current research suggests that the benefits may go well beyond what was previously suspected. Pakistan in cooperation with American researchers on a group of patients with type 2 diabetes.
The researchers gave the diabetic patients either various doses of cinnamon or a placebo for 40 days. Cinnamon supplements are available and are probably fine as long as you don't go overboard with. The benefits of supplementing cinnamon go beyond improved insulin function and glucose control.
Acarbose (Glucobay) is used (with diet only or diet and other medications) to treat type 2 (noninsulin-dependent) diabetes. It is believed that strict sugar control in diabetics decreases the risk of eye, kidney and nerve damage. As we become older our bodies produce more insulin to combat the higher levels of blood sugar (see graph showing increased insulin release with age).

For anti-aging and appetite suppression, take one 50mg Acarbose tablet once, twice or three times daily. Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) is the leading cause of blindness among working adults in developed countries such as Singapore and United States. Patients usually develop DR after 10 years of having diabetes (sometimes earlier).Uncontrolled diabetes allows unusually high levels of blood sugar to accumulate in and damage the tiny blood vessels in the eye. As more and more the blood vessels become clogged, the blood supply to the retina is cut off. Also known as background diabetic retinopathy, is the earlier stage of DR.This condition is usually identified by the deposits formed around the retina due to leakage from the blood vessels. The advanced stage of NPDR which is responsible for most of the vision loss in diabetes.As NPDR progresses into PDR, larger blood vessels become blocked.
If you are interested in the types of treatment available for DA, see my article on Treatment for Diabetic Retinopathy. Glucose meters require a precision analog front end to interface to the optical or bio-sensor based glucose sensor.
Furthermore, the programmable analog front end enabled in PSoC 3 & PSoC 5 provides a more flexible solution for interfacing to the glucose sensor.
It presents different approaches for using the IDACs in applications, and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the topologies presented. It discusses how to overcome some of the limitations of the DMA when buffering the ADC data. Explore PSoC 3's precision analog capabilities through the on board 20-bit Delta Sigma ADC used to measure voltage ranges between -30 V and 30 V.
Acarbose (Glucobay) works by slowing the action of certain chemicals that break down food to release glucose (sugar) into your blood.
Alpha-glucosidase inhibitors are used to help lower blood sugar levels that are not controlled by diet and exercise. Excess insulin is one of Sear’s four pillars of pro-aging, (for more information on this see Dr. Using Acarbose to reduce the amount of sugar the body produces will in turn reduce the levels of insulin produced.
The tablets should be chewed and swallowed prior to a meal or with the first mouthful of food.

To make up for lack of blood supply, the eye attempts to grow new blood vessels.However, these immature blood vessels are feeble and can leak easily.
They even grow in the wrong places such as on the surface of the retina and into the vitreous gel. This blockage builds up pressure in the eye and may result into glaucoma, a particularly severe condition that can cause permanent vision loss. The sensor detects the optical properties of the chemical strip as it reacts with a blood sample. This enables a more scalable platform that can be utilized across multiple glucose meter designs and strip technologies.
A variety of HID devices, including a keyboard with LEDs and a composite device, are used as examples. The design allows for self calibration itself using an internal IDAC and provides sampling rates in excess of 10,000 sps with 3nA resolution.
Acarbose can be used alone to treat type II diabetes or can be combined with sulfonylureas such as glyburide (Diabeta) or metformin (Glucophage) or with insulin. Such leakages cause several complications which may damage the eyea€™s retina thus resulting in vision loss. The analog front end includes up to four channels of trans impedance amplifiers with a gain stage, a precision ADC, and a very accurate voltage reference. A library is also included that implements three of the methods as PSoC Creator? components. This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information. Other design requirements include LCD drive, Real time Clock (RTC), very low power consumption and user interface. Consistent performance across temperature (0-50C) is also essential to ensure accurate diagnosis of unsafe blood glucose levels.
