We Can Solve Apple’s Glucose Testing Issues – Just Do This
It’s been reported for over four years Apple is trying to solve the non-invasive way to test for blood glucose levels, yet continue to run into problems.
The problems have not been disclosed by Apple during the development process, but it is almost certain the reason is from inconsistent test readings. Meaning, Apple’s method or technique for reading a body glucose level is not consistent enough to submit for governmental approval.
Hey Apple! If you want to solve your glucose testing issues… listen up, here’s how:
It is well documented the level of glucose in the blood has a direct correlation to the viscosity or fluidity of the blood itself.
We feel the sensor technique from Apple is not accurate enough to determine the viscosity and therefore cannot get accurate glucose readings.
To us this makes sense because whatever sensor the Apple watch is using, is trying to determine levels through a part of skin which is too thick. The wrist.
Forget using the Apple watch as your source for testing. What Apple needs to create is a mouth piece that communicates with the Apple watch and scan the lingual frenulum skin for opacity which in turn indicates viscosity of the blood. The lingual frenulum is the thinnest piece of skin on the human body which gives you the ability to more clearly scan for blood viscosity by determining the level of opaqueness of blood circulating through the lingual frenulum.
A mouth piece would need to be developed to sit under the tongue with a sensor pointed towards the lingual frenulum which would scan the blood circulation or flow and based on color feedback it can be determined the level of sugar in the blood stream at that time.
The “under tongue” mouth piece would be used only when a reading is required by the user. In our estimates the reading would last no longer than 5 seconds.
To get the reading, the mouth piece would be designed to read from the left and right side of the lingual frenulum to determine the opaqueness of the blood. The heavier the viscosity the darker or dense the blood is and therefore more opaque. Blood is lighter when the glucose level is lower and less opaque. Blood is darker when the glucose level is higher.
The “under tongue” mouth piece would communicate wirelessly to the Apple watch to report the reading.
It goes without saying, the above solution is not a finished product. Development and testing of the mouth guard would need to be designed by the Apple HealthCare team. But this hot tip points you in the right direction.
