Dead In Bed

Dead in Bed Syndrome is a very big concern for diabetics and parents of diabetic kids.

Essentially, of the small number of T1 diabetics under the age of 40 who die in their sleep, 1 in 20 die of an unknown cause that might be hypoglycaemia, but we don’t know because blood sugar levels drop upon death.

Jade Diabetes seeks to reduce this risk by

  • Calculating accurate doses
  • Tracking insulin on board (insulin remaining, also called Active Insulin) very accurately
  • Predicting blood sugar levels and warning of pending hypos
  • Supporting the use of 1/2 and 0.1 unit insulin pens (not syringes) for greater dosing accuracy, especially for children who tend to require very small doses
