Type 1 Diabetes - u kit / food kit for Diabetes

Type 1 Diabetes - u kit
Type 1 Diabetes - u kit

It is very inconvenient for patients with type 1 diabetes to eat food. First, they must measure the weight of each food and calculate how much carbohydrate content in this meal. Second, the amount of carbohydrates determines the amount of u (the unit of insulin dose).

Thus, we design u kit to helps patients. Users could input each food’s carbohydrate coefficient in the plate. And, the plate will plus the total amount of carbohydrate of this meal ,and connect with smart phone to tell patients how much u they need. Finally, they do not need to carry scales and a lot of bowls anymore. U kit will be the best helper in their life.
