Diabetic Alert Dogs
Diabetic alert dogs are trained to recognize the out of range blood sugar levels experienced by a person with type one diabetes, and to alert well before the life-threatening seizure or black out.
Diabetic alert dogs are Service dogs and truly amazing companions. We train service dogs to increase the quality of life for children and adults living with type one diabetes, particularly those who experience hypoglycemic unawareness.
Normally a person with diabetes can feel their blood sugar dropping or spiking rapidly, they may become lightheaded, drowsy or experience headaches. Diabetics that suffer from hypoglycemic unawareness do not readily feel the effects of the change to their blood sugar and are therefore at high risk for life-threatening seizures and complications especially while they sleep.
Diabetic Alert Dogs Smell Diabetic’s Blood Sugar Dropping
Diabetic alert dogs can smell a diabetic’s blood sugar dropping and alert the diabetic in advance of a crisis. Diabetic alert dogs are trained to alert their owner to the onset of a change in their bodies chemistry and keep alerting them until the condition is corrected or until they receive help as needed.
