University of Brighton researchers have received a £600 donation to fight diabetes

The cash, from Support 4 Diabetes, Mid Sussex, will support the latest in glucose monitoring technology using the university’s unique software and data interpretation systems.

The monitoring system, worn on a patient’s abdomen, can be used to build personal profiles based on an individual’s blood glucose levels and their metabolism.

Dr Wendy Macfarlane, Reader in Molecular Biology and Head of the Diabetes Research Group (DRG) at the university, said: “It can help reverse the effects of diabetes and allow users to build a personalised diet and fitness plan.”

She explained: “The GlycoTrain system and our software combine to allow patients to see their blood glucose levels at all times and help them understand the effects of different foods, exercises and activities on their blood glucose regulation, helping them to make the right choices for their individual metabolism.
