A Real Time IOT Enhanced Glucose Monitoring System (EGMS) for Diabetes Patients
C.O. Akanbi and J.O. Akintola
Blood glucose meter (BGM) plays a very important role in diabetes management by providing opportunity for the diabetes patients to monitor blood glucose levels from homes. The major limitation of the existing BGM is the inability to keep track of result records obtained over a long period of time due to the manufacturer threshold setup and limited memory space of the device. To provide solution, this paper presents an Internet of things (IOT) enhanced BGM system. The system design consists of Arduino Uno, INA219 Biosensor, Test Strip and Ethernet module. The software platform for this design was implemented using C Programming Language and Arduino 1.6.4 which logs test results from BGM into a remote database on the Google sheet online. Finally, appropriate testing and performance evaluation for ten patients was carried using voltage level and Blood Flow-rate metrics. The result obtained showed that this proposed system performed very well for various categories of patients.
