Dogs for Diabetes

The threatening type 1 diabetes, or low or high blood sugar, can be recognized by a diabetic indicator dog (often also called a hypohund) who informs the person affected. When the client is asleep, the dog doesn’t rest until they have woken and the necessary measures have been taken. More personal safety improves mobility, independence and the joy of life. The health damages can be minimised.

Some dogs indicate an upcoming health crisis in advance, before it manifests itself, by its trained nose. These dogs can be called ‘warning dogs’; since the trainer does not know when a crisis is developing, this particular warning behavior can not be trained. It is still not clear today whether some dogs whether only some dogs perceive the signs or whether non-warning dogs simply do not understand the importance of the signs.
