  • Patent number: 9675289
    Abstract: A system and method for monitoring individual metabolic response and for generating nutritional feedback involve monitoring of a glucose level in a qualified subject. The method comprises the step of consecutively performing a plurality of measurements of a glucose level in the qualified subject by a measuring device. In the measuring device first data corresponding to the measured glucose level is generated. This data is further transmitted to an analysis device. There, second data is generated representing at least one measure for variability of a glucose level of the subject from a time-series of glucose measurements represented by the first data. The second data is compared with reference data and a result of the comparison is further processed for generating a conclusion about nutritional quality of foodstuffs consumed by the subject and/or about a risk of long-term health complications of the subject. Finally, feedback is provided corresponding to the conclusion on an output device.

  • Patent number: 7912674
    Abstract: A method for processing a chronological sequence of measurements of a time dependent parameter measured in or on a human body, in particular of a physiological glucose concentration, and a system thereof are disclosed. A database stores a plurality of chronological sequences of measurements of the time dependent parameter and computing and display equipment graphically displays on a user interface display at least three of the measurements of a stored sequence simultaneously. The method as well as the system enable a patient to improve self-management skills concerning a therapy that affects the behavior of the parameter.

  • Publication number: 20100075353
    Abstract: A system and a method for monitoring individual metabolic responses and generating nutritional feedback based on the monitored responses in a qualified subject are disclosed. Measurements of glucose level in the subject are consecutively performed by a measuring device to generate corresponding first data. Subsequently, data is transmitted to an analysis device, where second data representing glycemic responses is generated from a time-series of glucose level measurements represented by the first data. In a next step, the second data is compared with a predetermined individual glycemic response budget for the subject which represents a total amount of individual glycemic responses allowable for a certain time period. Finally, feedback corresponding to the result of the comparison is provided by an output device.
