Type 2 diabetes develops when the body cannot use insulin properly or make enough insulin, so the body cannot properly use or store glucose (a form of sugar) and sugar backs up into the bloodstream, raising blood sugar levels. In the United States, some 8.9 percent of adults 20 and older have been found to have diabetes, and health officials estimate that another 3.5 percent have undiagnosed diabetes.

With DietSensor, we want to make food tracking so easy and accurate, that anybody will be able to know what and how much he or she is about to eat, everyday, without a huge effort. We want to empower people regain control of their food intake, especially those who are suffering from being overweight or with chronicle diseases related to nutrition. The SCiO sensor from Consumer Physics and a bluetooth scale now give us the ability to automatize nutrient counting. But more than that, DietSensor is about giving advice, driven by the user’s profile and goal and the meal he just recorded.
