Hypoglycemia Symptoms Alarm (known as the HSA-01) is a sleep alarm for symptoms of hypoglycemia.

It's a device worn on the wrist that sounds an audible alarm and vibrates to wake those people with insulin dependent diabetes who suffer from nocturnal hypoglycemia (low blood sugar while sleeping) commonly referred to as an insulin reaction and either don't wake up, or don't wake up soon enough to take corrective action.

Detects common hypoglycemia symptoms

It triggers an alert upon detecting the presence of moisture (perspiration) or a decrease in skin temperature, two common symptoms associated with hypoglycemia.

Other than the purchase price, there are no on-going running costs for the monitor other than changing the batteries every six to twelve months and replacement sensors when required.

From around £79.99.

Wow that would be amazing. I get a lot of lows myself but they don't have anything like here and it's a great shame. It would stop be worrying about getting a low in a shop.

Where can I get one of the hypo symptoms alarm from as I suffer a lot from really low bloods through the night and don't wake up? My partner has to see to me three or four times a week. It all started with coeliac disease.
