Diabetes Alert Dogs are trained to alert their owners in advance of low (hypoglycemia) or high (hyperglycemia) blood sugar events before they become dangerous. That way their handlers can take steps to return their blood sugar to normal such as using glucose sweets or taking insulin. A Diabetes Alert Dog is specifically trained to react to the chemical change produced by blood sugar highs and lows.
