Diabetes Hypo Alert Dog
daughter Allison is eighteen years old and was diagnosed
with juvenile diabetes at the age of twelve. She has
been taking insulin for the past six years, but still
suffers from low blood sugar attacks that often lead to
grand mal seizures. Needless to say Allison’s episodes
are very frightening for all of us. She wears an early
warning device that will alert her of changes in her
blood sugar, but occasionally the device does not work
Bedtime is a very
stressful time for Alison and our family. Allison’s
blood sugar can and has dropped during the night causing
her to have a seizure. There is also the risk of Alison
falling into a diabetic coma. We decided as a family
that we needed a second line of defense for Allison,
especially when she is alone or going to sleep. We
discovered research about a “Hypo-Alert Dog.” A Hypo-
Alert dog is trained to detect changes in a persons
blood sugar levels by their scent. Fortunately, Our
family dog Ringo qualified for the type of service
training we needed. Ringo is a two year old hound mix
with just the right temperament and intelligence for
service dog training.
Ringo went for several
weeks of training with Jason Devito, the owner of
Canines4hope. We live in close proximity to his facility
so Jason came to our house twice a week until Ringo's
training was completed. It has now been four months
since Ringo finished his service dog training, and he
has alerted Allison on three occasions to a blood sugar
drop of less than forty.
Our family is now able to sleep soundly at night. The
additional confidence Ringo now provides gives us the
second line of defense we so desired. Allison is going
to school in the fall and we have received permission
from the University for Ringo to accompany her. Making
Ringo a service dog is the single best decision we have
made for our daughter.
