Man’s best friend, with benefits, these are dogs for diabetics.They are trained to smell dangerous changes in blood sugar levels and alert their owners.It cost around 50000 dollars for the organization to train each dog, but for diabetics who qualify the dogs are free.“This is awesome. I can get a dog to help with my diabetes.”And help they do. This dog named Yancey saved his owner from low blood sugar that could have led to a diabetic coma.“They said to us, the doctor, if she didn’t wake you up, you would not have been made it.”
人类最好的朋友,为人类带来益处。这些是糖尿病患者的狗。它们被训练来嗅出血糖水平的危险变化并提醒它们的主人。该组织每训练一只这样的犬耗费约五万美金,但对于符合条件的糖尿病患者而言这些狗狗是免费的。这太棒了,我可以养一只狗来帮助我的糖尿病。它们确实帮忙了。这只名叫彦希的狗狗救了它的主人,避免其因低血糖而陷入糖尿病昏迷。他们说,医生说,如果不是她唤醒我,我或许就醒不过来了。
Mark Ruefenacht is the founder of Dogs4Diabetics. He is a diabetic who loves to gather data.“I’m wearing two continuous glucose monitors as I’m testing out. Two different brands right now.”One blood sugar monitor shows a reading of 122, the other shows 133, both readings are in the safe normal range.So Ruefenacht demonstrates how his diabetes dogs smell low blood sugar by using jars containing swabs of sweat from a diabetic who did had low blood sugar.
马克·鲁芬纳赫是Dogs4Diabetics的创始人,他是一个酷爱收集数据的糖尿病患者。我正戴着的是目前正在测试的两款不同的连续血糖检测仪,是两个不同的牌子。一个血糖监测仪的读数是122,另外一个是133,两个都在正常且安全的范围内。所以鲁芬纳赫在跟我们说明他的血糖监测犬是如何察觉出低血糖的,狗狗们通过嗅罐子里的一名糖尿病患者处于低血糖时的汗液擦拭物进行训练。
Ruefenacht’s sweat jar method for training his diabetes alert dogs has been validated scientifically.To train dogs to avoid distracting smells, he uses jars with other scents.“Such as peanut butter or dog food or eucalyputus.”But the dogs are not interested in the other smells.This is how they let him know that his blood sugar level is dropping,but because the monitor showed his blood sugar was normal just a few minutes earlier,Ruefenacht decides the dogs simply want to play.“So, now, we’re getting a little bit of attention wanting, because one dog is getting jealous of the other, okay, off, sit.”Ruefenacht continues to explain his training methods, then suddenly…
鲁芬纳赫的汗液罐训练法已经得到了科学认证。为了避免其他气味让狗狗分心,他在训练过程中会增加其他气味的罐子。比如:花生酱、狗粮和桉树气味。但是狗狗对其他气味不感兴趣。这就是狗狗们如何让他知道他的血糖水平在下降的方式,但是因为就在几分钟前监测仪显示他的血糖正常,鲁芬纳赫觉得狗狗们只是想玩。所以,现在,我们就想得到一点点关注,因为一只狗妒忌另外一只,好了,来,坐下。于是鲁芬纳赫继续解释他的训练方法,但突然……
“What, what’s happening is(that) my blood sugar are dropping.Okay, and that’s maybe why they were both alerting at the intensity that they were.Now five, ten minutes later I’m getting the alert that the blood sugars are dropping rapidly."The same meter that had shown a safe blood sugar level of 133 ten minutes ago, when his dogs first alerted,now shows a blood sugar of 83, a 50 point drop.Ruefenacht says that the dogs often noticed dangerous blood sugars before his meters do.“This is persistence, okay? This is not just pressing a button on my phone and turning an alarm off. This is persistence. Good girl.”
我的血糖正在下降,好吧,这也许就是它们刚才为什么如此强烈的提醒我了。现在五到十分钟以后我的检测仪警报响了,我的血糖在急剧下降。十分钟前他的狗狗第一次发出警告的时候,相同的血糖仪显示的血糖是133,现在血糖下降了50点,到了83。鲁芬纳赫说通常他的狗狗会在检测仪之前发现他的血糖变化。这就是坚持不懈,这不仅仅是在我手机上按个按钮,关掉警报。这就是坚持,好狗狗。
Dogs4Diabetes has placed over 100 dogs with diabetics.They hope to expand the program training humanity’s most loyal companion to save lives and help diabetics around the world.
Dogs4Diabetes已经安置了超过100只血糖监测犬。他们希望扩大这个项目培训人类最忠诚的伙伴,以拯救生命和帮助全世界的糖尿病患者。
