Finding hope in a patient-driven approach to health data

Danielle Drachmann has been creating awareness about pathological idiopathic ketotic hypoglycaemia since her children as well as herself were diagnosed. This rare condition affects blood glucose and ketone levels within the body – potentially leading to life-threatening attacks, if left untreated.
Health data is essential in the management of the disease, but also for research purposes such as for the development of a device that can purposefully and accurately measure ketone levels continuously. “Currently, we must always use our mind, eyes, and intuition next to the point-of-care ketone equipment we currently have available. That is why we need a close collaboration with the industry, to ensure the continued progress of patient-centred research and innovation.
