Service Dogs for Diabetics: A service dog for diabetics is specially trained to assist people with diabetes. These dogs are trained to identify minor scent changes created by hypoglycemia or low blood sugar, and take necessary steps such as alerting medical response. They are also trained to detect changes in the handler's condition, and alert the person to check blood sugar levels or take necessary medications. These dogs detect the faint changes in the scent which can't be detected by humans, and hence prove to be
helpful companions for people with diabetes.
