My knowledge of the glucose necklace is just from that article, I have not had any conversations with the creator but he has found me on Facebook. I will admit that accepting his friendship was kind of cool because I believe that this necklace could be a huge product for athletes living with diabetes. With that said I will be asking Kris Maynard for an interview or to be a part of an upcoming podcast in the near future. It's a hollow necklace with glucose gel inside, and you squeeze that gel out onto the gums for quick absorption. Resembling those glow necklaces you get at amusement parks, it's made of soft plastic that can be squeezed but won't kink when worn, and it's connected by a magnetic clasp that makes it easy for quick removal and adjustment for any size or shape of person. The magnetic clasp acts as a plug that you remove when needed, to squeeze out as much of the 25 grams of glucose gel inside -- 10 grams more than the American Diabetes Association recommends every PWD carry in case of a low. It's not refillable, so you'd have to buy a new one after using the glucose gel inside.
This is a product that I believe in, I have had blood sugars that fall out of range while on the bike or while running and really wish I had the necklace at those times. Again the glucose necklace is something to keep an eye on for any and all that are living with diabetes. My hopes are to gather more information about the necklace in the coming weeks, I just wanted to share the information for anyone that has yet to read about this amazing invention!!
