The pain of pricking your finger, lengthy cleaning process, and carrying a bag of testing kit around is a massive obstacle for prediabetics to leading a healthy lifestyle.

AeroLyze is a glucose breath analyzer. With a single breath, AeroLyze deduces your glucose level based on the exhaled acetone. The lower the acetone, the higher the glucose. Unlike finger-prick testing, breath analysis is painless, easy-to-maintain, and highly mobile. This method enables prediabetics to participate in outdoor activities. AeroLyze is a glucometer that encourages prediabetics to lead an active lifestyle.
