Researchers develop a simple eye scan that detects undiagnosed Type 2 diabetes

A researcher from the University of Exeter is developing a novel method for detecting Type 2 diabetes. It involves a simple eye scan that searches for biomarkers of diabetes called advanced glycation end-products or AGEs. Dr. Mitra Tavakoli, the person behind the study, recently completed a test pilot and said that the results were successful. Using biomicroscope screening, she was able to detect … Continue reading Researchers develop a simple eye scan that detects undiagnosed Type 2 diabetes

Not all it’s cracked up to be: 5G networks won’t solve rural connectivity issues
