Hello, my nephew has type 1 diabetes and also has Asperges

Customer Question

Hello, my nephew has type 1 diabetes and also has Asperges syndrome. His parents worry that at night he might have a hypo in his sleep and they wouldn't know about it.

Can you tell me if there is anything like an armband that he could wear at night to check his body temperature and maybe give off an alarm if it is too low?

Many thanks.
