For example some one with living with diabetes, hypoglycemia can be a daily problem. Symptoms can vary from confusion to seizures or comas. Once our service dogs are trained to recognize low blood sugar that is out of normal range for the handler they will alert or get help, before the symptoms are felt. They will bring the handler necessary supplies such as glucose and testing kits.
