Medicine advances hand in hand with technology and the clear example is Abbott, the global health care company that presented its Lingo device during CES 2022, which will be able to measure in real time the level of glucose, ketones, energy, health in general, and even alcohol levels.

For his part, Hakim Bouzamondo, Vice President of Global Nutrition Research and Development at Abbott, recalled that it is essential to know the role of the microbiota (the set of bacteria that colonize the skin and the digestive system) in communication with other organs such as the brain.
“The microbiota allows communication with other organs and is also influenced by our external environment: while I talk to someone, that is a constant communication between your brain, your gut and your immune system. If you interrupt this communication, diseases such as obesity, diabetes can develop, it is important to rely on technology to collect data from the organs ”, concluded Bouzamondo.
