Apple is reportedly working on a secret project to monitor diabetic patients via sensors. According to a report by CNBC, the company has hired a group of biomedical researchers to work on the project, which would non-invasively and continuously monitor blood sugar levels to better treat diabetes. The report notes that the company has been conducting feasibility trials and clinical sites across the Bay Area and has hired consultants to help it figure out regulations.

In an interview with The Telegraph back in 2015, Tim Cook had expressed his interest in creating a medical device. He said that the Apple Watch would not become a medical device, but wouldn’t mind releasing something adjacent to the watch. He said that the product “maybe an app, maybe something else.”

Apple has a history of partnering with organizations in order to promote health. Last year, the company announced that it was making organ donation for iPhone users in the US much easier. The company partnered with Donate Life America to allow users to sign up to donate organs via the health app. The company has also partnered with (RED) in order to help fight the spread of AIDS. The company recently launched a limited editions of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus called the (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition. The new edition sports a red aluminium finish and celebrates the partnership between Apple and (RED), which has spanned more than 10 years.
