Company Summary

Pilar Labs will work with restaurants to calculate the carbohydrate values of meals through recipe analysis. This information is extremely important for insulin dependent diabetics, as insulin dosage is based on carbohydrate levels ingested at each meal. Improper dosage leads to hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia; both of which are life-threatening. We will provide this information to our customers, diabetics, through a mobile based application.

    A St Louis native - my passions include food, basketball, photography, and entrepreneurship. In November 2012 I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. As my passion for food was quickly suppressed by the difficulties of eating out as a diabetic, I vowed to change the lack of carbohydrate information (which is crucial for maintaining healthy blood glucose levels) available for meals at non-chain restaurants.
