So be prepared to be skeptical of one type of pill the doctor may prescribe for you. It isn’t medicine. It’s a Smart Pill.
What it was made to do is monitor you intake of medicines. The cool part is, if you are concerned about how your medicines are reacting, or have an issue with remembering to take your medicine…and in some cases, overdose how much you take, this could be a great thing.
The pill is as small as a grain of sand and reports back to a patch you wear and the info is downloaded to the doctor’s computer.
Now, before you think that this is Big Brother coming to the medical community, this pill is 100% voluntary. So, you can opt in and opt out, as you wish.
This is just the first of many that has been approved by the FDA, so you will have a lot more options in the future.
Here is all the info on this pill, and the others coming out, like the one that can help track you GI tract for a number of hard to discover diseases.
