Apple CEO Tim Cook test-drove a device that tracks his blood sugar, hinting at Apple's interest in the space

Cook explained that he was able to understand how his blood sugar responded to foods he was eating. He made modifications to keep his blood sugar more constant.

In Silicon Valley, a huge health trend is low-carb, high fat diets. Increasingly, venture capitalists and executives are finding that if they cut down their sugar consumption, they see dramatic results including increased productivity and weight loss.

Cook has a lot of interest in personal health. For instance, he's also an active gym-goer, and recently told CNBC's Jim Cramer that he has lost 30 pounds.

At the University of Glasgow, he reiterated Apple's commitment to the health space and spoke about the struggles faced by people with diabetes.

"It's mentally anguishing to stick yourself many times a day to check your blood sugar," he said. "There is lots of hope out there that if someone has constant knowledge of what they're eating, they can instantly know what causes the response... and that they can adjust well before they become diabetic."
