Measuring blood sugar with light
[Via Phys.org – latest science and technology news stories]
One of the keys to healthful living with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes is monitoring blood glucose (sugar) levels to ensure they remain at stable levels. People can easily and reliably do this at home using electronic devices that read sugar levels in a tiny drop of blood.
Pretty nice technology. Still a little too large to be useful but they hope to have it in a convenient size in a few years.
