Default New Blood Testing Device, No Finger Sticks

A very interesting device for measuring blood glucose, without drawing
blood!! The designers are confident that in a relatively short period
of time it could be available in both portable and wearable forms.

New Diabetes Test Could Offer 'Real Freedom'

I have been Type 1 for 73 years. My A1c is 6.2. I pump with the MM 630, and I am using the Dexcom G5.

Interesting indeed. Wonder how small the wearable one would be and hopefully the model they show is not the portable.

Very interesting!!! Hopefully it's inexpensive enough to do away with the outrageously expensive test strips.

The cynical Scotsman says, not a chance, but I hope you're right and that cynical old git has it wrong.
