This would be a Great instrument instead of the glucose tester.
The problem is getting these gadgets as close to accurate as
possible, a minimal chance of malfunction, making them reasonably
smaller(the size of a puffer would be Nice) and keeping the price
low enough for all those People without Insurance and who can't
afford out-of-pocket. A Big order for sure.

It's kind of sad when companies are making all these new devices
when 65% of the Diabetic population can't afford them. :( So we'll
see in 5-10 yrs.

Hey hello Terrie, It's nice and painless but it's amazing that there are many tests that requires blood and glucose is just one of them. If there is a machine that tests colestrol then I would be also interested. :)

Hi There Peter: :)

Well, the Breath Tester is still years off but if it was accurate or even as accurate as the meters we have now, I'd get one in a hearttbeat. I'd even carry that Big cannister around with me when I had to go out, if it was accurate. :eek: :D....Mmmm....maybe not.

Yes, they will probably have those type of testers in the future for other tests. That would be Great. I mean it's not rocket science, for gosh sakes.

Well at least that is a test to let us test our BG and manage our own insulin doses. Oh please oh please don't let us use those Clinic test tube tabs again.
