Besides the inconveniences associated with being diabetic, such as monitoring what and when you eat, the greatest inconvenience is monitoring the blood sugar
level. Nobody enjoys pulling out their meter consistently and having to prick their skin constantly in order to take a blood sample!
However, the development of the non invasive glucose meter is changing all that. This means that you don’t have to stick your skin in order to get a blood sample. This is highly beneficial especially from a pain viewpoint and also because constantly sticking leads to the formation of scar tissue on your fingers. This makes it more difficult to get a blood sample and it requires sticking your finger deeper and harder.
This exciting development in diabetes technology, will soon be available, in styles like the glucowatch, which is designed to be worn on the wrist. These meters work by drawing interstitial fluid through the sweat glands in the skin by using a small electric current. This electric current is so small that the only real discomfort associated with using the device is some possible irritation caused by wearing the device around the wrist or arm, and this is usually no more uncomfortable than wearing a large watch or MP3 player.
