Now that the glucose monitoring is at a distance of your smartphone, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), has approved a glucose monitoring device to replace the conventional glucose monitoring methods.
This procedure was never easy but in came the device to revolutionize it.
It consists of a wire that goes below the skin and monitors the glucose level in blood and then pass it on to the receiver device which could be smartphones or tablets. All you need to do is calibrate!
How easy it has become to check your blood glucose level without causing any pain to yourself.
This novel technology has been tested on diabetic patients and proved to be highly useful.
A life changing device that aims to protect them from “Finger pricking” test to check glucose level in their blood.
Diabetes has become globally prevalent and about 1 in 11 individuals in United States of America suffer from diabetes. The conventional way of measuring blood glucose involved finger pricking and then the blood glucose meter took up the blood and measured the glucose level in it. The procedure is repeated three to four times a day which is quite a tough job to perform. However, this novel device has made life easier for diabetic patients for all they have to do is check their smartphones.
Unlike, conventional finger pricking, this device demands calibration with two fingersticks twice a day (once every 12 hours). If our body glucose level fluctuates, either goes too high or too low, this device beeps an alarm to alert the person with diabetes.
Although, this system still requires calibration with two daily fingersticks, it eliminates the need for any additional fingerstick blood glucose testing in order to make treatment decisions. This may allow some patients to manage their disease more comfortably,” said the FDA’s Alberto Gutierrez.
