Monitoring Blood Sugar Without a Stick

Monitoring blood sugar without a stick is the next new technology on the horizon. Wearable devices are able to track heart rates, step counts and track distance covered. But new technologies will turn monitoring devices into powerful tools for medical use. Imagine wearing a device that could track your health and update your doctor or medical providers.

Monitoring Devices into the Future

There is one device that can measure standard fitness but also your blood pressure, blood sugar, provide an EKG, and check your sleep quality. There are many other health monitoring features. Fabio Galdi, creator of the device stated, “I am personally excited by this development. This is the first time that I am aware that PPG technology has been used to estimate blood glucose in a wearable device designed for the consumer market. It will address a very real, painful and expensive need.”

According to the International Diabetes Federation 1 in 11 people throughout the world have diabetes. That equates to over 400 million people. The importance of blood glucose monitoring is critical to health and avoiding complications from the disease.
