The scientists at Google are rapidly becoming the Thomas Edisons of the 21st century. Now they haver taken on continuous glucose monitoring for managing diabetes. Based on miniaturization developed for cell phones, they have created a non-invasive monitoring device in the form of a contact lens. No more finger pricks, no kidding.
But, it is still in development. The problem with all continuous monitoring devices is continuous accuracy. Current monitors, ones that attach subcutaneously, still need calibration. That means regular finger pricks. All of my fingers are continuously rough around the edges due to the relentlessly regular poking I do to get enough blood to test my sugar levels. I'm ready to try out the contact lens/glucose monitor especially if it can also correct my vision!
