From Miami, Florida, USA:

Are there any glucose sensors on the market that you can wear and have it check your sugars through the skin? Where can I get them?


MiniMed has a device that can be worn for three days and the GlucoWatch (which doesn't involve piercing the skin) lasts 12 hours. None of these devices are yet ideal.


[Editor's comment: See The Continuous Glucose Monitoring System and The GlucoWatch. SS]
