From Mumbai, India:

Is there any other method available for monitoring blood sugar constantly and non-painfully?


The newer meters such as the One Touch« Ultra and FreeStyle are approved for "alternate site testing" which can be done on the forearm and typically is painless. I'm not sure if these are available in India.


[Editor's comment: Also look at Blood Glucose Meters, Lancets and Lancing Devices, Alternate Site Testing, and Non-invasive Blood Glucose Meters on this website. SS]
