Blood Tests and Insulin Injections
Question from Bucharest, Romania:
I am looking for a place in New York (preferably Manhattan) to buy a GlucoWatch device for my six year old son.
Although the GlucoWatch has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) its availability is still restricted to a limited number of clinics for use on loan. It is not yet available on the general market.
[Editor’s comment: In addition, it should be pointed out that it has not been approved for use in children.
