Blood Tests and Insulin Injections

Question from Stockton, California, USA:

I have heard about a blood sugar monitoring device which allows you to take a reading without actually sampling a drop of blood. It uses a non-stick, Teflon-like system, never thought of! Can you provide any information on this appliance?

Answer:

You are perhaps thinking of the GlucoWatch. You can find more details on the Cygnus website. It is not yet available in the U.S.
