Research: Monitoring

Question from Fairfax, Virginia, USA:

What's the latest word on non-invasive monitors? I work in a veterinary clinic, where we often care for diabetic animals, but sometimes drawing blood from them can be challenging, to say the least! Anything else in the works?

Answer:

You can read up on the Continuous Glucose Sensor by MiniMed (continuous, but invasive) and the GlucoWatch by Cygnus to get more information. The near infra-red sensors seems to be more elusive at this time.
