New technologies and innovations in the field of medical care would greatly improve the lives of patients with diabetes. In the last couple of years have been developed many devices that allow for the measurement of blood glucose levels without a needle. Therefore, people who have diabetes don’t have to think about the level of blood glucose levels 24 hours a day, 7 days out of 7, and for the rest of their lives.
Classical tests of the blood, by the pricking of my thumbs, I’m frustrated, it generates a behavior, social withdrawal, and is causing a real social handicap, especially in the case of young people. People who have diabetes need to stick to even 10 times a day to monitor the glucose level in the blood.
For the scientists, doctors, and professionals in modern technology, finding a method that would allow for the monitoring of the most simple and most comfortable of the level of blood glucose has been, and still is, a challenge.
Let me introduce you to in this article are the most popular of which make it possible to measure blood glucose levels without a needle, and the details of each and every one.
Sensor implantable for monitoring blood glucose levels
Are you already in the commerce of the sensors for the monitoring of blood glucose levels, which can be run without the patient having to jab every day on her finger? It’s all about the sensors, implantable, that provide a constant stream of information about glucose levels.
There are a lot of products like this, but this is one of the most modern, it’s Eversense, already available in Europe. The product of the company Senseonics, the sensor is an implantable Eversense works on the basis of the fluorescence, an innovative technology, by measuring the level of glucose in the interstitial fluid of the skin. The sensor has a shelf life of about 90 days.
It is small in size and does not require a battery, supplied to the wireless via a small transmitter worn on the upper arm. It gets the data in real-time from sensors and transmits them to the phone via Bluetooth. In the light of the values, the sending device-specific alarms, both the sound and vibration of the unit. The app is available for Android and iOS devices in the English language.

The devices, which are replacing the sensors of the implantable
The innovations in this field, however, is not limited to the sensors are implantable. In the future, diabetics will be able to use the device more comfortable, secure, and accurate. One of them is the bracelet You track your Glucose.
The bracelet You track your Glucose
When worn on your hand, these bracelets will be the analysis of the level of blood glucose through the testing of body fluids from the skin. It works with an app available on iOS and Android devices, through which the patient can very easily record your blood sugar levels. The bracelet operates on the basis of a micro race, thinner than one millimeter, which pierces only the top layer of the skin, in order to absorb the fluids of the body.
The meter that goes for the kids: children’s FreeStyle Libre
In the summer of 2016, the European Union has approved the sale of the meter, without the sting that can be used, including, for children between the ages of 7 and 14 years of age: the FreeStyle Libre. The device is made by the comedy team of Abbott and the initial approval for use in adults only. The system includes a sensor that is attached to the forearm for a period of 14 days, by removing the sting out of the routine of his finger. In addition, the system does not require calibration, and allows for continuous monitoring, in real-time.
One of the major advantages of this monitoring system is the control of the time during the night, or of sleep in general, and it is also one of the major concerns of parents of children with diabetes. The biggest risk is the possible episodes of hypoglycemia during the night (low glucose), which can be life-threatening.
