i think this is a wonderful idea. not only for peoples with diabetes, but for all dieters who want to keep their blood sugar levels in balance.
It’s in reality a nice and helpful piece of info. I am happy that you simply shared this helpful info with us. Please keep us informed like this. Thanks for sharing.
I appreciated and interested with this article because it helps diabetic clients to be aware of these things. Thus helping him determine his/ her blood sugar level.
Without question a watch that would show my bloodsugar level at any time, or even on demand by pressing a button, would be the most important discovery for diabetics since insulin.
Not sure I agree that it needs to be super precise either. Even if it has a fault tolerance of as much as +-5, it wouldn’t be usless in my opinion.
Good post, Any new methods must be at least as precise and reliable as measuring glucose in a drop of blood, if not, it is a waste of time and money.
Thе next step tο getting a sweet tattoo іѕ tο select thе rіght tattoo design, thе very first time (bесаυѕе уου don’t really hаνе a second chance).
I am ready and willing to do any of those trials! Just let me know when. Jenn from AZ
Just wanted to know is there any natural remadies for diabetes.
My grandmother suffered from diabetes – How I wish breakthroughs like these could have come sooner, would have made a big difference in her life she really hated testing. She probably would have jumped at the tattoo test method.
I simply couldn’t go away your site prior to suggesting that I extremely loved the standard info a person supply in your guests? Is gonna be again frequently to investigate cross-check new posts
Other ways to detect the blood sugar is welcomed,but finding blood sugar from tears is not worth.
A glucose-sensing tattoo, it sounds cool. I hope it can be released for public soon.
A glucose-sensing tattoo might work for both giving beauty look and being healthy too. Please correct me if I got wrong understanding.
