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?


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.
