From Mumbai, India:

Is there any other method available for monitoring blood sugar constantly and non-painfully?


The newer meters such as the One Touch® Ultra and FreeStyle are approved for "alternate site testing" which can be done on the forearm and typically is painless. I'm not sure if these are available in India.


[Editor's comment: Also look at Blood Glucose Meters, Lancets and Lancing Devices, Alternate Site Testing, and Non-invasive Blood Glucose Meters on this website. SS]
