    That tatoo sounds hilarious to me…think it comes in a butterfly design? Or maybe a heart, dagger, and “MOM” combo?

    John L. Smith has written an excellent book that reviews non-invasive glucose monitors and the problems they have in getting them to work. The book can be found on Davide Medosa’s website:

    After reading the book, I am not too hopeful that we’ll see any non-invasive meter in the near future.

    What I think there is hope for is some sort of warning if glucose gets too low or too high at night. That’d be worth $1000 to me.

    Tom, have you considered a continuous glucose monitor? I haven’t used any of the others, but the one put out by Minimed will alarm when you go too high or low. And it’s funny that you should mention $1000….

    I remember 4 years ago when I was diagnosed, I was so happy because I was hearing about inhaled insulin and bracelets that would monitor my sugar… but today I’m still using my 1cc needles, my one touch.. maybe for future generations ?

    That Orsense looks like it could be highly useful to the diabetic endurance athlete! Blood Glucose management on a long ride can be an issue for me, as well as muscle and liver glycogen.
