    Intriguing, and I appreciate that people are looking into new ways, but I think their basic statement of standard blood glucose testing as being “uncomfortable, disruptive and painful” is just a bad infomercial tactic! Sure, I can make a blood test hurt if I crank the depth setting up on the lancet device, and stab a sensitive part of my finger; but I can also get it done in 15 seconds from start to finish with no pain, no drama, and I can do this in the middle of a meeting without anyone noticing. Maybe I’m doing it wrong???

    [...] Testing Glucose Levels Using Saliva  “…Now imagine being able to check your glucose levels just by sticking a thermometer under your tongue for a few seconds.” Really?  Will it work?  Well, one company thinks so.  There seems to be a bit of a race to get non-invasive blood glucose testing methods to market.  Some smart person figured out sticking yourself is not always the best way for some folks to test glucose levels.  Interesting approach.

    I experience tons of anxiety when I have a low blood sugar. I also begin to have paranoia.
