We are cared for …
That is the first thought I had once read it and felt “This needs to be shared!” 
After a small gap of 3 months I come back with a good news.
One of the main issues which affect our diabetes treatment is the lethargy in blood sugar testing.
Why patients become lethargic? Well the answer is pain of needle pricks.

There is our good news! Recently Scientists have developed an adhesive patch, which can non-invasively monitor glucose levels in diabetics through the skin. 
Yes you read it right! No more pricks may be a reality soon…
The patch does not pierce the skin, instead it draws glucose out from fluid between cells across hair follicles, which are individually accessed via an array of miniature sensors using a small electric current. The glucose collects in tiny reservoirs and is measured, according to a study published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology. Readings can be taken every 10 to 15 minutes over several hours. This information can be accessed via smart watch. This will give us the much needed info on blood sugar variations. This will eventually translate to better treatment regimens…
