Scientists have created a non-invasive, adhesive patch, which promises the measurement of glucose levels through the skin without a finger-prick blood test

Researchers at University of Bath have developed this non-invasive patch to measure individual glucose levels–the technology essentially involves miniature sensors that use a small electric current to draw glucose out from fluid between cells across hair follicles. Could improve management of diabetic individuals as well as be used in those at risk for diabetes to give them valuable info to prevent the disease. Still need to undertake more clinical trials and demonstrate that the device will function over 24 hours.
