Wow! This is awesome; I used to have to monitor my mother's glucose, and it just seems a little much to have to keep pricking your finger like that.
This is great news! I hate getting my finger pricked when giving blood so I cant imagine having to do it every day!
@Sjeanyoon yes! I hope in the future no finger pricking will be required
