a friend of mine told me theres a watch that checked your blood sugars 24 hours a day. i was wondering if this was true and where i could get one.
This is what I found about the watch. Not sure if its the one you are talking about. http://www.diabetesforecast.org/2015/may-jun/gl...(Phone number can only be seen by the question and answer creators)&p2=^ZU^xpt250^YYA^us
I would like to know more about this watch
I seem to remember checking this out on Amazon some mos ago. There were some not too expensive models. I was on mdi insulin at the time and concerned about going low in the middle of the night because I live alone and don't have anyone to check on me. I think the name brand one has been discontinued.
I have not heard of a watch, but my endo had me use this pad you stick in your stomach (cant remember what its called) but it traced my blood sugars 24 hours a day.
There was high hopes for a product called the Gluco-Watch but it had trouble in trials. There are continuous glucose monitors made by Dexcom and Medtronic. These use a sensor under the skin that last about two weeks and a transmitter with a receiver unit. Be sure to check with your insurance provider as they can be expensive. Just like the Gluco-Watch they have to be calibrated with the traditional finger prick and are not as reliable.
