    Glucose-sensitive nanosensor - could be implanted into the skin like a tattoo and be used as an in vivo glucose monitor for diabetic care. The nanosensor could also track ions like sodium. In development by the lab of Heather A. Clark, Northeastern Univ.

    The Glucowizzard is a potentially life-saving device that does away with painful pricks. Instead, an implant the size of a grain of rice is placed under a patient’s skin and monitors glucose levels and relays the information to a solar-powered watch, making life much easier for diabetics. OMG! I cannot wait for such technology to catch up....look where we've come in the last 20 years...the next 20, I think are going to be even more exciting!

    Telcare BGM blood-glucose meter helps with diabetes care by sending readings directly from the smartphone-sized monitor over T-Mobile's network to an online, Web-accessible database that patients can share with their physicians. Bethesda, Md.-based Telcare says it is the "world's first" cellular-enabled glucometer. An available iPhone app allows for mobile management.
