The Hype Magazine Diabetes: New Technology to Avoid Finger Prick


Diabetes is one of the fastest growing epidemics, affecting more than 400 million people worldwide. Despite many advances, diabetes management is challenging. A key reason: the dreaded and painful, yet essential finger prick that more than 30 million Americans with diabetes have to endure up to 12 times a day. Diabetes Specialist and Nurse Practitioner Amy Folker and Type 1 diabetes patient Reny Partain talk about diabetes management via a new glucose monitoring system that allows diabetes patients to manage their glucose levels without the use of a finger prick for up to 14 days.
