Article from Bhavik

Thanks to Bhavik for sending this article our way. It exposes how an enormous amount of diabetics in the UK are not being given proper annual tests. Although the primary care trusts (PCT) claim they have high percentages in most areas, it is still surprising to see some areas as low as 10%. That means that 9 out 10 diabetics are not getting tested for potential complications. It was mentioned that this could be due to the increasing number of newly diagnosed diabetics. If this is the case, then a simple combination of automated reminders and updates to the PCT through an app would help out. Potential future feature. We will have to ask our group of diabetics if this happens in the US, too.

And even more startling was this article, presenting the trials of a potential non-invasive glucometer that tests sugar levels through your breath!
