This Diabetes Monitor Can Read Your Blood Sugar Without Any Blood | CNBC

I have Type 1 diabetes, which means my body doesn’t produce any insulin. So I have to inject insulin to regulate my blood sugar and check my levels by using a glucometer. This means I have to stick my finger with a needle anywhere from 5 to 10 times a day.

Dexcom provided me with a review unit of its new G6 continuous glucose monitor that’s approved by the FDA to require no blood at all.

CGMs allow diabetics to see their blood sugar throughout the day and night with a sensor that is inserted under the skin. Previously, CGMs needed a blood glucose reading in order to calibrate the device.

The new Dexcom G6 comes factory-calibrated and requires no finger stick. I’ve been wearing the device for nine days and I am really impressed with it.

Apple and Alphabet are moving into the health care. Both companies have been rumored to be working on non-invasive ways to check blood glucose levels but never bought anything to market. Now, both tech giants are collaborating with medical device company Dexcom, a maker of continuous glucose monitors for people with diabetes. CNBC got an inside look at the innovation behind Dexcom’s latest CGM and its manufacturing process to better understand why two of the world’s biggest tech companies are partnering with it.

    I have not seen tech companies push stores to put billboards in stores with topic: "do not eat food with sugar!" or have not seen tech giants asking government to make a law which would stop selling alcohol/tabaco/sugar containing products, instead they are just participating with companies to measure the consequences of problem (meaning they are working on technologies partially to make money and partially to help). Stop selling food containing sugar / fast-food (the root causes) and diabetes and overweight problems are solved.

  31. Corona Bay Therapy

    with Ambrosia's blucon i am able to see sugar readings directly on my apple watch without any mobile phone and this is big achievement by these tech companies. It gives these readings along with trends, no scanning needed. gives alarms when sugars go low or high..guides you for foods which keep sugars stable.

  35. Mainchain

    The food industry makes our bodies develop diabetes from mass bacteria death in ourselfs, we will ALL get diabetes with time, that is why they are doing this. It is the next big income stream.

  36. Moses Mercy
