Diabetic testing gets easier

Of all the problems associated with diabetes, the most painful and bothering one is the trauma of going through the daily blood tests. The worst part according to many diabetics is the finger stick. There are unfortunate patients who use the stick up to six times a day for more than ten to twenty years or so. The main obstacle of these tests is the pain and discomfort associated with them. But researchers and manufacturers have increasingly been developing new ways to minimize the pain from those finger pricks with a growing arsenal of glucose monitors, lasers and lancets.

One of the newest monitors on the market is a device that allows a diabetic to test sugar using less blood, from places other than the fingertip. Other testing systems are still in the pipeline, including a patch that changes color as it draws glucose through the skin and a glucose monitor that is worn like a watch.

Though such innovations are always welcome, one shouldn’t lose track of the real goal – prevention. Even small changes in diet, exercise and weight can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. For people who already have the disease, such steps can help minimize complications and the need for medications. The biggest challenge for those suffering from diabetes is to stay focused on leading a healthy life, inspite of being a diabetic. This disease cannot be wished away. It can only be controlled
