How Some People with Diabetes Can Eliminate the Pain of a Daily Procedure
Date:11/20/2013

ASHKELON, Israel, Nov. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- How often a person with diabetes must monitor his or her blood sugar is not one-size-fits- all. Factors that play into physician recommendations include type and severity of diabetes, age, duration of disease, presence of diabetic complications and overall health. However, people don't always take good advice to heart and act on it, even from a respected physician—and even when failing to comply can be life-threatening. In the area of diabetes, which in the U.S. alone affects 25.8 million people according to the American Diabetes Association, self-testing one's blood sugar can be an important tool in preventing complications. Blood sugar tests are traditionally performed with a portable electronic device that measures sugar levels in a small drop of blood obtained by pricking the skin with a small needle and provides important information for diabetes management.

Among those who take insulin to manage Type 2 diabetes, doctors may recommend blood sugar testing one or more times a day, depending on the number of insulin doses taken. Testing is commonly done before meals, after fasting for at least eight hours, and sometimes after meals.

A recent Johns Hopkins study pointed out the need for those with Type 2 diabetes to monitor blood sugar levels more than twice a day, as suggested by the International Diabetes Federation. This recommendation is based on several recent research reports suggesting that sustained elevated blood sugar levels might increase the risk of heart disease and other diseases. Researchers say blood sugar levels exceeding 150 milligrams per deciliter on a sustained basis increase the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and stroke.

Twice daily (or more) to stick oneself with needles for self-testing? Ouch! But it's not all bad news: in fact, compliance is about to get more manageable, thanks to a man named Avner G
