The growing need among diabetics for improved continuous glucose monitoring devices

At this rate, more than one in five of the US population will be diabetic, resulting in over 68 million cases of diabetes in the US. As diabetes has a huge impact on the quality of life of patients, this is one of the most important health issues that America will face in the near future.

Life as a diabetic is dangerous; patients must constantly monitor their glucose levels. Blood sugar levels that are too low or too high can have serious health effects for a diabetic anywhere from long term damage to death.

Currently, diabetics have to rely on the finger prick test to check their blood sugar.
