People with diabetes strive for better control of their blood sugar. Unfortunately, the current alternatives for measuring glucose have shortcomings that can make achieving better glycemic control difficult. Finger sticks are the most common way to measure glucose, but they give a very limited view of glucose levels. You only see what your glucose is at one moment in time, the moment you take a finger stick. Between finger sticks, there can be wide variations in your glucose level.
Invasive continuous glucose monitoring provides a steady view of glucose levels, every few minutes, but with invasive sensors that can be painful. In contrast, the C8 MediSensors Optical Glucose MonitorTM System is designed to provide the same steady view of glucose levels using our non-invasive technology to read your glucose levels.
you can check your glucose continuously, conveniently, and discreetly. Smaller than a deck of cards, the monitor is worn on a band around the abdomen and it disappears under your clothing. You can view continuous readings simply by glancing at your smartphone.
