Israeli Company Offers Glucose Testing Without the Blood Draw

For people with diabetes, and others with glucose issues, one of the most difficult things about managing their condition is the need to check their blood-glucose levels many times a day. Usually this involves pricking their finger, a practice that gets very old multiple times a day, day after day, year after year.

Thankfully, an Israeli company has developed a new method for testing glucose levels that doesn’t require access to the patient’s blood.

The Israeli company Integrity Applications put more than a decade into developing GlucoTrack, described as the first truly noninvasive system for self-monitoring glucose levels.

Instead of drawing blood, you clip the GlucoTrack sensor to your earlobe. A patented combination of ultrasonic, electromagnetic and thermal technologies works with a proprietary algorithm to measure physiological parameters correlated with glucose level.

Results are displayed within about a minute on a USB-connected handheld control unit, which also stores and compares previous readings. The number is announced verbally, facilitating use by elderly and vision-impaired people with diabetes or pre-diabetes.
