Diabetes is a growing epidemic in the United States and it kills more people each year than breast cancer and AIDS combined. Until I had a combination kidney and pancreas transplant about ten years ago I was an insulin-dependent diabetic and I had to take two, three and sometimes four injections a day to keep my blood sugar under control.

When I first became diabetic in the early 1970s there was no such thing as home blood testing and you had to go to a doctor or hospital and wait several hours for your blood test results. Today, there are several instant blood testing devices on the market. Here we will tell you about the latest in diabetes management and the newest devices and technology that can help you. Had these technologies been available when I first became a diabetic I might never had suffered kidney failure and needed transplant surgery.


Update November 12, 2018  You've probably heard about the new technology called the FreeStyle Libre system from Abbot. It is a way to check your blood sugar levels without a finger stick or drawing blood. The FreeStyle Libre system according to Abbot is "a continuous glucose monitoring system" that uses a sensor worn on the arm. The sensor is about as thick as two quarters stacked on each other.

Wearing the sensor makes it easy to "scan" the device and read your current blood sugar level. Unfortunately, some users of the system have found that the sensor can fall off or be knocked off the skin when wearing clothes or through normal arm motion. One of the diabetes patients who had difficulty with the FreeStyle Libre sensor falling off is Chris Moxon, so he created a simple way to keep the FreeStyle Libre sensor in place. Below is our half-hour special TV report about the sensor cover.

You can find out more information about Chris Moxon's sensor cover on his website www. and you can order it for your own use. It truly is a better way to secure your sensor so you can give yourself the best available diabetes blood glucose management. It is always a good idea to check with your own physician or caregiver.
