Contact Lenses Could Soon Monitor Glucose Levels

Posted on January 11, 2010 at 5:09pm 13 Comments

This blog post was originally written for VSP's blog. I was fascinated to hear about this new technology, and I'd love to hear what you think about it!

I was amazed to read that contact lenses may soon be a source for measuring glucose. How incredible would that be?

Professor Jin Zhang at The University of Western Ontario developed a technology that allows particles in contact lenses to change color based on the… Continue

Nope, but wish I did. Being a HS vball coach and a T1, I was cheering him on! If you talk with him, let him know he has fans at tudiabetes and should join us.

it's never too late to travel! =) that's what I tell myself all the time...I love traveling so much and just have lists of all the places I want to visit - but I think that Europe with kids is incredibly doable!

so friday afternoon and this morning I spent going from office to office trying to find someone who knew what to do with my request for a new pump and CGMS!! hopefully now I'll actually get it within a few never realy know in italy though =) that's great to hear how happy your husband is with it though!

I love that you've moved around - a lot of people don't understand that! and now, for the first time in my life, I feel like italy is really home for me. the concept of home has always been linked to where my family is and I feel like I have really finally found my niche here - plus my husband and our very furry children are all here =) but it doesn't mean that I don't miss california very much!!!

that is a really long time! how is he doing? and have you guys always lived in the sacramento area? I really hope that you guys are able to some how get coverage for the CGMS...I should be getting mine within the next month and am so excited! I really hope it makes as much of a difference as I've heard.

that's crazy that you have friends from padova! what are they doing in sacramento? and definitely visit italy if you guys ever have a chance - it is very, very different in every sense of the word! and I haven't found any organizations that are even somewhat similar to what you see in the U.S. - diabetes is much more hidden here and seen as a problem, not as something to bring a group of people together.

I really do miss the Davis farmer's market! it was one of my favorite places to go on saturday mornings....I'm so excited to get the CGMS and am SO happy to hear positive reactions to it! how long has your husband had diabetes? and does he go to the UCDMC for care?
