use of microwave

Diabetics may soon forget punctures through the use of microwave

The development of new medical treatments to control disease is a pending task, since many of them remain the same for decades, with few updates, but without a radical change in how to measure and evaluate the progress of the disease as well as its possible disappearance.

Such is the case of people with diabetes, who must draw blood frequently to monitor their glucose levels, a procedure that can be done using a glucometer classic, through patches, or other mechanisms available in hospitals, but in all these cases it is invasive methods that draw blood by pricking. This could end up in a few years, as it has begun testing a system based on microwave method would eliminate the need to draw blood periodically.
