Tattoo to monitor diabetes . I don’t know why I didn’t write about this when the story broke. I talked about it offline….

Texas A&M & Penn State engineers have come up with a plastic tattoo that would display blood glucose levels. This would alleviate the need to test with a stick to the fingers. I would love to be one of the first in line to try this out.

I’ve had to start testing myself again, and I hate it. I would love to have a tattoo that would show how low or high I was. I would also think it’s cheaper than buying 50 test strips from $20-60 a month.
