Do you need testers?

I would be happy to test your device and compare the results to finger sticks and report back data.

Great explanation of the glucose renal threshold.

I actually don’t have diabetes, but don’t mind getting my fingers pricked.

That’s the attitude Robert Lancer! However it is not possible. Allow me to explain, There is something called the glucose renal threshold, which basically means our body starts to expel glucose in urine once its level has reached certain level in blood. Once it starts expelling it in urine there is a direct correlation between the amount o glucose in urine and that in blood.

The problem is that healthy metabolisms (like yours) are able to utilize the glucose so efficiently it never reaches the renal threshold and theres is no glucose in urine.

In fact, glucose in urine can also serve as an early diabetes detection system, since glucose is not supposed to be there.

Ah makes sense! Early detection of diabetes is a much needed application.

And not only that, pricking is very hard, we do it at the lab all the time for calibration, and it’s very painful, you can’t even put your hands in your pockets after a couple days. Imagine the people that needs to measure several times a day
