Scientists Developed Patches Able to Check Blood Sugar Level by Analysing Sweat
A team of scientists from the Seoul National University, South Korea, developed a sensor that can monitor blood sugar level by analyzing sweaty skin.
The patch has three sensors. It is flexible and can move with the skin. Human sweat contains less sugar than blood and other chemicals, so the scientists needed to overcome a series of challenges to make the patch work.
Inventing the patch, the scientists were trying to overcome the need for painful blood collection. In their study, the researchers conclude: “The current system provides important new advances toward the painless and stress-free care for diabetes”.
