New direction for monitoring Blood Glucose

A project log for Universal Glucometer

Did your test strips just get more expensive? Has the drug store run out of strips for YOUR meter? Like to be able to use any test strip?

New diabetes monitor project Meter to Monitor Ketoacidosis Via Breath

I'm continuing to look at and develop less expensive, open source and open hardware, methods to monitor blood glucose levels in type 1 diabetics.  This is a very personal issue for me and I continue to look for methods to help type 1 diabetics control blood sugar levels.

The ideal, of course, would be a non-invasive method that does not use consumables (test strips, etc.).

Currently I'm looking at measuring ketone levels, as an indirect method of looking at blood glucose levels, through analysis of acetone present in exhaled breath.  This is a promising method that many researchers have been evaluating.
