Fantasy Diabetes Device

I’ve always been interested in the latest technologies and how soon I can get my hands on it. As soon as I found out about myself having diabetes I immediately began looking into the best devices out there to make this easier to deal with. I was already dreaming of fantasy devices and to my surprise, some of the devices I was imagining actually did exist. I remember thinking about how awesome it would be to know what your blood sugar is in real-time. I figured that was far into the future, until my exposure to the DOC quickly showed me that things are moving faster than I once thought!

I’m still very, very new to diabetes. Although I’m excited to be able to have a cool pump with some cutting edge abilities and a CGM (or both combined in one package?) I think I want to stay away from attached devices as long as possible since I know at some point I will have them and rely on them.

With that said I do have a fantasy device in mind that I would love to have today. Ever since I saw the movie Iron Man 2, I quickly took notice of a device he used in the movie that reminded me of a glucose testing device, but a lot simpler. In the movie, he was checking his blood toxicity instead of glucose. It was cool because there was no lancing device needed, just a quick press of the thumb and the results were virtually instant.


In my fantasy this device is instant and painless. I can use it as many times as I like with no risk for damage to my skin from multiple pricks and I can scroll through a menu that lets me check other things such as a1c, and LDL Cholesterol.

Hopefully I see this on the shelves soon!

I am participating in the third annual Diabetes Blog Week! I’ll be contributing by posting about pre-determined topics each day for a week. You can find more posts by going to the topic list and by searching Twitter hashtag #dblogweek.

    It’s funny. I know a lot of people despise the finger pricks, but my fingers are so calloused after 15 years I don’t even notice. It would be pretty cool to have superhero electronics though!

    Ps. Thanks for the comment and welcome to the community!

      Thanks for the welcome! Honestly I would love the simplicity of something that didn’t require any maintenance at all.

    • Hello, I was born in Govan, moved to Canada with my family when I was seven years old. As I grew older my father gave me the appreciation for good Scotch whisky. Over the years I have tried over forty different single malt whiskies. Laphroaig is the one that tells me this is the way good Scotch whisky should be. Keep up the good work. Bob Macleod
