Is there any way to check blood sugar without sticking finger?
check blood sugar without sticking

yes having blood tests with the big needle in your arm. but that is all. i dont' know if they have anything otu there yet for something else i doubt it

Stick the outside of your upper arm near your shoulder.. It doesn't hurt. Your arm has less nerve endings.

No. Not accurately.
There are some some devices out there that strap to the wrist or fingers that claim to give approximations of blood sugar levels, but the reading is much too inaccurate to ensure good blood sugar control.

However, there are blood glucose meters that will let you sample blood from sticking other body locations (such as arms). It is said not to hurt as much, requiring a very small sample to read blood sugar.

They make continuous glucose monitors now that are a subcutaneous devise that measure glucose levels but even these require calibrations with finger sticks.

No, sticking a finger is no big deal, make sure your lanclet is shap and clean.

^ They are working on it, but for now get yourself a meter that allows you to test on various parts of your arms and legs, they don't hurt for the most part..

They are working on a watch type monitor that checks your blood through your sweat and one that does a reading from your eye. I guess we will have to wait, for now
it's the old fashioned way.

The site below will give you more information on various meters. Good luck, I hope this helps.
