    Breathe to Detect High Blood Glucose


    The quest to non-invasive blood glucose level monitoring is on. Two professors from Western New England University have created a small device that measures acetone on the patient’s breath. As acetone level has been linked to blood glucose level, it should be able to help patient know if they require insulin without finger-stick testing.

    Dr. Ronny Priefer and Dr. Michael Rust presented their findings end of 2016 at the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) annual meeting. An initial blind study of 50 people showed a correlation between blood glucose levels and breath acetone. The two professors are expecting a product launch by the end of 2017.
