THERE IS A NEW TATTOO BEING DEVELOPED FOR DIABETICS THAT WILL TELL A PERSON WHEN THEIR BLOOD SUGAR IS TOO HIGH OR LOW.  SCIENTISTS AT MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AND THE TEXAS DIABETES INSTITUTE ARE WORKING ON A NEW TATTOO THAT WILL CHANGE COLOUR WHEN A PERSON'S BLOOD SUGAR DROPS OR RISES.  IT IS STILL A FEW YEARS AWAY BUT IT WILL BE ABLE TO ACTUALLY MONITOR A PATIENT'S BLOOD SUGAR.  

THIS TATTOO IS NOT GOING TO BE READILY AVAILABLE TO THE NAKED EYE.  A PATIENT WOULD USE A "MONITORING DEVICE" SUCH AS A BLACK LIGHT TO SEE THE COLOUR CHANGES.  THE TATTOO WOULD GO FROM YELLOW TO ORANGE TO PINK DEPENDING ON WHETHER A PATIENT'S BLOOD SUGAR IS HIGH OR LOW.  THIS ISN'T EXPECTED TO REPLACE A GLUCOSE METER, BUT IT WILL GIVE CONSTANT MONITORING AND IS NON INVASIVE.

REMEMBER THAT MOST FOOT SPECALISTS, INCLUDING FOOT DOCTORS, CHIROPODISTS AND PODIATRISTS AGREE THAT IF YOU HAVE DIABETES, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO BE UNDER THE CARE OF A FOOT SPECIALIST.
