Diabetics can have a "fruity" odor to their breath that indicates high glucose levels, and chemists at the University of Pittsburgh say this biomarker alone can diagnose the disease.
Nanotechnology could remove the finger prick from the daily routine of people with diabetes with an injectable gel that monitors blood-sugar levels and automatically secretes insulin.
Scientists at Stanford are working on a vaccine to stop a type 1 diabetic's immune system from attacking the cells that make insulin.
Researchers hope to soon be able to test our breath for a wide range of "biomarkers" -- molecules that could indicate the presence of a particular disease.
Yet another study finds adverse effects of light at night, this time showing that the profound suppression of melatonin could lead to higher blood pressure, diabetes, and poor sleep.
WellDoc's says its DiabetesManager System is different than the rest because provides real-time feedback in response to input they're submitting.
Diabetes patients could one day check their glucose levels simply by shining a light into their skin.
University of Florida engineers have designed a tiny, inexpensive sensor using a semiconductor that amplifies minute signals to detect glucose levels, pH or alkalinity levels, and indicators of cancers.
First study of its kind finds that those who sleep less than six hours a night are three times as likely to develop the pre-diabetic condition IFG.
New research shows children with diabetes exhale higher levels of a chemical when their blood sugar is high, possibly leading to a noninvasive blood-sugar test.
