Diabetes patients of Type 1 and 2 diabetes need to regularly monitor and control their blood sugar levels. For glucose monitoring, diabetics can use: incumbent products which include electrochemical test strips and glucometers for point measurements. Increasingly continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) uses wearable less invasive devices. For insulin delivery, injection devices such as insulin pens and auto-injectors, as well as emerging insulin pumps, are used to automate dose recommendation or even delivery.
