Diabetes patches use the sensors, that are designed to wear for 14 days. These are intended to replace blood glucose meters while giving the blood sugar level of people who are dealing with diabetes just like continuous glucose monitoring.


How do Diabetes Patches Work?


The first step to use diabetes patches is you have to fix the sensor to the back of your upper arm. Then the sensor is pressed onto a disposable applicator and the applicator is pushed down to apply the tiny sterile sensor to your upper arm. The sensor goes just under your skin and is connected.


The sensor monitors the glucose of your internal fluid between your cells rather than blood glucose levels. This sensor is also connected to the transmitter that wirelessly transmits results to a special scanner or an app on your smartphone. You have to hold the scanner, or your smartphone, near to the sensor for around 3 seconds.

  • It is discrete and appropriate.


  • Diabetes patches takes your blood sugar readings every minute without ant intervention.
