    Diabetics may soon be able to check their blood sugar through their sweat, eliminating the need for needles and blood.
    Why not develop a device which can detect the variances in sweat patterns that occur when the body's glucose reaches critically low levels? The sweat meter will consist of at least three electrodes to be attached to the skin, which will provide a more accurate reading of the slight electrical current that will be sent through the surface of the skin and into the sweat glands.
