1 doctor agrees
In brief: Depends on the meter
There are all sorts of ways and machines to check blood sugar.
Unfortunately they all still require blood. But they can attach to iphones, upload to the internet or even the cloud, use sites other than the fingertips at times the blood sugar is not changing rapidly. Some can check ketones as well as sugar. Some can even provide output to pumps. When in doubt ask your provider and read the manual.
