Sydney: Australian experts have come up with a way to check blood sugar without having to draw blood, but with the patient’s saliva to check blood sugar levels.
According to international media reports, experts at the University of Newcastle in Australia have discovered a method that will now require saliva instead of the patient’s blood for a sugar test.
Australian experts have developed a strip on which the amount of glucose in the blood can be determined if a person’s saliva is poured.
Experts say that when the patient puts the bandage on his tongue, he will see the result of diabetes on the smartphone app.
“The strip contains an enzyme that can be used to easily check glucose levels,” said Professor Dastur of the Unique Discovery Team.
The sugar-checking machine also contains similar compounds, he said. According to the professor, the electronic material in the strip contains ink, with the help of which more strips can be easily made.
“Not only sugar but also corona tests, allergies, hormones and cancer can be diagnosed through this strip,” the professor said.
He said that the strip is still being tested and after clinical trials and approval, it will be mass-produced for approval by the WHO.
