Diabetics may soon have an alternative to one of the most annoying parts of their lives- pricking a finger several times a day to check blood sugar levels.

[SUPER=04-File Tape;]


A new wristwatch device has proven just as effective as blood tests at monitoring glucose levels.
The Glucowatch automatically checks glucose levels every 20 minutes and sounds an alert if the reading is too high or too low.
It would not completely eliminate the need for pin pricks.
A patient would still have to calibrate the device by performing a traditional finger stick test once a day.
The Glucowatch still needs federal approval, but it could be on the market in the next year.
It's expected to sell for about 300 dollars.

He first wrote Maynard after seeing a story she had written for the New York Times.
The relationship lasted less than a year... and Maynard put the letters up for sale hoping to raise 80-thousand dollars at the auction to help support her children.
Norton placed his bid in advance... and in a written statement he said that he planned to return the letters to Salinger or do whatever else the writer wants done with them.
