This sticky biosensor could help you lose weight with a ketogenic diet or avoid a DUI

You may soon be able to buy a sticky patch that can help you improve your fitness by controlling your blood glucose, ketone, lactate, and alcohol levels with a small probe under your skin. Abbott Lingo is a series of consumer “biowearables” advertised on CES 2022, and will use technology originally developed to help people with diabetes manage their condition.

Abbott made his name with the FreeStyle Free – a continuous blood glucose monitor consisting of an adhesive patch that is placed on the arm, with a sensor located just under the skin. It measures glucose in the interstitial fluid between cells, reducing the need for finger prick tests. You can check your glucose level on your phone at any time and set custom alarms if it goes up or down too much.
