Thermometer to save diabetics losing limbs
from The Daily Mail
A new hand-held device could greatly reduce the number of ulcers and limb amputations in people with diabetes. The device provides early warning of complications which, if left untreated, can lead to the limb becoming so damaged it needs to be removed. Around 100 Britons a week undergo an amputation as a result of diabetes. The disease can cause significant damage to the nerves and blood vessels - possibly because they are exposed to such high levels of blood sugar.
