Editor’s comment...

W e use them once then throw

them away... but spare a

thought for your blood test

sensors. They may be small, but they

are mighty. Not only can do those of us

with diabetes use them several times

a day as a matter of routine, but we

trust what they tell us. In our feature

we look at some of the science behind how these strips

(sensors) work. It also explains why those little strips –

while being relatively expensive – are worth every penny.

Some of them even use gold as a conductor to analyse our

blood, so you might have some bling in your blood test

kit! Plus lots of food news and an expose on watercress!
