Science Channel: "Deconstructed" looks at glucometers

Episode 11, segment 3, took apart a (metric-calibrated) Bayer Breeze and lancet device to explain how they work. The segment was on 9PM Eastern time today and will repeat at the following (Eastern time):

Dec 02, 11:00 pm
Dec 03, 4:00 pm
Dec 04, 4:00 am
Dec 07, 3:00 pm
Dec 16, 9:30 pm and 11:30 pm
Dec 17, 4:30 pm
Dec 18, 4:30 am
Dec 21, 3:30 pm

I hope they will let us (the various diabetes communities) know if and when the segment becomes available online (or for purchase)

Thanks! Just told Tivo. :slight_smile:

i’m glad i saw this post before i’d missed all of the episodes. i will definitely put this as something to watch!

Cool to watch. The only part that bugged me was their explanation of why we have to test our blood sugar. Don’t recall the exact wording, but I thought it was kind of wonky.

IIRC, it was “general information” and something nebulous about “taking action”… the biggest thing was that for us, the number is usually too high.
