This #Tattoo Can Show Your #BloodSugar

SkinTattooOf course the super geniuses from Harvard and MIT collaborated to spitball  a tattoo that could change the game of managing the most prominent conditions…and then some. Meet the DermalAbyss ink, the guts and glory of the smart tattoo that could notify levels of blood sugar, pH, and sodium. Why does it matter? Well for one thing, over 21 million people are living with diabetes, more than 9 million more have it and don’t know it, and about 150 million people in the US will have it in your lifetime. Figure that, Abacus. Now for the beauty of sodium, it’s a great way to quickly ascertain kidney health. Who’s at risk for kidney disease? About 46 million people in the US. Last but not least, the pH indicator in the smart tattoo can hint at a lot of things we never realized. First of all, cancer hates an alkaline environment. Know what else causes an acidic environment? High blood sugar. They don’t call it ketoACIDOSIS for scoring high points in Scrabble. So this fascinating detective feat of body art is still for research purposes only. The only beneficiaries of the DermalAbyss color-changing marvels are patches of swine skin. So effectively, it’s just dead skin. Perhaps one day we’ll see the poetry in-motion on some live skin.
