Is reheated pasta less fattening?
So, apparently pasta that has been cooked then cooled turns more into a resistant starch, resembling fibre, but that effect continues even after being reheated. So day old microwaved pasta from the fridge is healthier.

Fujitsu to Launch Mobile Service for Diabetic Patients -- Tech-On!
Almost there. Dedicated cable is dumb, but understandable since the bluetooth health device profile stuff is not ideal, and this is marketed towards elderly diabetics, who are likely to already use these "Rakuraku" simplified feature phones and need something simple. Now if that bloodless glucose monitoring sensor technology finally comes together, and linked with a bluetooth radio, diabetics can avoid the hardest part about glucose monitoring; that stabbing the finger business to draw blood that really hurts.

BGStar and iBGStar designed with you to take charge of life with diabetes - BGStar®
Still have to stab yourself so not quite there yet, but definitely increasing the the usability and convenience of blood glucose monitoring for diabetics. Still, I would prefer the the non-invasive IR laser blood glucose measurement device that's currently under development.

Technology Review: Power from Glucose
A potentially interesting solution to power implants and other medical devices, such as pacemakers and insulin pumps. But the interesting long term goal is an auxiliary excess glucose/calorie consume in the body, to overtake the normal metabolism. Basically, the idea would be to implant the biofuelcell in obese people (or people with oddball metabolism or excess glucose in their bodies such as diabetics), run the biofuelcell to reduce blood glucose levels. In an obese person, the body would react like it's being overly exercised (or starved?) and burn fat to compensate. One of the long term problems with obesity is the difficulty to both increase caloric expenditure while reducing food intake. This would neatly bypass the expenditure problem by having a secondary calorie consumer, since realistically, nobody is reliably capable of reducing their food consumption. But I wonder about the caloric starvation effect on hunger...

"Prescription" Tattoos Could Monitor Blood-Glucose Levels in Diabetics | Ecouterre
Nice non-invasive alternative to pricking your finger all day to get blood glucose readings. You could potentially compact the necessary reader equipment to a watch sized device, and put the invisible tattoo on both wrists.
