i know that the Holy Grail [cure] is still a ways off, but i am hoping for a non-invasive blood-sugar test. i heard rumours of an IR device that reads blood sugar through the skin of the finger. Is that device available? If not, is it anywhere near available?

i was diagnosed with Type II diabetes about a year ago. i work with my fingertips, throwing pottery. i am wondering if frequent energy ups and downs are blood-sugar-related, but don't want to stab myself up to 10 times a day to find out. My physician says my 90-day average blood sugar is OK on 500 mg glucophage once per day.
