As a T2 diabetic, I’m very skeptical this will ever happen.

The only true test for sugar levels is a finger stick. I’m currently using the FreeStyle Libre 3 and it registers higher than a finger stick. While it’s good to see how my levels rise and fall throughout the day, it’s not accurate. Neither is Dexcom, both of which require a needle into the skin.

If, IF Apple ever does it, it won’t be reliable or accurate.

Your points are valid!

Yes, I wish Apple would not fall for these stories about tech that is nowhere near ready. People get interested, nothing happens for years,and those same people get browned off with the whole idea,and don't care when and if the same tech comes to fruition. Also of course, all new tech seems to come with a subscription nowadays !
