A Memphis doctor is once again leading the way in cutting edge technology.
Dr. Kashif Latif is widely known as one of the top endocrinologists in the country. And last Friday, he brought a new way to monitor the blood sugar of diabetics to the Mid-South for the first time.
All diabetics have to keep track of their blood glucose levels.
Too high, and it poisons the blood. Too low, and the body’s systems crash.
Both scenarios can be deadly. And checking blood glucose with the traditional finger stick can be a pain.
Beyond the now old-fashioned finger sticks, continuous glucose monitors are available to keep up with blood sugar levels in real time.
