The goal of this clinical research study is to learn about a new minimally invasive glucose monitoring device called Fluorescence Affinity Sensor (FAS). In this study, the FAS will be used to determine its effectiveness for glucose monitoring. Researchers want to find out how the device performs at two different body sites (forearm and abdomen) over 4 hours. The safety and comfort level of the device will also be studied.
The FAS glucose monitoring system is a minimally invasive glucose monitoring device which is not yet approved by the FDA. The FAS system will be used in this study to monitor glucose levels during a glucose tolerance test (GTT) performed in Dr.Orzeck practice. The FAS measures glucose levels in skin tissue of the forearm or the abdomen at a depth of less than 1 mm by inserting a small needle-like device. During the 4-hour GTT, the needle-like FAS is left in the skin tissue. The FAS performance has indicated in prior experiments that it is more stable than competitive commercial glucose-sensing devices. Due to its unique design, its glucose response is more accurate, and less affected by certain drugs (such as pain medicine).

Self evaluation of whole blood glucose levels outside the clinical laboratory. A digital or battery-operated reflectance meter may be used. It has wide application in controlling unstable insulin-dependent diabetes.
A glucoside-derived SODIUM-GLUCOSE TRANSPORTER 2 inhibitor that stimulates urinary excretion of glucose by suppressing renal glucose reabsorption. It is used to manage BLOOD GLUCOSE levels in patients with TYPE 2 DIABETES.
The state of PREGNANCY in women with DIABETES MELLITUS. This does not include either symptomatic diabetes or GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE induced by pregnancy (DIABETES, GESTATIONAL) which resolves at the end of pregnancy.
A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
A pathological state in which BLOOD GLUCOSE level is less than approximately 140 mg/100 ml of PLASMA at fasting, and above approximately 200 mg/100 ml plasma at 30-, 60-, or 90-minute during a GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST. This condition is seen frequently in DIABETES MELLITUS, but also occurs with other diseases and MALNUTRITION.
