6. Summary and future direction

The glucose sensing industry is primarily driven by the diabetes epidemic. The number of people diagnosed with diabetes in UK has more than doubled from 1.4 m in 1996 to 2.9 m in 2011, and is expected to cross 5 m by 2025 (Diabetes UK, 2013). Similarly, diabetes prevalence worldwide of 366 m in 2011 is expected to increase to 552 m by 2030 [287289]. The long-standing goal for reliable continuous glucose monitoring is still unmet, the finger-prick home glucose monitoring devices are indicated as acceptable with an error margin of ±20%, and laboratory testing is still the gold standard for diabetes diagnosis. Nanomaterials have an important role in making glucose sensing technologies cross the frontiers of traditional ...
