Not My Idea- One Way Long-Term CGM Sensors Might Work

Dexcom years ago tried to develop a sensor that would be implanted for six months or a year- a long term sensor- which is why their sensors- the generation before the Dexcom 7, the Dexcom STS- was called Dexcom Short Term Sensors.

So obviously, making and marketing the Dexcom LTS hasn't gone much of anywhere so far.

But people are still working on developing long term sensors and playing with ideas that might make them work. One that I just read that seems sort of far out to me is the idea of using things to cause local growth of blood and lymph vessels near the placement of the sensor!
