In this paper, we conceptually describe a new microsystem which we are developing for continuous blood glucose monitoring. The microsystem is intended to be implanted underneath the skin and measure the blood glucose concentration every few minutes. The power to the implant along with data transmission will use a transcutaneous wireless link. The microsystem uses a novel electrochemical glucose sensor which does not require oxygen for reaction with glucose, eliminating the oxygen limitation and the hydrogen peroxide production problems
