Systems are disclosed which utilize implanted glucose sensitive living cells to monitor blood glucose levels. The implanted cells produce a detectable electrical or optical signal in response to changes in glucose concentration in surrounding tissue. The signal is then detected and interpreted to give a reading indicative of blood glucose levels. Capsules containing glucose sensitive cells and electrodes for detecting electrical activity are also disclosed. Methods of monitoring blood glucose are also described utilizing the systems and capsules disclosed.
