PHOENIX & VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eternity Healthcare Inc. (OTCBB:ETAH), a medical device and diagnostic company specializing in diabetes management, announced today that they are in development of a noninvasive sugar monitoring device using saliva instead of blood.

Using two parameters of diabetes physiological changes, the device will provide more accurate results for diabetics and their blood sugar levels.
