How concerned are you about the accuracy of your blood glucose meter?

Poll dates: March 30 - April 6, 2011
Total Votes: 174

In March 2010, the FDA held a meeting to discuss accuracy in home glucose meters. Prior to this very public meeting, it's likely that most CWD families didn't give glucose meter accuracy much thought. Afterwards though, it's clear that many families have concerns about their meter.

You can read the presentations from the FDA public meeting about blood glucose meters, courtesy of the Diabetes Tecnhology Society. Be sure to see Ellen Ullman's presentation (PDF).

These results are very similar to last year's.
