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

Poll dates: March 7 - 14, 2018
Total Votes: 30

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.

We also ran this poll in 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017.

You can learn more at the Surveillance Program of the Diabetes Technology Society. Be sure to see Ellen Ullman's presentation (PDF).
