Continuous blood glucose monitoring offers many benefits over traditional finger stick monitoring. We asked our readers to indicate what single feature they felt was most important. Intensive management tool was the first choice by a wide margin, followed by hypoglycemic alarm and anytime readings essentially tied for second.
Regardless of what feature you feel is most important, continuous glucose monitoring has the potential to improve diabetes management by providing significantly more data than is possible today, and by providing alarms when blood sugars go too low or too high.
Note: After reviewing the voting log, over 500 votes for hyperglycemic alarm were discarded because they came from the same person in the span of just a few minutes, indicating a potential problem with their computer or ballot stuffing. The voting log is reviewed each week to insure the integrity of the voting.
