What are your plans regarding continuous glucose sensing?

Poll dates: September 29 - October 6, 2010
Total Votes: 196

A growing body of science shows that continuous glucose sensing can make an enormous difference in diabetes care. Accurate, easy-to-use, and affordable sensing will provide insight into blood sugar levels throughout the day and night and allow people with diabetes -- or parents of children with diabetes -- to make adjustments based on much better data than is available today.

Based on the results of this poll, just about one-third (32%) of CWD readers who responded to this poll report using a continuous glucose monitor, down slightly from the last time we ran this poll in September 2009.

This table shows how people have answered this question over the past years.
