If the GlucoWatch is approved by the FDA, are you interested in using it?

Poll dates: November 7 - 14, 1999
Total Votes: 1,186

The GlucoWatch is an important innovation in blood glucose monitoring, providing an easy-to-use, non-invasive way to measure blood sugars. Even more important, the GlucoWatch will alarm when blood sugars are either too low or too high. For the first time, people with diabetes will have a tool to help them identify -- before hand -- when their blood sugars are too low.

All of this will be true, if the FDA approves the GlucoWatch at its meeting on December 6, 1999. From our poll, 91% of you want the GlucoWatch, either for your child, yourself, or someone else. Children with Diabetes will be represented at the FDA meeting, and will present this data to demonstrate how important this product is and why it must be approved.
