What are your plans regarding continuous glucose sensing?

Poll dates: February 18 - 25, 2007
Total Votes: 430

Continuous glucose sensing has the potential to 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, more than half of CWD readers are either waiting for now (16%) or can't afford the sensors without insurance (42%). A small number -- 7% -- report using one of the available sensors. 12% say they are waiting for the Abbott Diabetes Care Navigator system. Very few report being uninterested in continuous sensing (just 5%).

We last ran this poll in July 2006.
