Managing Diabetes in a 'Flash' –Dr Sara Boucher
Self-monitoring of blood glucose via intermittent finger prick capillary glucose measurements is a fundamental component of type 1 diabetes care. Although frequent blood glucose checking is associated with better short- and long-term health outcomes, it is quite burdensome for patients.
Our research team investigated the effectiveness of a less invasive glucose monitoring approach, flash glucose monitoring, for improving important clinical, psychological, and behavioural outcomes among adolescents and young adults with high-risk glycaemic control.
This presentation will report findings from Managing Diabetes in a 'Flash, a multisite 6-month randomized controlled trial.
