BACKGROUND The value of self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) for persons with type 2 diabetes who do not use insulin remains controversial. This observational study compares the likelihood of medication adherence and change in glycated hemoglobin (A1C) for non-insulin-using patients using SMBG versus those not using SMBG. The study also assessed the(More)
It is generally accepted that buffers, in Internet routers, should be much smaller than the currently deployed bandwidth-delay product rule. However, as yet, there is no consensus on the optimal buffer-sizing strategy. Our focus will be on the performance, with respect to sizing buffers, of transport protocols that use queuing delay and packet loss as their(More)
AIM To evaluate OneTouch® Verio™ test strip performance at hypoglycaemic blood glucose (BG) levels (<3.9 mmol/L [<70 mg/dL]) at seven clinical studies. METHODS Trained clinical staff performed duplicate capillary BG monitoring system tests on 700 individuals with type 1 and type 2 diabetes using blood from a single fingerstick lancing. BG reference values(More)
OBJECTIVE Digital medicine system (DMS) is a novel drug-device combination that objectively measures and reports medication ingestion. The DMS consists of medication embedded with an ingestible sensor (digital medicine), a wearable sensor, and software applications. This study evaluated usability of the DMS in adults with schizophrenia rated by both(More)

BACKGROUND Hypertension and type 2 diabetes mellitus are major modifiable risk factors for cardiac, cerebrovascular, and kidney diseases. Reasons for poor disease control include nonadherence, lack of patient engagement, and therapeutic inertia. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess the impact on clinic-measured blood pressure (BP) and glycated(More)
