BACKGROUND Patients consider multiple parameters in adjusting prandial insulin doses for optimal glycemic control. Difficulties in calculations can lead to incorrect doses or induce patients to administer fixed doses, rely on empirical estimates, or skip boluses. METHOD A multicenter study was conducted with 205 diabetes subjects who were on multiple(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose of the study was to evaluate the performance and usability of the FreeStyle(®) Libre™ Flash glucose monitoring system (Abbott Diabetes Care, Alameda, CA) for interstitial glucose results compared with capillary blood glucose results. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy-two study participants with type 1 or type 2 diabetes were enrolled(More)
Horseradish peroxidase catalyzed polymerizations of amphiphilic derivatives of dand /-isomers of tyrosine have been carried out in micellar solutions. The rate of polymerization has been found to be maximum at a pH of 6.1-6.2 and showed a second-order dependence on the monomer concentration. This enzyme shows stereospecificity towards the d-isomer compared(More)
BACKGROUND a new strip, designed to enhance the ease of use and minimize interference of non-glucose sugars, has been developed to replace the current FreeStyle (Abbott Diabetes Care, Alameda, CA) blood glucose test strip. We evaluated the performance of this new strip. METHODS laboratory evaluation included precision, linearity, dynamic range, effects of(More)
BACKGROUND Abbott Diabetes Care introduced the FreeStyle Lite blood glucose monitoring system, which simplifies the management of diabetes. The FreeStyle Lite system relies on FreeStyle technology but eliminates the need for coding the meter for individual strip lots. The meter is precoded for the FreeStyle Lite strips. FreeStyle systems use coulometry(More)
BACKGROUND A new version of international standard (ISO 15197) and CLSI Guideline (POCT12) with more stringent accuracy criteria are near publication. We evaluated the glucose test performance of the FreeStyle Precision Pro system, a new blood glucose monitoring system (BGMS) designed to enhance accuracy for point-of-care testing (POCT).
