Background: In 2 previous clinical trials, fingertip capillary blood samples were evaluated using prespecified blood glucose monitoring systems (BGMSs) and a reference YSI glucose analyzer. In post hoc analyses, hypothetical insulin doses were calculated using these blood glucose measurements; dosing errors were compared for each trial. Method: For each blood glucose measurement, premeal bolus insulin dosing was determined for a hypothetical person, assuming a 60-g carbohydrate meal and 100-mg… Expand
A comparison of bolus insulin dose errors based on results of a clinical trial of five blood glucose monitoring systems.
The CONTOUR®PLUS BGMS was associated with a statistically significantly smaller model-estimated median bolus insulin dose-error and dosing error range, compared with the other BGMSs. Expand
Laboratory Evaluation of Linearity, Repeatability, and Hematocrit Interference With an Internet-Enabled Blood Glucose Meter
The BGM met repeatability requirements but demonstrated a significant measurement bias in the low BG range, and failed the ISO15197:2015 criteria for hematocrit interference. Expand
User Performance Evaluation of Four Blood Glucose Monitoring Systems Applying ISO 15197:2013 Accuracy Criteria and Calculation of Insulin Dosing Errors
Data obtained in this study show that not all available SMBG systems complied with ISO 15197:2013 accuracy criteria when measurements were performed by lay-users. Expand
Accuracy of five systems for self-monitoring of blood glucose in the hands of adult lay-users and professionals applying ISO 15197:2013 accuracy criteria and potential insulin dosing errors
Self-monitoring of blood glucose systems based on ISO 15197:2013 showed slight differences in the number of results within accuracy limits, which can result in insulin dosing errors and adversely affect glycemic control. Expand


Importance of Blood Glucose Meter and Carbohydrate Estimation Accuracy
Both BGM and carbohydrate estimation error contribute to insulin dosing inaccuracies, and the BGM with the best performance was associated with the most on-target insulin dosages. Expand
Significant Insulin Dose Errors May Occur if Blood Glucose Results are Obtained from Miscoded Meters
Blood glucose meter coding errors may result in significant insulin dosing errors and patients should be instructed to code their meters correctly or be advised to use an autocoded meter that showed superior performance over manually, correctly coded meters in this study. Expand
Accuracy Evaluation of Five Blood Glucose Monitoring Systems: The North American Comparator Trial
The EZ had the lowest MARD across the tested glucose ranges when compared with four other BGMSs when all samples were analyzed as well as when natural samples only were analyzed. Expand
Clinical Implications and Economic Impact of Accuracy Differences among Commercially Available Blood Glucose Monitoring Systems
An analysis shows that error patterns over the operating range of BGM meter may lead to relevant clinical and economic outcome differences that may not be reflected in a common accuracy metric or standard. Expand
Predicted Blood Glucose from Insulin Administration Based on Values from Miscoded Glucose Meters
Improperly coded blood glucose meters present the potential for insulin dose errors and resultant clinically significant hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia, and patients should be instructed and periodically reinstructed in the proper use ofBlood glucose meters, particularly for meters that require coding.

Accuracy evaluation of contour next compared with five blood glucose monitoring systems across a wide range of blood glucose concentrations occurring in a clinical research setting.
This study evaluated the accuracy of Contour(®) Next (CN) compared with five blood glucose monitoring systems (BGMSs) across a wide range of clinically occurring blood glucose levels and demonstrated the lowest mean deviation from the reference value (by MAD and MARD) across multiple glucose ranges.

Quality specifications for glucose meters: assessment by simulation modeling of errors in insulin dose.
The quantitative effect of meter error on the ability to identify the insulin dose appropriate for the true glucose concentration is characterized and the effects of such dosage errors on blood glucose and on patient outcomes require study. Expand
Impact of Blood Glucose Self-Monitoring Errors on Glucose Variability, Risk for Hypoglycemia, and Average Glucose Control in Type 1 Diabetes: An In Silico Study
A number of parameters of glycemic control deteriorated substantially with the increase of permitted SMBG errors, as revealed by a series of computer simulations. Expand
The impact of non-model-related variability on blood glucose prediction.
It is shown how blood glucose prediction is severely affected by the inaccuracy in the input variables, which can be reduced through better patient education. Expand
Testing versus guessing blood glucose values: impact on self-care behaviors in type 2 diabetes
Self-monitoring of blood glucose is an important component of diabetes self-management and testing rather than guessing blood glucose values is important to obtain accurate results and inform people with type 2 diabetes to make effective, appropriate diabetes management decisions. Expand
