Adult diabetics benefit from device, study says
Wall Street Journal (subscription required), September 9, 2008
Adults with Type 1 diabetes can gain better control over their disease by using a device that continually monitors blood-sugar levels, according to a new study. The "continuous glucose monitoring" systems provide a steady stream of data that allows patients to adjust their insulin injections as needed. The systems are attached to a small sensor inserted just beneath the skin, and they also sound an alarm if blood sugar rises or falls to dangerous levels.
