  Purpose

The purpose of this study was to test the performance of an investigational Bayer Blood Glucose (BG) meter and five additional Blood Glucose Monitoring Systems (BGMSs). The goal was to obtain glucose samples from subjects with diabetes across the meter operating ranges. A capillary sample was collected from each subject at 3 different times during the visit to obtain natural capillary blood samples with a range of glucose concentrations. Some blood samples were glycolyzed to lower the glucose concentration levels and glucose solution was added to other samples to raise glucose concentration levels. All meter BG results were compared with plasma results obtained with a reference laboratory glucose method (YSI Glucose Analyzer). All lancings and testing were performed by study staff.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • MAD Mean Absolute Value of the Difference Between Blood Glucose Meter (BGMS) Results and Corresponding YSI Blood Glucose (BG) Results in the Low BG Range(<70 mg/dL) [ Time Frame: 6 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Using samples with BG < 70 mg/dL, the Mean Absolute Value of the Differences Between BGM system readings and the YSI laboratory reference values were compared. MAD was calculated from the sum of all /(BG meter)-(BG reference)/ assessments, divided by the number of assessments. Each evaluable sample was tested on all 6 BGMS, thus the same number of BG test results was analyzed for each BGMS intervention. Lower MAD value indicates smaller difference between meter value and the reference value. Higher MAD value indicates larger difference between meter value and the reference value.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • MAD Mean Absolute Value of the Difference Between Blood Glucose Meter (BGMS) Results and Corresponding YSI Blood Glucose (BG) Results in the BG Range 70 to 180 mg/dL [ Time Frame: 6 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Using samples with BG 70 mg/dL to 180 mg/dL, the Mean Absolute Value of the Differences Between BGM system readings and the YSI laboratory reference values were compared. MAD was calculated from the sum of all/(BG meter)-(BG reference)/ assessments, divided by the number of assessments. Each evaluable sample was tested on all 6 BGMS, thus the same number of BG test results was analyzed for each BGMS intervention. Lower MAD value indicates smaller difference between meter value and the reference value. Higher MAD value indicates larger difference between meter value and the reference value.

  • MAD Mean Absolute Value of the Difference Between Blood Glucose Meter (BGMS) Results and Corresponding YSI Blood Glucose (BG) Results in the BG Range >180 mg/dL [ Time Frame: 6 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Using samples with BG >180 mg/dL, the Mean Absolute Value of the Differences Between BGM system readings and the YSI laboratory reference values was compared. MAD was calculated from the sum of all /(BG meter)-(BG reference)/ assessments, divided by the number of assessments. Each evaluable sample was tested on all 6 BGMS, thus the same number of BG test results was analyzed for each BGMS intervention. Lower MAD value indicates smaller difference between meter value and the reference value. Higher MAD value indicates larger difference between meter value and the reference value.

  • Standard Deviations of BGMS Differences (Between BGM Meter Readings and the YSI Laboratory Reference Values Across the BG Range of All Evaluable Samples 21 mg/dL to 496 mg/dL) [ Time Frame: 6 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Variability of each meter system was determined by calculating the Standard Deviation derived from each meter's differences between Blood Glucose Meter (BGMS)results and corresponding YSI Blood Glucose (BG) results.

  • Number of Subject Responses 'Strongly Agree' 'Agree' or 'Neutral' With Questionnaire Statements [ Time Frame: 1 hour ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Subjects responded to statements about meter accuracy and diabetes management. Subject responses: 'Strongly Agree' 'Agree' 'Neutral' 'Disagree' or 'Strongly Disagree'or No Response. □1ACCURACY HELPS 1A-with my ability to talk with my HCP. 1B-my satisfaction with my self monitoring of diabetes. 1C-with my ability to manage my diabetes. 1D-prevent low BG. 1E-understand how food/exercise affects low BG. □2 I WOULD USE ONLY the meter and strips my insurance company pays for, even if a more accurate meter was available. □3 I USE MY CURRENT METER BECAUSE 3A-my HCP gave it to me. 3B-my insurance company covers the strips. 3C-I think it is the most accurate meter. □4 I WOULD SWITCH meters for a more accurate meter. □5BEING ABLE TO APPLY MORE BLOOD IS IMPORTANT 5A-as I have wasted test strips by not having enough blood to fill the strip 5B-as this would save test strips 5C-I would switch to a meter with this feature

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Intended BGM Users
Subjects were assigned to subgroups according to their initial glucose levels. SUBGROUP 1 goal: safely decrease subject glucose levels during the visit. SUBGROUP 2 goal: safely raise subject glucose levels. Also, blood samples were modified to obtain glucose concentrations across the needed glucose ranges while maintaining subject safety. Staff tested the blood samples using the 6 Blood Glucose Monitoring Systems.
