Insulin therapy requires monitoring and frequent review of glucose levels to optimize dosing. Effective presentation and data analysis are essential. We examined HbA1c changes using the OneTouch(R) UltraSmart(R) System (Test Group), an integrated glucose meter and electronic logbook, compared to established meters with paper logbooks (Control Group).
