Detailed Description:
The purpose of this study is to find the impact of continuous blood glucose sensors use in the classroom/school environment. Recent technological advancements in diabetes management have resulted in increased use of devices during class/school. Although many studies have examined the quality of life and the impact on the family and subject of these devices, to our knowledge this is the first study that will examine the impact of the continuous glucose monitor during class/school. To our knowledge, this is first study to involve the teachers. The results of this study is particularly important since the future of diabetes therapy will be to use continuous glucose monitors and insulin pumps to develop a closed loop system of insulin therapy or "artificial pancreas."
