This is a prospective, multi-center, non-randomized, single-arm study intended to characterize the safety of self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) when used to manage diabetes in pediatric patients.
Condition or disease
Approximately 400 subjects aged 4-17 years and older with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, who require daily blood glucose monitoring to manage their diabetes will be enrolled in the study. Subjects and/or their caregivers will utilize capillary SMBG for managing diabetes for 6 months. Subjects and/or their caregivers will maintain a diary/log book of Adverse Events experienced during the duration of the study. Assessment of Adverse Events will occur via self reporting at each monthly visit and/or phone call.
Safety of the SMBG devices. The safety of self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) when used to manage diabetes in a pediatric patient population will be characterized: Serious Adverse events [ Time Frame: six months ]
Rate of Serious Adverse events associated with Hypoglycemia and Hyper glycaemia will be determined. (e.g severe hypoglycemic occurrences requiring health care professional (HCP) intervention including EMT assistance, hospital/clinic visit and/or hospitalization and moderate hypoglycemia in which the patient required the assistance of another person [e.g. as a result of confusion, coma, or seizure] during the study.
