Diabetes Australia Launches New Position Statement on Glucose Self-Monitoring

Date posted: 20 September 2017

Diabetes Australia launched a new position statement on 29 August to help make it easier for Australians living with diabetes to self-monitor their glucose levels and better self-manage their condition. The position statement titled Glucose self-monitoring in adults with type 1 or type 2 diabetes is designed to give people the information they need to decide the type of glucose monitoring that is right for them. It explains the technologies available, the pros and cons and the evidence for each.

Glucose self-monitoring is one of the most important parts of diabetes management. It is also an area that is rapidly changing and can be confusing for people with diabetes.

The position statement was launched at the Australia Diabetes Society / Australian Diabetes Educators Association Annual Scientific Meeting in Perth.

Diabetes Australia believes that every person with diabetes should be able to access and use technologies that help them manage their diabetes to the best of their ability, to protect their health and quality of life.
