This 3-month pilot study was conducted to assess the feasibility of using PCs in the home for computer-based data acquisition and transmission in a larger 12-month study. Fifteen subjects with T1DM (age range 7.3-17.9 years) were provided with a GW2B and a OneTouch Ultra® meter along with a personal computer and software for downloading glycemic data for each device. The PC was also used weekly to complete a questionnaire regarding hypoglycemia and problems with using the GW2B. Patients were able to view Ultra and GW2B data at any time on the PC. Each week, the data were uploaded to the study coordinating center and made available to the clinical centers on a secure website. Therapeutic changes were based on the downloads, hypoglycemia questionnaires, and telephone contacts with clinical centers. Quality of life, diabetes self-management behaviors and satisfaction with GW2B use were measured periodically.
