This randomized trial was conducted to assess whether use of the GlucoWatch G2 Biographer (GW2B) with standard glucose monitoring (SGM) lowers HbA1c and the frequency of hypoglycemia in comparison to use of standard blood glucose monitoring alone. Two hundred subjects aged 7 to 18 years were randomized to SGM or SGM plus GW2B use for 6 months. Other than use of the GW2B sensor, both groups were managed as similarly as possible. Subjects in both groups were provided with a PC to download sensor and meter results, to review glucose data as an aid in self-management, and to complete a questionnaire each week.
