This study was done to find out how accurate the Navigator is in children.  It was also done to see if use of the Navigator could improve blood sugar control and help prevent low blood sugar events.  Thirty subjects age 8 to 17 years using insulin pump therapy and thirty subjects using Lantus/multiple daily injection (MDI) therapy were enrolled.  This study has three basic parts: Use of the Navigator at home for one week without being able to see the blood sugar readings; a 24-hour admission to a research unit of the hospital to find out how well the Navigator measures the blood sugar; and then 3 months' use of the Navigator at home as an aid to diabetes care.  At the end of 3 months, the children were given the option to continue use of the Navigator for an additional 3 months or until the end of the study.
