Accuracy of Blood Glucose Meters?
We estimate, that from over 550 Blood Glucose Meters listed on our website, less than 12% have ever undertaken a clinical validation for accuracy.
The most important question, and one that is critical to your health and the treatment of diabetes, should be “is the Blood Glucose Meter in fact accurate”.
The Analysis we have undertaken of all Blood Glucose Meters currently available in the market place would indicate that this is not the case and the industry is out of control.
According to the International Diabetes Federation, in 2017, 425 million people (20-79 years) worldwide (over 9% of the global population) are living with diabetes in 2017 and another 352 million people were at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
It has been estimated that one person dies from diabetes every six seconds and that 4 million deaths were caused by diabetes in 2017.
Worryingly, the epidemic shows no signs of relenting, with the number of people living with diabetes expected to reach 629 million by 2045.
