Blue Skying in Diabetes

Blue skying means sitting around with friends and sharing what-if ideas. Maybe it's a way to cure diabetes, or to make scattered blood sugar results mean something, or to prevent or treat retinopathy, or a software program that could help deal with diabetes. Whatever it is, this is the place to share it.

Head to Head Comparison

The Dexcom STS and the Paradigm RT continuous monitors are currently available in the U.S. with a prescription. In this study, they are compared head to head while being worn by one person with Type 1 diabetes. Over 33 days, 262 simultaneous readings were compared between a One Touch meter and the two continuous monitors. The meter was used to calibrate both monitors and as the standard against which their accuracy was evaluated.
