FDA Finalizes Guidances for Blood Glucose Meters

. The guidance documents were previously issued in draft form for public comment on January 7, 2014.

While the Agency historically placed similar requirements on the two types of glucose meters, FDA notes that it has become clear that the two user groups (health professionals and patients) have different needs that can impact device design considerations. Therefore, the Agency issued separate documents allowing manufactures to take these unique needs into account when designing their devices. For example, FDA notes that under the existing regulatory scheme, BGMSs used in professional healthcare settings have not been adequately evaluated in some of the populations in which they are being used (e.g., complex physiological and pathological factors). Therefore, FDA lays out different considerations and performance criteria for devices used in different settings. This kind of risk-based approach to requiring different performance characteristics depending on use environment may appear counterintuitive, but FDA has a long history of tailoring regulatory requirements to reflect unique, specific intended uses and differentiating them from the requirements that may apply in other, general, or less risky environments or indications.

Are there any alternatives to the finger or forearm pricking? I start to pass out at the thought,
There are no other areas I could prick the skin?

Home glucometers are not accurate enough to diagnose diabetes. Diabetes is NOT a do-it-yourself project. It makes no sense at all to gather data that you don't understand.
Go to the doctor and get an A1c test and have your answer.

Sorry, no other way. You must poke yourself somewhere. Not fun but absolutely necessary if you are diabetic.

If you have symptoms, you need to see a DOCTOR. Those home "finger stick" tests are NOT useful for DIAGNOSIS. There are used ONLY for CONTROL of a person who already is diagnosed.

The ONLY way to diagnose diabetes is using blood
