ISO 15197, MARD for CGM, Desang magazine reader survey

LIVINGLIVING

Reader survey responders said that

they tested a lot 'as I like to know

what's going on with my blood

glucose level' (33.4%) and 'I don't

mind blood tests and test as much

as I want to' (31.8%).

"

*ISO 15197:2013

It's a brave soul who goes for a meter

that does not conform to ISO 151197!

The ISO standard for self-testing glucose

monitoring systems required that

manufacturers of these systems provided

even greater accuracy than previously.

Project leader for ISO 15197, Dr. Alan

Cariski, commented at the time of the

new standard (in 2013), "More accurate

glucose measurements will help patients

to better regulate their diabetes through

more informed treatment decisions that

may affect, for example, dietary intake

and medication dose, especially insulin."

A note about CGM accuracy: this is

defined by the Mean Absolute Relative

Difference (MARD). This is a measure

that shows on average how far away the

glucose sensor reading is from a blood

glucose reading, irrespective of whether

the difference observed is more or less

than the blood glucose reading. Source:
