MiaoMiao (MM) is a Bluetooth transmitter, which when paired with a smart phone/device, converts the Abbott FreeStyle Libre flash glucose monitoring system into a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) continuous glucose monitor (CGM). Families are increasingly adopting DIY CGM solutions, but little is known about parent and child experiences with these add-on technologies. We aimed to explore experiences of families using MM-CGM including challenges faced and their advice to others who may choose to use the technology.

Name: Journal of diabetes science and technology
The use of advanced technologies for diabetes management is on the rise among pediatric patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII), continuous glucose monitor...
Few studies have assessed the accuracy of the FreeStyle Libre Pro (FLP) continuous glucose monitor for estimating plasma glucose (PG) in non-diabetic children. OBJECTIVE: Determine the accuracy of FLP...
Blood glucose sensing is very important for diabetic management. It is shifting towards a continuous glucose monitoring because such a system can alleviate patient suffering and provide a large number...
Artificial pancreas systems aim to reduce the burden of type 1 diabetes by automating insulin dosing. These systems link a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) and insulin pump with a control algorithm, b...
: The study aims are to explore the lived experiences of mothers and fathers of postpartum depression and parental stress after childbirth.: Qualitative interviews conducted, and analysed from an inte...
Prospective, randomized, controlled clinical trial. The aim is to compare the effects of the peritoneal dialysis solution IPX15, containing glucose (0.5%), xylitol (1.5%) and L-carnitine (...
Randomized, controlled, parallel groups, open label, blinded end-point assessment, multicenter study, comparing the effects of a low glucose peritoneal dialysis solution, XyloCore, to gluc...
This study will utilize continuous glucose monitoring in women with A2 gestational diabetes. Women will be randomized to continuous glucose monitoring or routine care with fingersticks to ...
The purpose of doing this study is to see if continuous glucose monitoring can help people with type 1 diabetes who are sometimes unable to feel if they have a low blood glucose reading. F...
Introduction and objective: The key to optimal diabetes management is tight glucose control. Hemoglobin A1c is the gold standard to assess glycemic control but in cases of unrecognized hyp...
Solution that is usually 10 percent glucose but may be higher. An isotonic solution of glucose is 5 percent.
Portable peritoneal dialysis using the continuous (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) presence of peritoneal dialysis solution in the peritoneal cavity except for periods of drainage and instillation of fresh solution.
Hypertonic sodium chloride solution. A solution having an osmotic pressure greater than that of physiologic salt solution (0.9 g NaCl in 100 ml purified water).
Maintenance of a constant blood glucose level by perfusion or infusion with glucose or insulin. It is used for the study of metabolic rates (e.g., in glucose, lipid, amino acid metabolism) at constant glucose concentration.
A glucose transport facilitator that is expressed primarily in PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; LIVER; and KIDNEYS. It may function as a GLUCOSE sensor to regulate INSULIN release and glucose HOMEOSTASIS.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
