We currently use the Freestyle glucose monitoring device (a variant of this one http://www.abbottdiabetescare.com/freestyle-lite-blood-glucose-monitoring-system.html) but feel frustrated about it. This monitoring system was evaluated at Karolinska about ten years ago (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16299875) and the correlation with our previous "gold standard" - venous blood sugars measured with the Hemocue machine - was found to be good. Now, we often see that low values obtained with the Freestyle are commonly normal when venous samples are measured by the regular lab or with Hemocue. What equipment do you use for blood glucose monitoring in your unit? Does anyone have experience from micro-dialysis of newborns/preterms?
