Abstract: A poster presentation regarding access to antidiabetic treatment and patient self-monitoring. Introduction: Patient self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) levels contributes to patient empowerment and optimization of management of diabetes. Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is increasing in use and involves monitoring blood glucose levels using a continuous glucose monitor. Aims: • To investigate the perception of patients with Type 1 diabetes (T1DM) regarding SMBG and CGM; • To identify problems encountered by patients when carrying out blood glucose self-monitoring.
