Blood sugar monitoring devices pose wearability and use problems for older adults with diabetes and caregivers


  • Study participants found the glucose monitors and other wearable devices tricky to use, suggesting a need for device manufacturers to improve wearability and usability of the devices.
  • Study participants were very interested in understanding their numbers (such as glucose levels) and the implications of these numbers.
  • Nearly three-quarters of the study participants had low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), suggesting the need for monitoring devices to lead to more direct and effective management of blood sugar among older adults.
