Well, end up digging a finger for sugar measurement!One of the most common applications of those who have to live with diabetes is puncturing their fingers to measure blood sugar. Some patients have to do sugar measurements 10 to 15 times a day with finger blood and feel pain every time. The device, which removes the need for routine finger-drilling for candy, is aimed at ending the pain of diabetic patients.Blood sugar measurement is a mandatory test for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Usually the blood is taken from the tip of the finger. Blood sugar should be monitored frequently, especially in patients with type 1 diabetes and who have intense insulin treatment.The device, which is sold in Europe in 2014 and used by more than 300 people in 35 countries and measures blood sugar under the skin, offers an alternative to routine finger-drilling following sugar.The flash glucose monitoring system, which removes the necessity of finger-piercing for candy, was introduced to the use of diabetes patients in Turkey. The system promises to make sugar measurements everywhere and everywhere, without pain, and to save patients from an unpleasant but important application.At the press conference held in Istanbul, the characteristics of the device were explained and the specialists paid attention to the advantages of the system to the patient and to the follow-up of the disease.According to the information provided by the experts, the device contains a small sensor that remains attached to the upper arm for up to 14 days. In a short time from a second, it is enough to read the sensor to the reader for painless glucose measurement. Each reading; The instant glucose result, the past trend and the direction in which glucose goes. It allows me to measure as much as I need or want.PROVIDES ADVANTAGE FROM TREATMENT PLAN AND FOLLOW-UPProfessor of Endocrinology and Metabolism Diseases at Cerrahpasa Faculty of Medicine who emphasized that regular and frequent glucose monitoring is very important in terms of better management of diabetes mellitus. Dr. Hasan İlkova, "These new systems that remove the pain and irritation caused by the finger pierce make the measurement of the glucose more easily by providing more frequent measurements. This is helping diabetes management, "he said.Especially important for children with chronic illnessProfessor of Pediatric Endocrinology from Ege University emphasized that finger punch is a major stress source especially for children with diabetes. Dr. Damla Gökşen Şimşek said that children have to make sugar measurements by finger drilling about 10 times a day."45% of the children find this method difficult because of the difficulty of digging the finger, 30% from the pain, and 14% because of the embarrassment," Simsek said, explaining why the system is more important for children:"Children do not want to get up at midnight and measure blood sugar. For example, the child felt bad in the cinema, he wants to know how much blood sugar he has. Or at school you feel uncomfortable measuring your blood sugar in your friends. So I think this new system is a way to apply to children who do not want to make finger measurements. "WHAT IS RELIABLE?"How reliable is this system when compared to traditional blood glucose measurement methods? In other words, can the patient make insulin therapy by looking at these measurements? "Prof. Şimşek said that this device is useful for daily candy follow-up, but that blood glucose should be measured again for the treatment of insulin.PARTICLE DELIVERY IS REQUIRED FOR INSULIN TREATMENT!Professor who said that there is a literature study about the reliability of the device. Şimşek said, "This device, which measures sugar from one individual under the skin, is almost identical to the value on the other hand. But no compromise is available to us; 'Do not treat with the value you get from this device'. We do not want to give insulin to your child with the data you get from this device. 'Follow the instructions you get from this device, but when you do your insulin therapy, you say' we say 'we measure blood sugar by finger.'"VALUES RECORDED IN READINESS"Alper Saruhan, a diabetic basketball player who says that he has to follow the sugar 15-20 times a day and has to dig his fingers, said that this device makes him feel very comfortable, "The sensor records blood sugar values even if I do not read it in 15 minutes. It is possible that I can see and observe my blood sugar results while the sensor is constantly measuring and recording, sleeping at night, or during the match. "Is the product under the scope of SSK's reimbursement?Şimşek stated that the product is not covered by the SSI reimbursement yet and added, "In Turkey only blood sugar measurement devices are covered by a refund. Continuous subcutaneous sensors are not covered by a refund. "
