Abstract

Aim: Patients with type 1 diabetes and their families are increasingly interested in technological development in glucose monitoring. The comfort of frequently monitoring with flash glucose monitoring (Freestyle Libre/Abbott) is appealing although it is not commercially available yet in Turkey. In this study, we aimed to investigate the data obtained by this method as well as the experience, satisfaction, and the problems encountered by the families.
