Economic impact of sensor-based glucose monitoring of diabetes in Denmark

Original title: Omkostninger og gevinster ved at tilbyde sensorbaserede glukosemålere til personer med diabetes i Danmark

Sensor-based glucose monitoring is a new and superior way for people with diabetes to monitor their blood glucose level. Today’s most common way for people to monitor their blood glucose level is the so-called finger pricking method.

Academic research suggests that the risk of complications, such as hypoglycaemia, is reduced when using sensor-based glucose monitoring. The lower risk reduces people with diabetes’ need for healthcare services, which has a positive impact on the public sector’s budgets.

The main conclusions of our study are:
