Currently pumps are becoming available that are able to continuously measure subcutaneous glucose levels and that notify patients by an alarm in case of high or low glucose values. However, closed-loop systems are not available yet. Devices Patients receive instructions for SMBG using a small portable meter. Insulin administration is then adjusted using algorithms based on fasting, preprandial, postprandial, and evening glucose concentrations to reach target blood glucose values (see Table 3). Blood glucose measurement devices are 26 ter Braak and Stades reasonably accurate and precise in the euglycemic range, but less exact in the hypoglycemic range.
