Detecting hyperglycemia in chronic liver disease using interstitial glucose monitoring

Status: In-progress
Year: 2020
Funded: $4,899
Grant Type: Grant in Aid

In the future, (interstitial) glucose monitoring technology might allow patients to have a small sensor inserted in their arm at clinic, then return the sensor by courier-post after two weeks of wear.  This study will assess whether this technology can be used to diagnose diabetes, in patients with chronic liver disease.
