Arm Intervention/treatment
Subjects with diabetes
Subjects with diabetes (or parents/guardians, if applicable)and healthcare professionals (HCPs) use a new blood glucose monitoring system. Subjects were 4 to 24 years of age with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
Device: DIDGET (Investigational Blood Glucose Monitoring System)
Subjects with diabetes (with parent/guardian assistance, if applicable)and health care professionals (HCPs) each performed duplicate Blood Glucose (BG) tests from the subject's capillary blood on the DIDGET. To test the full range of glucose concentrations, a venipuncture was performed on some subjects to obtain enough blood for modifying (spiking or glycolyzing) to the extreme glucose concentrations. Results were compared to a laboratory glucose method - the Yellow Springs Instrument (YSI) Analyzer.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percent of Blood Glucose (BG) Results Within +/-15mg/dL or +/-20% of Laboratory Glucose Method [ Time Frame: 1-2 hours ]
    Subjects with diabetes and healthcare professionals (HCPs) used a new blood glucose monitoring system (BGMS) with subject blood. BGM results were compared to a lab glucose method - Yellow Springs Instrument (YSI) Analyzer. Duplicate BG results were used to calculate the number of BG results within +/-15mg/dL (for reference BG results <75mg/dL) or +/- 20% (for reference BG values >/=75mg/dL) of the reference method results.
