American Diabetes Association announces new research grant for diabetes technology

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The American Diabetes Association announced that it will fund research that will examine the effectiveness of technology-based diabetes management devices.

The studies, funded by the American Diabetes Association/Medtronic Technology in Diabetes Fellowship, will utilize Medtronic's CareLink database — a database of anonymous continuous glucose monitoring and insulin pump-derived data — to assess, evaluate and correlate the application of this and similar technologies used by patients with insulin-treated diabetes.

"Research like this will help us better understand patient behavior," American Diabetes Association's president of medicine and science Robert Henry said. "In the long run, this research can help influence future diabetes technology and shape how we educate people with diabetes."
