Glucose modeling battles


There is an upcoming article in Clinical Chemistry accompanied by an editorial which features another Boyd and Bruns modeling of glucose errors. This time the paper’s focus is on measurement frequency for CGM (continuous glucose monitoring) monitors. BUT … the modeling is the same – namely the use of the Westgard model where average bias and imprecision are equated to total error.

Now I have an upcoming paper which tries to show the limitations of their approach – I realize that their paper was in the works before my paper appeared – so we’ll see if I have an impact. Previously, my efforts to show the limitations of this modeling were not successful in so far as Boyd and Bruns continued to publish papers using their model as is.
