Recently, I alerted readers to the fact that the updated FDA POCT glucose meter standard no longer specifies 100% of the results.
So I submitted a letter to the editor to the Journal of Diabetes Science and Technology.
This letter has been accepted – It seemed to take a long time for the editors to decide about my letter. I can think of several possible reasons:
- I was just impatient – the time to reach a decision was average
- The editors were exceptionally busy due to their annual conference which just took place.
- By waiting until the conference, the editors could ask the FDA if they wanted to respond to my letter.
I’m hoping that #3 is the reason so I can understand why the FDA changed things.
