Abstract

Advances in devices for people with diabetes have demonstrated many improvements; yet, the number of adverse events has almost doubled from 2018 to 2019. It is a challenge to examine these events due to a difficult query tool on the FDA website. There are several possible reasons why effort is not devoted to decreasing the number of adverse events including the fact that user error is a common cause. This commentary serves to raise awareness of the adverse event problem.
