  • Causa
    Roche diabetes care has identified a programming error in the accu-chek connect diabetes management app ios version 1.2.0(.5) which under certain conditions could potentially lead to an inaccurate bolus insulin advice being provided to the patients. as a result of this issue the app “lightbulb” icon is not displayed and the correction bolus advice is not available.. the blood glucose (bg) value which could not be used initially may unintentionally become available for bolus advice calculation at a later time. if the patients then request a bolus advice for a bg value older than 10 minutes without taking and transferring a new bg measurement, it could lead to an incorrect bolus insulin recommendation. depending on the actual metabolic situation a potentially incorrect bolus advice could lead to serious health consequences.
