Control and outcome in type 1 diabetes is improved by patients using glucometers to measure their glucose levels regularly. Some patients are reluctant to use these devices for various reasons; they are useful only if changes in sugar levels produce changes in behavior — chiefly with regard to eating and injecting insulin. And, although the devices are marketed to patients with type 2 diabetes, there is a lack of evidence of effectiveness there, and a certainty that more benefit could be had from that cost if it were spent on diabetes treatment and other assistance.
Diabetes Supply: A glucose meter (or glucometer) is a medical device for determining the approximate amount of glucose in a drop of blood obtained by pricking the skin with a lancet. Glucose meters are portable and designed for use by ordinary people, especially those with diabetes.
The iHealth® Align Gluco-Monitoring System is the smallest and most portable mobile glucometer. The meter plugs directly into your Smartphone’s headphone jack, and displays results instantly on the phone screen. Just slightly bigger than a quarter, its compact size and mobile sync capability make it a small and powerful tool for diabetes management. The mobile app keeps track of test strip quantity and expiration dates. The free iHealth® Gluco-Smart app automatically keeps a history of your data.
