With a growing demand for streamlining technology and the record breaking use of cell phones being substituted for PC’s, this is a moment Diabetics have all been waiting for!
Are you sick and tired of juggling multiple devices such as lancets and glucometers? Are you over lugging around multiple devices, just to monitor your blood glucose? Would you give anything not to have to stick your finger multiple times a day? Your wish may have come true.
Diabetics rejoice! There is a new CGM (continuous glucose monitor), the Dexcom G5 mobile CGM, which has just been approved by the FDA on August 25th. It has Bluetooth capabilities built right into it and transmits data to an app on iOS enabled smart phones. It has been FDA approved for people as young as 2 years of age! This app can be synced with as many as 5 devices. That means parents and caregivers can stay up to date with their loved ones blood glucose levels in a convenient and streamlined way.
