The compact iBGStar is a new blood glucose meter and monitoring system, The iBGStar plugs directly into the base of your iPhone or iPod touch and quickly displays results immediately after your testing, on your phone’s touch screen via the iBGStar Diabetes Manager App. The unit itself, is sleek, small and ultra-portable.
The iBGStar Diabetes Manager App has a wide range of on- the-go features that allow users several different ways to analyze their readings over time. Patients can record and track readings, carbohydrate intake and (if applicable) insulin dosing. Color coded scorecards keep track of your individual test results, making any low blood glucose readings very easy to identify. The application also has a nifty “share” feature which enables users to pick out information to send (as an e-mail) to their doctor or other health-care professional.
Interestingly, the small profile iBGStar device can also be used as a stand alone device in order to measure your blood glucose levels and then you can opt to synchronize your results to your iDevice at a later time.
