As a diabetic and CMO of Mobile Health Tech, I have developed a new mobile, web-based diabetes management solution that I am in the early stages of clinical trials with. It allows patients such as myself to improve compliance by sending reminders to takes my meds and submit my BS readings by cell phone, where they get plotted on a graph for myself and my Endocrinologist to view. Mobile reminders can include: meds, exercize, Dr. appointments, BS readings, emotional support or anything. It's helped me to improve my sugar levels so far, and I'm looking for Doctors and Hospitals that would like to test it or hold their own clinical trials for their patients. Please let me know if there is interest or any suggestions out there…Thanks!

Just saw this. Sounds like a great idea as I tend to be quite forgetful. Love the idea of the chart also. Hope it will be available soon, would love to check it out!

I am new and would love to know about your device aka solution. This sounds perfect for me since I am a terribly forgetful person!

Have you taken a look at

Thanks for the heads-up on that site. They appear to provide a solution that includes a cable connection from glucometer to a PC. My approach is using an every day cell phone to receive reminders to take meds, take readings — and submit readings which can be really helpful to those that have a more active or mobile lifestyle. My solution also allows you to receive supportive messages on your cell phone to help us exercise, eat properly, emotional support, etc. Any type of compliance support, however, I believe is extremely beneficial to us.

I think your system is a great idea. Like you say, anything that helps us be compliant and in better health is a real PLUS! I appreciate your work. Let me know when your site is up, I'd love to take a look.

WOW!!! My husband and I were just talking last night about something like that for me. I'm very interested in your idea, even if it doesn't connect with a Dr. Just the reminders and a chart would be so great.
I've not got a very good memory and forget so much.
God Bless you

When you've lived with diabetes for a while as many of us have, you begin to feel your mortality.

Through this program (I've been working on it for about a year), I only hope that I can help others to manage this condition that has been very difficult on me to manage. I think we all want to leave this place a little better than we found it!

I'll be happy to let you know when it's ready for prime time. Thanks!
