Can Remote Glucose Monitoring Improve Control? Intervention from nurses appeared to improve glycemic control among T2D patientsCreated by:
This UK clinical trials has showed that the simple intervention by the nurses checking diabetic patients glucose level, weight , and blood pressure online (patients' data telemtrically transmitted to them), and then they feedback to patients either by telephoneo or email, did produce an improved glyceamic control in the intervention group, comparing to the control group. This is a randomized trial. However, there are not significant different of weight, treatment patterns, medication adherence, or reported quality of life in both the intervention and control group. The proposed telemonitoring with nurse supported self-management of blood glucose (by feedback via phone or email), do possibly improved the glycemic control in those cohort with poorly control diabetes. Do you think such study will make some clinical impact in changing the practice? Sound like a good idea to implement on the cohort of patient with poorly glyceamic control ???
