Network enabled glucometers

These are traditional glucometers but with a twist, they are Bluetooth enabled and come with an app for your smart phone. So whenever you take a reading of your blood glucose level, information is automatically transferred to the app. Mostly these apps store information in the cloud so that it is easy to share with anyone including your doctor. Further, based on your disease type, history and another parameter like age and weight, these apps can provide you advice from time to time. They may also remind you so that you take your readings on a regular basis. Many of these apps may have social support functionality, further helping you with various advice.
