Smart Meter Announces Launch of iGlucose Blood Glucose Monitoring (BGM) System for Use in Managing Gestational Diabetes

August 24, 2021 GMT

TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Smart Meter, the leader in cellular-connected remote patient monitoring (RPM) devices, data and services, today announced the availability of its iGlucose monitor for managing gestational diabetes. iGlucose provides those with gestational diabetes an easy and reliable way to test, monitor and manage their blood glucose levels, ensuring that all care providers have immediate access to testing results.

According to the CDC, every year, 2% to 10% of, or 700,000, pregnancies in the United States are affected by gestational diabetes. Usually tested around week 24 of pregnancy, gestational diabetes can be effectively controlled if blood glucose is monitored and care is overseen by a provider.

Key Benefits of iGlucose in Gestational Diabetes include:
