GlucoPhone: A Cellphone for Diabetics


Good news, diabetics! No, there isn’t a new gadget to magically make alldelicious foods sugar free, but there is a new cellphone out that canmanage your diabetes easily and conveniently. This phone, from thefolks at HealthPia, is essentially a cellphone and glucometer. It willmeasure blood sugar levels, record and send results to yourself andothers and even manage your meal plans. The system uses custom softwarealong with an LG UX5000, VX5200, or LX350 and a Glucopack. My pops is adiabetic, now while he isn’t technologically savvy, I would still feelbetter knowing he could monitor his blood sugar level anywhere he goes.Good job, HealthPia.
