The FDA has just given 501(k) clearance to the first insulin-management and insulin-titration mobile phone app for individuals with type 2 diabetes.
Developed by digital insulin management company, Hygieia, the app is able to measure individualized doses for all types of insulin regimens and connect to any glucose meter that shares data with the cloud. It is available for both iOS and Android mobile phones. By using insulin-titration algorithms combined with a patient’s individual blood glucose readings, the service provides personalized insulin adjustments. The mobile phone app brings that information to the forefront, as patients can enter glucose event data into the phone app to receive a recommended insulin dose.
