Mac-compatibility remains an issue for many of us trying to manage diabetes.
What I would really like is for the Abbott CoPilot software to be Mac-compatible. I’m happy with the FreeStyle strips and meters because they are very easy for Q to use, just incredibly unhappy that I can’t get the data off the meter!
I thought you might find this press release interesting. iBGStar has received FDA clearance.
iBGStar™ Blood Glucose Monitoring System Receives U.S. FDA 510(k) Clearance
(Here’s a portion of the press release:)
December 7, 2011 – Sanofi U.S., together with its partner AgaMatrix, announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted 510(k) premarket clearance for the iBGStar™ Blood Glucose Monitoring System, the first and only FDA cleared blood glucose meter that directly connects to the Apple® iPhone® and iPod touch®, seamlessly integrating accurate blood glucose monitoring into the lifestyles of people with diabetes. The iBGStar™ is already available in Germany, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Italy.
The compact iBGStar™ glucose meter, when plugged directly into the iPhone® or iPod® touch, quickly displays results immediately after testing on the full-color touch screen via the iBGStar™ Diabetes Manager App. iBGStar™ also can be used alone to measure blood glucose levels and results can be synchronized to an iPhone® or iPod® touch at a later time.
