Remote monitoring of diabetes- the future?

I think the old model of diabetes care will become redundant for many of our patients. In Scotland Primary care doctors look after about 80% of patients with diabetes and only the complex ones come to secondary care. Even in these patients clinic visits once or twice a year is not adequate. They need to be seen(unlikely to happen) or monitored regularly. This is where remote monitoring will become the norm. I see it of particular value in young people with diabetes who are natural at adopting new tech.

QualcommLife announcement is another space which we need to monitor.
