Virtual Diabetes Monitoring and Management
Diabetes management is frustrating for the provider and the patient. Over 10% of the population and 20% of seniors have diabetes. Endocrinologists are overwhelmed by patients with waiting lists of 2 to 3 months. We have fewer than 6,000 endocrinilogists and 34 million diabetics. Clearly, the Primary Care Physician and family care Nurse Practitioners need a new way to manage their rapidly growing diabetic patient populations. Gaining patient compliance with diet, exercise and medication is critical to controlling pre-diabetes and Type 2 diabetes.
