Type 1 diabetes patients using continuous glucose monitors have been creating their own software, or hacking, to allow their CGM to send the data to a more manageable smartphone. This allows parents and other parties to monitor the health of loved ones, as well as makes the data more easily available to see on smart-watches.
Dexcom recently received the first FDA approval for this type of smartphone system, called the G4 SHARE. The CEO, Terry Gregg, discusses this concept, with diabetes expert Jay Skyler, MD, from Miami.
