Online Diabetes Management System With Instant Upload Capability

| Oct 1, 2001

Now, doctors and patients can access all the information they need regarding the patient's health with the InSight Professional. In August 2001, Disetronic Medical Systems Inc. of St. Paul, Minnesota, launched the online diabetes management program that allows users to create a personal database of their insulin intake, blood-sugar levels and more. Patients can upload information directly from their insulin pumps and blood glucose meters from their home computers.

InSight Professional is compatible with the D-TRON Insulin Pump using an infrared port or cable, but will accept information from most pumps and glucose meters on the market. Patients can also add additional information on exercise, carbohydrate consumption and a "feel-good" index for a comprehensive view of their health. The information is uploaded instantly and stored in a high-security database that requires a password to access.

The data is available for doctors to view immediately. The patient's statistics are organized into a variety of formats: a profile, charts, graphs and reports.

For more information, contact Disetronic Medical Systems at (800) 280-7801 or log on to www.disetronic-direct.com.
