The Food and Drug Administration has approved the newest continuous glucose monitoring system from diabetes management device manufacturer Medtronic.
The iPro™ continuous glucose recorder is a simplified evaluation tool for doctors that allows them to uncover patterns and potential problems in patients that often go undetected with standard glucose measurements, such as finger-stick meters and HbA1c tests.
Medtronic says that the device's small size and improved ergonomics will help doctors more easily develop personalized diabetes management programs for certain patients. These include people who experience dangerous high and low blood sugar levels, are unaware of hypoglycemia, desire better control, have gestational diabetes or are pregnant.
Among the monitor's features:
The iPro unit attaches to small sensor under the skin. It records blood glucose variations over a three-day period.
Patient return their iPros to their doctors who then download its data to a computer.
