Hi Khun Nakarin….I would like to add some comments supplementary to of Khun Tullaya…. apart from the clinical concerns detailed by her as an Endocrinologist, I think the point that the data must be filled into the application by the patient themself may affect the adherence of the self-monitoring. The cost is quite cheap comparing to other automated glucose monitoring tool already available in markets but its effectiveness may not worth the money. The most concerns is that self entry of such clinical data may be deliberately inaccurate filling in by the patients. What I heard often is that much-uncontrolled blood sugar related to food behaviour and fear of being blamed for the uncontrollable and of being hypo. Look at its “health-on-our-hand” side, it’d be more helpful for pt. if the app. can give some near-real-time feedback on trends of their blood sugar, and tips on how to manage their blood sugar based on their personal data and behaviour. The options may help pt. be more aware of their behaviour and be more empowered before due to an appointment with the doctor.
