Sanofi’s Blood Glucose Meter Now Available in U.S.

iBGStar hits the shops

A quick update from Sanofi who last December received FDA clearance for its iBGStar iPhone interfacing blood glucose meter.

Sanofi US announced late last week that the iBGStar® Blood Glucose Monitoring System, consisting of the iBGStar® blood glucose meter and iBGStar® Diabetes Manager App, is now commercially available in the U.S.

According to a company release; “iBGStar® is the first Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared blood glucose meter that directly connects to the iPhone® and iPod touch®, offering accurate blood glucose monitoring that seamlessly integrates into the lives of people with diabetes. iBGStar® is available for purchase at Apple® Retail Stores and all Walgreens stores nationwide, online at Apple.com, Walgreens.com and through Diabetic Care Services.”

Clinician comments

“Many people with diabetes today rely both on their iPhone® or iPod touch® and blood glucose monitors as important parts of their daily lives,” said Naina Sinha, MD, an in-patient diabetes attending physician and assistant professor of medicine at a leading academic medical center and university in New York City. “By combining these two essential tools, iBGStar® makes it possible to provide blood glucose tracking, monitoring and reporting together in a new way.”
