One of the goals of a digital diabetes management system is to improve the patient’s self-management and control of their condition. Blood glucose level reduction and sustainment of lower levels of blood glucose is one of the greatest challenges in managing diabetes. Digital engagement can play a pivotal role in the care of patients with diabetes and other chronical conditions, potentially improving patient’s compliance. The DarioTM Blood Glucose Monitoring System (BGMS) connects physically to a smart mobile device and automatically logs blood glucose measurements into a designated application (App). Data is transmitted to the Dario cloud.

Method: A retrospective data evaluation study was performed on the DarioTM cloud data base. A population of all active type 2 diabetic (T2D) users that took measurements with DarioTM BGMS on average of 20 measurements per month during 2017. The study assessed the ratio of all high blood glucose readings (180-400 mg/dL) and the ratio of all normal blood glucose readings (80-120 mg/dL) in their first month of use to their last month of use during 2017 as recorded in the database.

Results: For 17,156 T2D users activated during 2017 the average ratio of high events (180-400 mg/dL) was reduced by 19.3% (from 28.4% to 22.9% of the entire measurements). While at the same time, the ratio of normal range readings (80-120 mg/dL) was increased in 11.3% (from 25.6% to 28.5% of the entire measurements). The most significant shift occurred after one month of usage (14% decrease) and maintained stability over the following months throughout the full year.

Conclusion: The combination of a glucose meter and an App may promote behavioral modification and enhanced adherence to diabetes management, demonstrating improvement in glycemic outcomes and sustainment for a long period of time.
