Sanofi announced that the iBGStar blood glucose monitoring system is now available for the management of diabetes. This is the first FDA cleared blood glucose meter that directly connects to the iPhone and iPod touch.

The iBGStar glucose monitoring system consists of the iBGStar blood glucose meter and iBGStar Diabetes Manager App. This system can also be used independently to measure blood glucose levels, and results can be synchronized later to an iPhone or iPod touch.

Some highlighted features include: visual graphs and statistics to record and track carbohydrate intake and insulin dosing, color-coded scorecards for easy identification of high or low blood glucose levels, and a ‘share’ function to e-mail results to caregivers and/or healthcare teams.
