One of the toughest things about living with diabetes is the need to constantly monitor blood sugar levels and make sure your body’s chemistry doesn’t get out of whack. There are plenty of portable solutions out there, but carrying yet another device in your purse or pocket can be a hassle, that’s why iBGStar wants to turn your iPhone into a glucose monitor.

The iBGStar device easily snaps into the iPhone’s 30 pin dock connector and can instantly send information from your last test onto a specially-designed app. Voilá, no need to carry around an insulin monitor, all you have to have on you is the collection device and your phone.

iBGStar is currently available in England, though the companion app hasn’t been released quite yet. We’re still waiting for the product to make its way Stateside and have high hopes that it will be arriving in the near future.
