A leading diabetes software company is taking action to serve the global diabetes community amid the current COVID-19 pandemic and offering a free, remote care solution for healthcare professionals. 

Glooko is providing a no-charge, live person-to-clinician connectivity, which is being made available to medical clinics and people with diabetes in countries where Glooko technology is already provided.

The remote care solution is a version of the widely popular Diasend product, used by more than 94% of secondary care specialist diabetes clinics in the UK.

Announced on the same day Prime Minister Boris Johnson outlined strict new measures to tackle the spread of coronavirus, Glooko is offering up its secure, privacy-protected remote-care solution at no charge to medical clinics and people with diabetes until the greatest threat of the pandemic has subsided.

This will  help clinicians to run virtual clinics and reduce the risk to both clinicians and people with diabetes, who are at an increased risk of severe illness from coronavirus.

For certain appointments, healthcare professionals may determine that the person with diabetes and their care team would be best served by a remote review of the their personal diabetes data and a corresponding telehealth consult, reserving in-office visits only for those appointments where a person’s medical status truly requires in-person treatment.

Interested medical clinics and people with diabetes can learn more about how to access the Glooko remote-care solution at www.glooko.com.

    Diabetes Freedom Review suggests that it is a holistic 3-step system that addresses the root cause of Diabetes and treats it using phytonutrients.

    Diabetes Freedom Review is not a hoax, a review carefully formatted for the people to decide between the medications and a healthy lifestyle suggested in the program. We forget that our ancestors lived a long life who not even held a walking stick as support.
