Virtual endo

Started this discussion. Last reply by Brian (bsc) Aug 4. 10 Replies

There's been a lot of talk about virtual medicine, via videoconferencing and other tech. I feel like I could actually get better treatment if I were uploading CGM data over the web to a doc's office.…Continue

Anybody know a good doc for a type 1 in Richmond, VA or Fredericksburg? I'm out in the boonies, the Northern Neck of Virginia, and it's hard to find good specialists. Any ideas greatly…Continue

It's been the same single piano piece for years. It sort of hit me today how long I've been hearing it :)Continue

"Integrated Diabetes is truly outstanding and they do a lot remote work, but I believe they only do diabetes education and training, they don't have any doctors or physicians on staff and can't prescribe."

"Don't know if that works across state lines but if you check out the list of services, they provide written management plans. You can take that to you GP and go from there. Or give them a call."

"That is so interesting. Very cool! Do you know if they can deal with scripts for insulin and testing? I guess I could just stick with my GP for that, if not."

"Thanks Brian, you're a patient of his? This makes a lot of sense. I could see traveling to just about anywhere once to get a really top-notch doc and then stay in touch remotely."

"Believe it or not after your first visit Bernstein works remotely with his patients. He has you do you labs and send in your logs and then talks to you on the phone."

Virtual endo

There's been a lot of talk about virtual medicine, via videoconferencing and other tech. I feel like I could actually get better treatment if I were uploading CGM data over the web to a doc's office. Anybody ever have experience with this or know a doc that works with diabetic patients remotely? I live in a very rural area and the nearest endocrinologist is 70 miles away -- it's also pretty hard to get accepted as a new patient. Curious if this is a thing yet, remote medicine for diabetics--but…See More

People in this community are using the Glucosurfer freqeuently and infrequently but I wish I could motivate more to do so. Although our project allows full anonymity it may be problematic to post a link under a user account in a social community. I think people still fear to be identified by their photo etc. Thus I am offering to speak on behalf of our users in this community. This way someone could seek help and share their diary and the real identity will not be revealed to the public.

The CGMS data available on the Glucosurfer main page (Demo 3) can be a little frustrating. This user has good control but the tendency of going low should be considered too. This is reflected by a considerably high ADRR value in the Diagram 'Glucose - Proportional Trend - Statistics'. The ADRR is a risk indicator for the deviation of the blood glucose. It sets the achieved level of control in contrast to the deviation. Thus good control paired with a good ADRR is something I try to achieve.
