The COVID-19 pandemic is wreaking havoc in our lives, with millions under quarantine or in isolation across the world. For people with diabetes, this could cause a particular problem, as regular doctor’s appointments and hospital visits are canceled for safety reasons.
Diabetes:M users, however, have a card up their sleeve – the Diabetes:M Monitor tool, part of our Premium subscription. It allows your doctor, clinician, caregiver or other medical experts to have your information ready and available in real-time. That means your medical team can monitor your condition remotely in this time of crisis and keep track of how you are doing.
To give them access to your data, first, they have to be registered in our system. This can be done on the following page, by filling out the “REGISTER AS A CLINICIAN” form:
Once the registration is complete they will receive instructions and a clinician code, which you can enter in the app to give them access.

This is it!
If you are not sure, ask your doctor if they are registered in our system and send them a link for this article if they are not!

Remember to always follow the instructions that keep you safe from COVID-19!

Type 1 diabetes, commonly known as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), is a type of diabetes that affects sugar metabolism. It is caused by the development of autoantibodies such as islet cell antibodies and insulin antibodies against beta-cell antigens by macrophages and T-lymphocytes. It usually starts in children and young people. As a result, it is also called as juvenile diabetes. Furthermore, the incidence of type 1 diabetes has increased in the last decade, affecting the young generation’s quality of life.
