The aim of our study was to examine the effectiveness of a free smartphone application combined with text-message feedback to improve glycemic control and other diabetes related outcomes in adult patients with type 1 diabetes in a two group randomized controlled trial.

 

In adjunct with usual care, use of the Glucose Buddy application combined with weekly text-message feedback from a Certified Diabetes Educator led to a significant decrease in HbA1c in comparison to a control group receiving only usual care.
