The things we D-Mums get excited about!!!

Yesterday afternoon I was delighted to receive a message inviting the 2 kids to trial the BGStar and iBGStar BGL meters!

Why so excited?

Well, we've been waiting for the iBGStar here in Australia for a LONG time!

So, to get to be among the first in Australia to use this is just sooooo exciting!

Of course, I'm more excited than the kids.

The BGStar is a very small meter linked to BGStar Diabetes Management Software which can be shared with your Diabetes team.


The iBGStar is tiny - and (this is the exciting bit) - attaches to the bottom of your iPhone or iPod Touch and works with the iBGStar Diabetes Manager App which then stores your results which can be sent directly to the parent and/or your medical professional from your iPhone via email!


The kids will each be receiving the BGStar and iBGStar sometime next week.

The BGStar is due for release in Australia on 1 July 2012.

The iBGStar is due to be launched in Australia on 1 September 2012.

Can't wait to let you all know our thoughts on these much anticipated products!
