The Food and Drug Administration has given 510 (k) clearance to the mobile phone-based DiabetesManager System of WellDoc Communications Inc.

The application enables Type 2 diabetic patients to enter their blood sugar readings into their mobile phone and receive real-time feedback on what they should eat and other ways they can help stabilize their blood sugar. The software also can alert patients when they need to test their levels.

Further, the application sends the data to the vendor's servers, where it is analyzed and can be accessed by the patient's physicians and disease management caseworkers. It also can support glucose meters that can send data via Bluetooth wireless technology.

The vendor expects the system to be commercially available in early 2011. More information is available at
