Point-of-care technology Using the latest point-of-care technology, we are able to accurately and immediately test and monitor your HbA1c, lipid profile, ambulatory glucose profile and blood pressure. These parameters are essential in evaluating your risk for developing complications of diabetes as well as being key components to your diabetes annual cycle of care.
Connected glucose monitoring devices Green Jelly Bean Diabetes utilises the latest technology for capturing detailed data on glucose profiles and trends. This revolutionary technology not only provides invaluable data for making treatment decisions, it directly empowers the user to take control through real time feedback and knowledge of glucose levels and patterns. This technology is particularly beneficial for those commencing insulin or those already using insulin but requiring optimisation.
