Self-monitoring of blood glucose is an integral part of diabetes care which may be extended to other biometrics. Cellular and short range communication technologies will be important for the routine usage of these systems. However, the issues of follow-up and patient compliance with these emerging systems have not been yet studied evaluated but could be critical to the adoption of these technologies. We evaluated the impact of mobile telemonitoring on the intensification of care on blood pressure control and exposure to hyperglycaemia in patients with diabetes. We randomised 137 patients with diabetes to either mobile telemonitoring (n = 3D72) or usual care patients (n = 3D65) for 9 months. In this paper we present some of the clinical results with focus on blood pressure control hypertension and highlight some of the technical and compliance issues that were encountered.
