Web-Based Follow-Up Using Cellular Phone in Type 1 Diabetic Patients Under Insulin Pump Therapy : The PumpNet Study

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT00324584
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : May 11, 2006

University Hospital, Grenoble

Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine if telecare using modern telecommunication devices can improve the metabolic control and the quality of life of type 1 diabetic patients.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus Device: Telemonitoring of glucose values using GlucoNet device Phase 3

Detailed Description:
We aim at comparing conventional follow-up of type 1 diabetic patients treated with continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) (face-to-face visits) with an intensive coaching using the Web and the cellular phone network for data transmission and Short Message Service (SMS). This telecommunication device is called GlucoNet. The specific objectives are to measure the efficiency of GlucoNet in improving metabolic control, reducing health care costs and improving the quality of life of patients.
