SAN DIEGO, Oct. 28, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The MyGlucoHealth Wireless meter and diabetes management technology were recently featured on a special edition of the Emmy Award-winning daytime TV show — 'The Doctors.' In a segment entitled "The 60 Second Test & Treatment," local nurses, in cooperation with the American Red Cross, tested members of the studio audience for diabetes, blood pressure, cholesterol, lung function, body fat, and lactose intolerance.

Dr. Jim Sears, a host of 'The Doctors' and a board-certified pediatrician, introduced the MyGlucoHealth tests saying, "This only takes a few seconds, but it could change your life!"

"This test is unique because it's the first FDA (cleared) meter with a Bluetooth device. The results go immediately to your doctor, so there is no waste of time. You can get diagnosed early."

"The MyGlucoHealth Wireless meter was showcased along with several other cutting edge technologies that can provide early detection of life-threatening conditions," said Richard Strobridge, CEO of Entra Health, developer of MyGlucoHealth. "MyGlucoHealth is an advanced diabetes meter that allows results to be delivered via a mobile phone to a secure website that's engineered to store, analyze and act on data. From MyGlucoHealth.net, glucose readings can also be transmitted directly into a wide range of Electronic Health Records (EHR) systems for easy physician access."

Using automated tools, MyGlucoHealth can set up reminders to encourage patients to test more frequently, as well as to notify family, caregivers and clinicians when testing results reach critical levels. MyGlucoHealth gives patients more direct control over their care and provides clear lines of communication with clinicians and caregivers.
