May 28, 2013

LONDON, May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Vital improvements can be made to patients diabetes control, by ensuring a recent
blood glucose history is available to their Specialist Nurse. Traditionally patients have
recorded their results in a paper logbook but now the new app from GlucoMen is a fantastic
alternative using Smartphone technology to ensure a complete and accurate record.

The GlucoLog Lite app records all test results so that patients will always have their
glucose history at consultations, enabling analysis of the effectiveness of their
treatment. Important decisions can be made to help avoid the sometimes devastating long
term complications of diabetes.

Furthermore, results within the app can be viewed in various formats, a simple
logbook, graph or chart. And results can even be emailed between patient and healthcare
professional, for analysis and advice at any time.

Chris Betts, Business Unit Manager for GlucoMen is quoted saying “The free GlucoLog
Lite app has been designed to help people with diabetes manage their condition using their
Smartphone to store vital information and share it with their specialist. No longer should
results be scribbled into a paper diary. It is estimated that over 30% of people in the UK
now own a Smartphone[1] so GlucoLog Lite offers people with diabetes a convenient way to
improve their care.”

Glucose results can be entered into the GlucoLog Lite app in two ways, either manually
or using another recently released product from GlucoMen called GlucoLog Bluetooth device.
This device will link up with the Smartphone to quickly download all results to the app
from the blood glucose meter.
