Glytec Developing Novel Solution for Selection and Dosing of All Diabetes Medications

New product will be the market’s first and only to enable optimization of ALL diabetes medications, insulin and non-insulin alike.

In spite of greater than 80 medications currently available in the U.S. to treat diabetes, less than half of the estimated 22 million people prescribed one or more are maintaining blood sugar levels within the acceptable range. The consequences not only impact health status and quality of life, they add to the growing economic burden of diabetes estimated in 2017 at $327 billion. With multiple patent allowances for its novel Therapy Advisor® software-as-a-medical-device and active engagement in the FDA 510(k) process, Glytec is poised to improve these clinical and financial outcomes by helping providers more easily and efficaciously select and dose all varieties of diabetes medications. No solution of like kind is currently available, Therapy Advisor® will be the first.

Glytec’s Software Yields Superior Patient Outcomes According to Four New Studies in Journal of Diabetes Science and Technology

Safety and efficacy of Glytec’s eGlycemic Management System® for diabetes therapy management, and its advantages over conventional methods, is further validated by four peer-reviewed studies.

Four new studies published in the January 2018 issue of Journal of Diabetes Science and Technology (JDST) demonstrate superior patient outcomes and organizational performance with Glytec’s eGlycemic Management System® (eGMS®) versus conventional, paper-based protocols. In all instances, which included both inpatient and outpatient settings, use of eGMS® for diabetes and insulin therapy management was observed to be safer and more effective than ‘usual care,’ with lower rates of hypoglycemia, faster resolution of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), expedited time to target glucose, and sustained reductions in A1c. Additionally, use of eGMS® led to substantive efficiency gains in provider workflows, fewer point-of-care tests, shorter lengths of stay, and full adoption of best practices, including 96% utilization of basal bolus insulin.
