Gestational diabetes

Mobile monitoring of expectant mothers with gestational diabetes

How does the gestational diabetes service work?

Patients are asked to test and submit their blood glucose levels up to seven times a day depending on their condition. Patients can choose to communicate using a smartphone app (My Inhealthcare) or SMS. Patients and clinicians can also send messages directly to each other.

If readings breach personalised thresholds, clinicians are notified and can step in as necessary with medical intervention, reassurance or advice about diet and lifestyle.

The service is being rolled out by Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Gateshead Health NHS Foundation Trust and South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The three Trusts have pooled their combined experience of previous in-house services to redesign a new and improved version for the wider region.
