There are two things that are needed for success here:

  1. This device can also monitor blood glucose levels with a separate sensor as well as a bodyfat % recorder.
  2. Medicare, Medicaid, VA Health, and private insurers mandated to pay for this and related items.

My comment on this article from Disqus:

Especially since Medicare/Medicaid won’t pay for the current monitors at home, and few private insurers do as well, though the tech is such that it’s HIPAA compliant, and family doctors and their staff can be alerted to issues before they show up at the quarterly exam periods.
