Further study details as provided by Korea University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • HbA1c, fasting blood glucose level, Weight change, Blood pressure level in the morning, lipid profiles [ Time Frame: baseline, 3months later ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • exercise time during one week, self reported change in dietary habit, fat consumption ratio [ Time Frame: baseline, 3months later ]

Estimated Enrollment: 140
Study Start Date: July 2007
Study Completion Date: October 2007
Primary Completion Date: October 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

Diabetes care is facilitated by a patient's being engaged in a self-management program with the advice and counsel of physicians, but many diabetic patients can not receive the continous monitoing and advice from his physician in their every day life. It is very difficult to keep up life style modification in their real life.

Few studies have examined the effects of cellular phone based intervention that provide an interactive component daily. Our goal is to test the hypothesis that diabetes and hypertension management using cellular phone based health care system would result in significant improvement of blood glucose and blood pressure level.
