The meter should help children to manage their diabetes by building consistent testing and meeting blood glucose target ranges.
The Didget has previously been launched in the UK to acclaim. In American, the meter will be available to buy from CVS.com, Drugstore.com and Walgreens.com. Children with diabetes who already play handheld games can have their testing routine positively reinforced, and even get rewards such as new levels.
