Abstract

Diabetes is a worldwide epidemic we are facing, and the problem is compounded by the shortage of specialty care providers to meet the demands. There have been continued advances in available technology, including various forms of telemedicine. The purpose of this article is to review the teleconsultation implications of Hemoglobin A1C lowering and association with hypoglycemia in individuals with Type 2 Diabetes. A literature search was conducted using PubMed and Google Scholar. The findings support the use of teleconsultation for a limited period in place of conventional appointments for patients with Type 2 Diabetes and demonstrated positive effects on Hemoglobin A1C lowering.
