Abstract

Introduction: The purpose of this study was to offer an updated global view of the scientific literature regarding the efficacy of type 1 diabetes mellitus telemedicine interventions. Material and Method: Articles retrieved from a PubMed Central search query. Information on biological and psychological parameters of these interventions was retained, sorted and analyzed. Results: The obtained results revealed that certain intensive approaches produced significant change in monitored parameters: increase in glycaemic control and in subjective parameters of psychological control over this condition. However, a segment of the studies taken into consideration noted poor results in some-or all-parameters taken into consideration. Conclusion: Our results highlights that however promising, these interventions still require significant focus and energy to become effective and thus useful for diabetic patients in a clinical setting.
