Effect of Telemonitoring Intervention on Glycemic Control in Diabetes Patients: A systemic Review of Randomized Controlled Trials

Y.L. Nge, N. Suksomboon, and N. Poolsup*


Diabetes is a metabolic disease and the number of diabetes is increasing worldwide. Regular follow-up treatment and self-care management are important to control blood glucose level. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of telephone contact intervention on glycemic control compared with the usual care in diabetes. The literatures were electronically searched up until January 2013. We also searched from the references of relevant studies. All randomized control trials which evaluated the telephonic intervention in diabetes patients and measured glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) as an outcome were included. Data were extracted for year of publication, country, intervention and clinical outcome. Twenty studies were included in this systematic review. The intervention components consisted of education related to diabetes and monitoring of self-care activities such as medication, lifestyle, diet and self-monitoring glucose measuring. Among the included studies, eight studies showed significant improvement in HbA1c compared with the control group. From the results of all included studies, telesupport may improve glycemic control in diabetes.
