After Thoughts: Kim Stebbings (GlycoMark, Inc.)
Kim has been involved in the diabetes industry for a long time, and it was a real pleasure to chat with her on the show. It was fun to put things into perspective, hearing about some of the devices Kim helped introduce in the early 1980′s.
The first home glucose meter she launched was a huge brick that required a large blood sample and took a full two minutes to get a result. There was no meter memory, no downloads into a computer, nothing like that.
We’ve come a long way.
She’s currently involved with GlycoMark, which is a new lab test that can be used to help get a picture of overall post-meal blood sugar management.
