About the GravidPluss project

The Gravid Pluss project aims to develop and evaluate a mobile application ("the Gravid+ app") for women with gestational diabetes mellitus. The project started in April 2014 and is funded by the Norwegian Research Council. Blood sugar levels are automatically transferred from a glucometer to the smartphone and users receive tailored advice about their diet and physical activity. The app will be tested among 260 women with gestational diabetes in an randomized controlled study at 5 hospitals in Oslo and Akershus. Read more about our App ...
