Although clear evidences of the beneficial effects of tight glycemic control on diabetic patients had been already made, the past decade has not seen any noticeable improvement in terms of glycemic control. "Ubiquitous health care system", which is one of the developing fusion technologies of IT, BT and NT, could give us new solutions in future. We established the Internet based glucose monitoring system (IBGMS) and conducted prospective, randomized short-term and long-term clinical trials using the system which can guide the patients with diabetes by mobile technology anytime and anywhere. The mean HbA1c and HbA1c fluctuation index (SD of mean HbA1c) during the whole study period was significantly lowered by the intervention, suggesting more improved state in both HbA1c level and glucose stability. Appropriate physician's advises to the patients' questions and problems at the right time through the IBGMS were the major interventions. Although many unsolved problems still exist, the Internet-based bidirectional communication system developed by the advanced information technology can contribute to the foundations to tomorrow's or ubiquitous medicine
