What does the app do?
The mySugr Diabetes Logbook app allows users to record their blood glucose levels throughout the day, and using these values it calculates an estimated HbA1c. It also allows you to record other information such as carbohydrate consumption, body weight, physical activity, blood pressure, ketones, and insulin doses. To be fun and entertaining, and encourage positive habits (such as recording your insulin dose), the app uses a 'monster friend' and a reward system.
|✔ This app is useful as a log for recording blood glucose levels, activity, meals and carbohydrate amounts.
✔ Easy to use and good visuals when looking back through previous day's data.
✔ Enables quick entry of data.
✔ The app is American-based but the units of measure for blood glucose and weight can be customised to the units used in New Zealand.
|✘ Cost to upgrade to Pro version which has functions like reminders.
✘ The app is American-based — HbA1C is recorded in mmol/mol and not as %, which is the current NZ recommendations.
