Going “Goo Goo” for Glooko!

glooko for managing type one diabetes

A couple of weeks ago, my husband discovered the diabetes software – Glooko – on the Internet. Founded in 2010, Glooko’s innovative app allows both Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetics to analyze their blood sugar levels more efficiently. Wave goodbye to manually entering blood sugar readings in your logbook – or waiting until your next doctor’s visit to review your blood sugar readings! We can now collect, view, and share the information we need to keep our blood glucose numbers within range – anytime, anywhere.

With the Glooko Logbook App, MeterSync Cable, and its bluetooth device, you can download your blood glucose readings directly from your meter to your iPhone or Android. Furthermore, the app will create custom graphs, charts, and averages over a desired period of time – daily, weekly, bimonthly, monthly, 60 days, etc.  Glooko will even generate a report comparing this week’s numbers versus last week’s readings.

Additionally, Glooko sorts your blood sugar numbers by morning, afternoon, and night – giving you better insight to how well you’re managing your blood sugar depending on the time of day. It also has the option of writing notes and events to yourself. Where your numbers off due to a vacation? Were you more stressed at work than usual? Did you try a new diet? Just make a note of it and it will notify you of this event.

Lastly, if you want to brag about your numbers, it gives you the option to “share” a PDF report with others. {I’m sure your mom will appreciate that!} And pricewise, Glooko is very reasonable too. It’s just $59.95 + tax for 12 months.

Check out the sample graphics that I generated from my Glooko app:
