Use Glucomate to stay on top of your waking glucose

Waking glucose - sometimes referred to as fasting blood glucose - is a measure of your blood glucose after an overnight fast. It assumes that you haven’t eaten for many hours leading up to the fasting reading.

Viewing your waking blood glucose over time can give you an indication of overnight management. Waking up at a suitable blood glucose level can go a long way to getting your day off to the right start.

Glucomate can keep track of your waking blood glucose, and plot it in a graph over time for you to look at. Glucomate considers the your first glucose reading after waking as your waking glucose, so long as it is taken within one hour of of your waking time. Whether this comes from a CGM or manual entry doesn’t matter. Sleep information is taken from HealthKit on your iPhone or iPad.

Here’s how you can view your waking blood glucose history on iPhone or iPad:

  1. Open Glucomate, and navigate to the “Averages” tab
  2. Select the date range for which you wish to view waking glucose. For this example we’ll pick 14 days.
  3. Scroll down until you see a “Waking glucose” card

That’s all there is to it! Assuming you have sleeps recorded in Apple Health and corresponding blood glucose data, Glucomate will plot this data nicely for you.
