Use Glucomate to check your waking glucose

Posted by Zach Simone on September 26, 2023 · 1 min read

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.

It can be handy to keep an eye on your waking blood glucose, as you may find that certain levels mean you feel better and have a better start to the day. Having good control of your blood glucose overnight can also set you up for a strong day with a good time in range percentage.

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 with Glucomate:

  1. Open Glucomate, and scroll down until you see “Sleep”
  2. Tap on it, and you’ll be shown more information about the sleep
  3. Scroll down until you see a “Waking glucose” card

That’s it! If you have sleep and blood glucose recorded in Apple Health, Glucomate is able to present this information to you.
