Your iPhone or iPad is a powerful device. It’s an old saying, but there truly is an app for everything.

When you take a blood glucose reading, what do you do with it? Write it down in a notebook? Add it to a note on your phone? Nothing and hope you’ll remember it later?

When figuring out what works for you, we believe it’s important to find a solution that allows you to easily recall this information later. Relying on memory is fraught, and writing it down on paper somewhere may mean the data isn’t available to you when you need it.

Recording this information in an app on your phone can be a great way to ensure that every reading is captured. Especially so if the app puts the data into HealthKit on your iPhone or iPad, as then it can sync across devices, and even be accessed by third-party apps - such as Glucomate - which can then provide interesting insights into the data.

And sure, you could open the Health app each time you need to record, search for “blood glucose”, and type it in… but we think Glucomate offers an even better approach to recording your blood sugar readings on your iPhone, iPad, or even Apple Watch. Glucomate provides quick-entry buttons on all devices, with a beautiful and clear interface that allows you to input your latest reading, and even add metadata such as meal timing.

Every reading entered into Glucomate is stored in HealthKit on your device, which is a reliable, safe, and privacy-conscious place to store health data. Glucomate then uses HealthKit to read your blood sugar data and history back and give you giving you detailed insights and intereresting graphs and trends about your glucose data.
