Palo Alto, CA– One of the most sizable issues with present-day data tracking is that we have every imaginable way of tracking our personal data, but we haven’t figured out a way to make that data improve our lives. Glooko is tackling the “so what” in the health tracking movement and taking steps towards actionable data for diabetics.
The new app, Glooko, syncs blood glucose meter data to your mobile device (iOS or Android) and brings that data to life. The app is able to log dietary habits, insulin levels, and physical activity. And since physical activity is such a common trigger for drastic drops in blood sugar, diabetics that track their physical activity are able to view how it affects their levels and make informed adjustments as needed.
Not only is the data that is collected from Glooko’s app beneficial to adding a new level of insight into a diabetic’s personal lifestyle decisions, but it can be helpful for their healthcare providers as well. Sharing this data with healthcare providers can improve the provider-patient communication and help drive a more personalized and workable diabetes management plan. Glooko is a perfect tool for diabetic patients that may be considered high-risk, but can also serve the practical needs of average patients
