Glucose Buddy App Review

The Glucose Buddy App is a data storage utility developed by Azumio Inc. for diabetic patients. This app is available for free on any iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch product with iOS 4.0 or later, as well as all Android devices. This mobile app easily keeps track of the blood glucose readings that are manually recorded from the user’s glucose monitor. It even allows users the option to enter productive notes such as “blood sugar elevated because of high carb lunch” so that their personal health record is more complete.

This diabetic app also gives users the option to record the name and dose of their medications, along with the corresponding time they were taken each day. Once a drug/dosage combination is entered, it is saved so that users must only select the medication from their list of previously entered products. Additional free features provided by this app include daily food, activity, and HbA1c logs, as well as charts that compare weekly and monthly log recordings. Another helpful feature is the ability of the app to send out push notifications in order to provide users with reminders and alarms when it is time for blood glucose testing and/or medication administration. A more advanced “Pro” version of this app is available for purchase at $6.99, which includes additional log options for blood pressure and weight and eliminates in-app advertisements.

Glucose Buddy is an easy-to-use journal app specially individualized with each patient’s diabetic history. Users have the ability to print out their log results to bring with them to their doctor’s office by syncing the logs to their account and then accessing them online. One drawback is that the app relies heavily on the patient to record this data accurately, so failure to do so will result in incomplete data sets. To get started, simply download the app and then go online to create your free account. For more information on this app, please visit www.glucosebuddy.com.
