“Blood sugar monitoring is one treatment for diabetes. Monitoring blood glucose is achieved by using a blood glucose meter. Your blood sugar levels are always changing, but with this meter, you can learn your blood glucose level at any moment in time. It is unhealthy to maintain a too high or too low blood glucose level. Monitoring your blood sugar tells you if you are in your target range. Knowing your blood glucose level lets you know what you need to do to correct an imbalance. If your level is too low, you can eat something to bring it up. If it is too high, you can exercise to bring it down.” These basic facts form the opening paragraphs of the article “What Are the Benefits of Blood Sugar Monitoring?” written by John P. Gross and contributed to eHow.com.
This application provides a tracker that will allow you to record your blood sugar level and maintain a log of up to thirty recordings. You can take this record with you to consult with your health care provider, or easily email your record to yourself or your doctor.
The Main display provides a summary of High, Low, and Average of your recorded levels. Levels and comments are entered and displayed on this screen. A detail chart showing date, time, level, and an optional comment is one of two display options. The second option is a bar graph of recorded blood sugar levels. The user can switch between these two views by long pressing the Main tab at the bottom of the screen. The “?” button gives a brief explanation of this process. Pressing the Ok button without a level entered into the input text box will produce a momentary display of instructions.
The Edit tab navigates the app to a display allowing all recorded measurements and comments to be changed or deleted. This tab is not accessible when there is no data currently recorded. Editing is accomplished using standard dialog boxes.
The Mail tab provides the capability to email the content of the main page and data summary. The device being used must be configured for email for this operation. The user only has to enter an email address in the TO textbox and select the mail button.
The Color tab allows a choice from twenty-six different color schemes. The selection is made by a simple tap of a radio button on the row of colors desired. This will change the background, borders, and text colors on all four screens of the application, with the exception of buttons and input text boxes.
