iBGStar Blood Glucose Meter just arrived.
My insurance wouldn’t cover this meter, so big thanks to member Marcel who sent me his extra.
I really like not having to write down my readings, it shouldn’t be a big deal, but for some strange reason, I just am not very consistent at recording.
I am currently using the BGstar app. More on that in a few days.
The size is great, really small, and it works without a phone as well.
So far, fun, nicely designed product, no problems. The software could be a bit more elegant, will probably switch to mySugr soon, which has recently announced device compatibility.
automation of repetitive tasks seems like a great idea. Of course the whole point of logging is to motivate positive behavior (staying on schedule, proper use of medication, exercise) and applying that info to better action in the future.
I am wondering if having everything automated will lead to more or less responsibility,
At the moment though I am enjoying having my value logged automatically. Now if only my Insulin dosage and exercise was logged automatically.
Emperra has incorporated automated Insulin logging, so they should have some data available soon as to the effect on user behavior.
