The App That Makes It All Happen

I have already heralded the arrival of the Sanofi iBGStar® and told you about its many redeeming features.

Today, we are going to take a closer look at the App that makes this little meter really shine.

The iBGStar® Diabetes Manager App can be purchased for free from the App Store and can be used in conjunction with the iBGStar® or without - if you want to manually input your BGLs and additional data.

This modern, innovative tool - when used with the iBGStar® blood glucose meter - gives you convenient, on-the-run access to data to help you manage your diabetes.

You can track blood glucose levels
You can track carbohydrate intake

You can track insulin doses
You can tag readings for pre and post meals and night time.  
There is also the ability to add notes to each blood glucose level.
Food Information
Activity information
Insulin Information
Dosage Information
Other information
You can even add your own notes to suit. We have added several such as Pizza, Soccer, Basketball, Forgot to Bolus, Temp 100%, Temp 200%, Temp Off, Sleep In, Social Day and Correction Override.  Once that note is attached to the relevant record, it can either be kept for future use or deleted.

The App allows you to view and analyse your data through Trend Charts, a Logbook and Statistics for various time periods.  You can also share your data - this will be especially relevant to send to your healthcare provider.  We also use it for C to send data to me when she is away.

All in all - the Sanofi iBGStar® has everything you could possibly need to make your diabetes management just that little bit easier - and certainly more fun.  I highly recommend that you take a look at this little beauty and give it a go.
