The iBGStar® Diabetes
Manager Application

An overview of the iBGStar Diabetes Manager app

IBGStar seamlessly integrates with the iBGStar Diabetes Manager application. This app for your iPhone® or iPod touch® combines the latest in interface design, diabetes data management, and mobile technology — to help you better manage your diabetes.

Whenever you take a reading with your iBGStar while attached to your iPhone, it automatically syncs your data with the iBGStar Diabetes Manager app. So your data always goes wherever your mobile device goes. In addition, this app offers:

  • Tracking of blood sugar readings, carb intake, and insulin doses
  • Blood glucose tags (for example, mealtimes and exercise)
  • Integrated data management with dynamic graphing
  • Shareable data with your family or healthcare team
Scorecard

Scorecard

On the home screen, you'll see your most recent scorecard information. The scorecard itself is divided into three tabs, allowing you to track glucose readings, carbs and insulin information.

Besides synchronizing data from iBGStar, the app also gives you the option of manually adding a reading (from the doctor's office, for instance). To manually enter a reading, touch the Add button at the bottom of the app screen. Enter your blood sugar reading, along with any notes you wish to add.

One of the nice features of this app is the ability to tag your reading's relationship to meals. You can set your meal schedule, but your schedule may vary on certain days. So you can manually choose to tag your reading as pre- or post-breakfast, lunch and dinner. Night is also an option.
