For those who need to monitor their blood sugar levels, it is very important to have an app that helps them track them along with their other health behaviors. Even if you do not have diabetes or other related diseases, it is still important in daily health management, such as reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke, etc. The Fitbit app now has blood glucose tracking to help users monitor their levels. This way, Fitbit wearable device users will be able to see all their fitness and health data in a single app.
Monitoring blood glucose levels for people with diabetes or as recommended by healthy professionals is important to keep track of how it changes throughout the day as affected by things like food, sleep, activity physics, etc. You can set custom ranges to see if you are out of those ranges, adjust your behavior, and get reminders too. You can see trends with easy-to-read charts and data.
However, this function is manual. You will need to record all your information manually. Set the custom range and then regularly record your levels yourself. You can also choose to receive reminders to record your blood glucose levels so you don’t forget to do so. If you are using the LifeScan OneTouch Reveal app, you can connect it and it will automatically import your data. Fitbit says they are also working to connect other meters and apps.
You can allow your Fitbit wearables to receive notifications on your device. For those who subscribe to Fitbit Premium + Health Coaching, it will help your Health Coach adjust their action plan to maintain a healthier lifestyle. Members gain access to more data over a 30-day period and can share the data as part of their Wellness Report for their respective healthcare providers.
