You’ve been diligently logging your diabetes data. The first reward you notice is feeling better. And the second is a clean and well-filled logbook with data. Lots and lots of data....
Are mySugr entries really so important?Yes, each entry really is important. The more data you have, the more meaningful your analysis will be. With the analysis (and some data, a.k.a. your entries), we give you a quick and easy overview of how your diabetes therapy has been lately. Has it been well-behaved in the last days, weeks, months?
Introducing mySugr’s analysis featureThe answer is just a few “swipes” away. To get into the analysis, simply swipe left on your home screen. Now you can see your averages for the last 7 days on the first screen. Keep swiping to see 14, 30 and 90 days.
Ready for an example?Let’s take a look at the 90 days / quarterly analysis. This is my personal favorite and is really helpful when I’m sitting in the doctor’s office.
- your diabetes monster
- time period
- BG average
- standard deviation
- number of hypers and hypos (according to your targets)
- average carbs per day
- average bolus insulin per day
- total amount of activity
Looks nice, but are there also numbers?Sure, of course. Do you see that intriguing little arrow on the top right of each graph segment? Do you have any guesses what happens when you tap on one? Give it a try! Here are all of the stats for that block. You’ll also find the ratio of bolus/basal (or long-acting) insulin and the ratio of food versus correction insulin. These ratios can help you decide if you need to troubleshoot your basal rates or look for patterns where you might be correcting highs a lot. I can also drag the graphs up and down to compare each quarter to the last. Notice how the top row of stats “stick” so that it’s easy to compare? The same principles apply to the 7, 14, or 30-day analysis. Simple, quick and clear.
