Fitbit has added a blood glucose monitoring feature to its fitness application.
The glucose tracking feature is non-invasive as it requires users to log or import their daily blood glucose levels and view it in relation to things like exercise, sleep, and diet.
At the moment, people who use the OneTouch Reveal app by LifeScan can automatically import their data. Furthermore, Fitbit is working on integrating other apps and meters to make the feature accessible to more people.
This glucose tracking feature will help people living with diabetes – and others who need to monitor their blood sugar – manage the disease and keep it within control.
It bears mentioning that this feature is not a substitute for a doctor’s diagnosis. Also, you shouldn’t base treatment on it without first talking to a doctor; Fitbit has a disclaimer to this effect.
