Blood Glucose Stats

A person without Type 1 Diabetes has an average blood glucose reading of 120. The graphic shows whether I am above, below, or at average. Leveraging an open source project called Nightscout I am able to scrape the data from the continous glucose monitor that I wear on my body. I hope to develop analytics and insights into glucose readings to help Type I Diabetics better manage their Diabetes.


Let’s work together to accomplish something great!
