Recently, Sirma Medical Systems released an API that allows other apps to send data to Diabetes:M. Two Android apps picked up the challenge and users can now send their Freestyle Libre sensor information or Nightscout data to Diabetes:M seamlessly.
The first app is an unofficial add-on called Libre Scan. With it, you can scan your sensor and save the reading directly to Diabetes:M. To use this add-on, you first have to request access to Diabetes:M app. Enable NFC scan on your mobile device and start the sensor with the original FreeStyle Libre reader. For better accuracy, it’s best to use calibration
IMPORTANT: Glucose values shown in the app are estimated values, based on extrapolation of the sensor data. This is because the sensor measures the interstitial fluid glucose, which reflects the blood sugar in 15 minutes delay. Values in this app and the original reader may differ because they use different algorithms to estimate the current blood sugar level. This app can be configured to use calibration, so it can compensate the sensor’s measurement deviation.
The second app to connect and automatically transfer data to Diabetes:M is the popular Glimp. Through it, you can import all your scan and read data seamlessly. This is particularly useful if you are a Nightscout user since you don’t have to manually import all your CGM entries. The app also reads data from Freestyle Libre and Freestyle Libre Pro sensors. All you need to do is to open Options -> Remote glucose monitoring -> Diabetes:M. Tap on Connection. Diabetes:M will display Data Access Request screen where you can allow the access to the Diabetes:M data.
We hope you find these new opportunities useful in and easy to implement in your daily routine.
