Measuring your glucose level can help you and your doctor control diabetes and its many complications. We suggest that persons with diabetes begin keeping a daily log of their glucose readings. It's a good idea to take readings at different times of day: the ideal glucose levels are: 70 to 130 mg/dL (4 to 7 mmol/L) before meals, and less than 180 mg/dL (10 mmol/L) 1 to 2 hours after a meal.
The Glucose Tracker simplifies glucose data logging. The software automatically saves glucose level, relationship to the meal, and time of measurement. In addition to being a convenient data logger the software is also a voluble tool for glucose level longitudinal trends analysis. This longitudinal analysis may help you and your doctor decide on the best medicine and help adjust daily drug dosage.
- The intuitive interface for data logging.
- Oversized numbers for easy data entry.
- Monitor the changes of glucose over time on the longitudinal graphs.
- Trending over any time interval (currently not available on Palm and Smartphone).
- The Calendar view shows the maximum and minimum glucose levels day by day. The calendar automatically identifies and marks days with Good, Borderline, and Abnormal glucose levels.
- The History display allows one to view all historic data.
- Comments such as sickness or stress stress can be easily entered from a drop-down box (currently not available on Palm and Smartphone).

- You can save all data into a text file for copying to PC or sharing with your physician.
You save all data into a CSV file (comma delimited text file) for backup, archival, and editing.
- You can edit the CSV file on the desktop PC with Excel, Notepad, or any other text editing software.
- You can load data from the CSV file into the Tracker software.
- The tracker allows switching between mg/dL (milligrams/deciliter used primarily in the USA) and mmol/L (millimol/liter used outside the USA) at any time
- Pocket PC Glucose Tracker 3.8 or later is compatible with Desktop PC Glucose Tracker all versions.
- To transfer data from your mobile device to Desktop PC: 1. Save data into CSV file on mobile device. 2. Transfer the CSV file to Desktop PC. 3. Open the CSV file with the Glucose Tracker software on Desktop PC.
