In-depth reviews of the mySugr Diabetes Logbook app.

Clinical review



Reviewer
: Angela Lambie, Pharmacist, Waitemata District Health Board
Date of review: April 2020
Version: 3.64 (Apple) 
Comments: The app has good functionality and if it pairs well with your blood glucose meter, your data would automatically be included. 
Safety concerns: It pairs with Accu-Chek, Eversense and also with fitness apps such as Google Fit. The HbA1c results are displayed in mmol/mol which may be confusing if you are used to viewing your HbA1c as a percentage.
New Zealand relevance: The app can estimate your HbA1c based on blood glucose results over the past 7 days. This records HbA1c in mmol/mol which is different to the New Zealand recommendation of a percentage so may be confusing for some users.

The app has a coach available via monthly subscription where diabetes educators respond to questions based on your data and queries. This is managed by a US-based team of experts and their advice may differ from advice of your own health professional.

Comments: This app is useful as a log for recording blood glucose levels, activity, meals and carbohydrate amounts. It is easy to enter data and store records in one place.
Safety concerns: None. 
New Zealand relevance: The units of measure for blood glucose and weight can be customised to the units used in New Zealand: blood glucose in mmol/L and weight in kilograms. HbA1C is recorded in mmol/mol and not as a percentage, which is the current New Zealand recommendation.
