Diabetes Application – A Sample Report

A couple weeks ago, I presented a teaser of my diabetes application. I’ve been working on it a lot lately, creating GUIs to enter most of the data on my insulin pump and blood glucose meter. But mostly I’ve been creating charts and reports. (Putting data in is much less interesting than analyzing it, in an effort to improve my “control.”)

Here’s one of the reports. It has a bit of everything, including the kitchen sink. The one I’m taking with me to my endocrinologist tomorrow is much more focused. Visualizing all of the data associated with diabetes is kind of tricky, so I’m working on that. More features to come. . . .

(Please, don’t judge me based on my readings. :^) Right now I’m using food to cover my insulin, which is the opposite of how it should work — it seems I never really got switched from the NPH mindset. Getting past that is one of the main reasons why I’m doing in this project.)

I’m committed to releasing everything under some kind of open source license. Everything, that is, except the data and anything that would involve a diagnosis or recommend a particular kind of treatment. I don’t want to be on the hook for FDA approval and all that involves.
