Blood glucose tracking involves methods and tools to measure blood glucose levels, commonly in the context of diabetes but also by non-diabetic users. A variety of tools exist to measure blood glucose levels, including fingerstick testing and continuous glucose monitors.

Tools to track blood glucose[edit | edit source]

  • Freestyle Libre: A common continuous glucose monitoring method. Individual Libre sensors can be worn for 14 days and record for the whole time period. Sensors can be read with a dedicated reader or a smartphone with NFC capabilities. Access to them requires a prescription in the US, but are sold over-the-counter in Europe.
