Free Blood Sugar Reminder & Tracker App Features

Blood sugar reminder & tracker apps work the same way as medication reminders -- but instead of selecting a medication, you select your test strips. You can also use the MedSimple free blood sugar log, reminder & tracker app, to keep track of your diabetes medications as well as medications used to treat your other health conditions. This article will focus on using the MedSimple Dose Reminder feature to organize your blood sugar testing schedule.
Med List: You can use the MedSimple free blood sugar log, reminder & tracker app’s med list feature to list all of your medications and instructions to go with them. This is where you can add your blood sugar testing schedule.
Add your test strips by selecting (+) to add a new medication. Select the name of your blood sugar testing meter. The app will then prompt you to “Select dosage form for the medicine.” You should select “test strip.” There will be no dose strength like there is for your other medications. The next question will be “How much do you take?” You should select 1, since you will use 1 strip each time you test. Next, you will be asked “How often do you take it?” This is how often you test. For example, you could select 3 times per day. Finally, you can enter any notes doctor may have told you, your prescriber, or the pharmacy where you fill your test strips. You can also enter any medications you take for your diabetes or other medical conditions in this section. This is one of the many amazing features that makes MedSimple the best free blood sugar log, reminder & tracker app for Android, iPhone & other mobile devices.

Here is a sample med list:
Freestyle Lite Glucose Meter, 1 test strip 3 times per day
