Add events (foods, insulins, medications, exercise, and comments)

You can easily create events to track your food intake, insulins, medications, exercise, and custom text comments. Your food items, insulins, medications, exercise, and custom text notes are viewable in your History View, ordered by time and alongside your glucose and other lifestyle data. This helps you see how your food, insulin, medications, exercise, and other lifestyle data impact your blood glucose levels.

 

First, navigate to the Quick Add Menu.

From any screen on the Glooko app:
  • Click the + symbol at the bottom middle of the screen.
Second, adjust the date and time of the event if needed.
  • The timestamp of the note is shown at the top. Click on the timestamp to change it to the desired date/time (the current date/time will be selected by default).

Next, add the event information.

Lastly, you can edit or delete an existing event.
