My Diabetes Home is Getting a Makeover
Check out the fresh, new look to some of your favorite features. While we’re very excited about all of the new features coming to My Diabetes Home, we are also thrilled to introduce you to the fresh, new look coming to the features you currently use. Most of these features will work very similarly but will just look better, cleaner and be more user-friendly! Take a look at the side-by-side comparisons below to get a feel for how these features will appear very soon.
The New SidebarWe took the classic toolbar and flipped it on its side! The sidebar makes accessing what you need faster and simpler.
- Just like the old toolbar, the new sidebar is where you can access any tool you may need.
- Having access to everything on the side of your screen means no more scrolling to the top to find the next tool you need!
mySugars – Sugar LogJust as before, you can either log your sugars from the dashboard… Or you can log them through your Sugar Log, which holds all of your numbers over time. One difference in the new Sugar Log is the apple icon:
- A full apple indicates your blood sugar reading before your meal.
- An apple core indicates your blood sugar reading after your meal.
myNumbersThe old graphs that represent your different health numbers (A1C, weight, blood pressure, etc.) simply chart your data… The new graphs featured in My Diabetes Home 2.0 are much more interactive. For example, here is a possible graph of your logged A1Cs:
- If you hover over a specific A1C, the number and date it was logged are visible.
- Each A1C is marked as high (red), low (yellow), or in your target range (green).
- Tip: In the new mySugars section, the colors are reversed, meaning your low blood sugar will appear red. This is because we use the color red to indicate the most dangerous range. So, a high A1C reading is more dangerous than a low A1C and therefore is indicated by the color red. To read more about the new mySugars graph, check out this blog.
