Blood Sugar Recording? meeshee_s — Jul 27, 2016 02:24PM PDT
I'd love to be able to track my blood sugar #s everyday with MFP along with the rest of my nutrition/exercise... is there a way to do that? It's a bummer using two apps.

Hey thanks for posting your question. Although this is not currently a feature, we will definitely consider it for future updates.
In the meantime, if you would like to keep track of blood sugar levels, many of our users use the “notes” section to keep track of any additional information.
Additionally, you can record your blood sugar levels in the measurement section. However, this section is designed for a single measurement per day. We recommend creating a different measurement category for each time you check your blood levels. For example, Blood Sugar Check 1, Blood Sugar Check 2, etc.
If you’d like to track additional measurements such as body fat percentage, pedometer steps, blood sugar, hips or thighs, you can adjust the measurements you are tracking by logging in to your account on our website at www.myfitnesspal.com.
Each measurement can contain only one value per day, so, for instance, if you wish to track your blood pressure, you would need to add two measurements, one for systolic and one for diastolic. Similarly, if you wish to track your blood sugar more than once per day, we recommend creating an AM Blood Sugar and a PM Blood Sugar measurement, as an example.
Once you’ve logged in, click on “My Home”, then “Check in”, then “Track Additional Measurements”. You’ll be taken to a page where you can add or remove measurements in your account. Any changes you make will be synced to the app the next time the app is connected to the internet.
On the website, these measurements will be visible in the “Check-In” area. In our apps, you’ll find them on the “Progress” page.
