Thank you for taking the time to contact us. We will definitely consider adding reminders for your added measurements for an additional update. What you could do for now is, since the app does have “meal” logging reminders (via the settings page), you could create a new meal category and label it “blood sugar”. You could then track this option on your main food page by adding it in as a food item using a custom food. You can then set your reminders to remind you to log an entry into your “blood sugar” meal category.

To add to or change your meal name categories, log into your account on our website at Sign into the members log in area, using the same username and password you use to log into the app. Once you’ve logged in, click on “My Home”, then “Settings”, then “Diary Settings”. At the top of that page is an area where you can change your meal names as well as add two additional meals if you’d like.

Once you’ve saved the changes to your meal names, the next time the app automatically syncs with our website (when there is a valid internet connection), the new meal names will also be reflected in the app.

Bear in mind that this is a global change to all days of your diary. It is not currently possible to have different meal names on different days.

Please see this article for more information on creating new Food items:

In the app, you can access notifications under the Notification Inbox which will be the bell icon in the top left corner on the Home Page.

Hope this helps,
