Description

Juggluco is an app for people with diabetes who use an Abbott Freestyle Libre 2 sensor. These sensors can send every minute the current glucose values via Bluetooth to an android phone. Abbott's Librelink app version 2.5.3 uses these values only for glucose alarms. Juggluco uses these values to display them on the screen and saves them to display them in a curve. To this curve other numbers relevant to glucose management can be added. You can search for such numbers and glucose values. Juggluco has low and high glucose alarms, medication reminders and generates some summary statistics.
The aim of Juggluco was to give much more room to the display of the glucose curve, so that it is easier to see what the glucose level was at a particular moment; for example before the meal the previous day. The curve takes in the whole screen in landscape mode. You can make menus visible by touching an open spot of the screen. The width of the screen is divided into four parts and touching one such fourth opens a different menu. The curve can be scrolled back and forth by moving back and forth over the screen. Scale can be changed.
To use Juggluco you don't need to uninstall Abbott Librelink app, so you can keep your old data and use them beside each other and you can compare the values Juggluco generates with the once of Abbott's Librelink app. To enable Juggluco to get a Bluetooth connection with the sensor, you have to scan the sensor a few times while Juggluco is in the foreground. Bluetooth should be enabled and android requires you to give location permission to Juggluco. The connection of other apps or devices with the sensor should be broken by disabling alarms and closing them. After scanning the sensor with Juggluco, Librelink will not try to re-enable a connection with the sensor and it's alarms will never work again with this sensor, but you can use Juggluco's alarms.
