With a multitude of glucose meters on the market, it can sometimes be difficult for endocrinologists to maintain the inventory of software and cables necessary to access all of them. Additionally, combing through a handwritten glucose diary to identify patterns that could help patients with their diabetes management is an outdated process.

David Ahn, MD, creator of the Sugar Streak app for iPhone, believes we can improve diabetes care by giving patients tools that make the monitoring aspect of diabetes care simpler, and maybe adding a dash of fun. The Sugar Streak app encourages users to commit to monitoring their sugar levels regularly, and then rewards them for hitting streaks.
