The Road to Less Than Optimal Blood Sugar Control is Paved with Good Intentions

For this post I pulled an oldie but goodie out of the archives. I wrote this more than 8 years ago and sadly it's still mostly true today. Even for people using CGM, information that should be easier to consider is kept beyond arms reach by the simple design decision of expecting people to login to a website to review reports. Better tools are coming but they take time.

From my own research, I know that 'pushing' that information to the person in need exponentially increases the likelihood that the information will be considered. For example, what if you received a notification on your phone about a pattern that has been identified? One click away from very useable information and you didn't have to do anything extra for the perk!
