New Feature: Barcode Scanner

A big part of diabetes management is testing and tracking your blood glucose (BG) — but without the proper context, you may never fully understand why your glucose levels are up, down or in range. There are numerous factors that can affect your glucose, and tracking your food is one step you can take to begin to get a clearer picture of what is impacting you the most.

In order to make diabetes management easier for you, we are constantly looking for ways we can improve the way you track food, medication, and activity in our Glooko mobile app. In a recent release, we enhanced the way you can add events (hello, multi-add!) — and now, we are making food entry even better with an exciting new feature…Barcode Scanning!

You have access to a Barcode Scanner in the Glooko mobile app to make tracking your daily food items a breeze. Put the days of entering your entire nutrition label line by line behind you and let Glooko do the work for you.

Here’s how it works!

Once you have your food items (and any other item you want to track) added to Glooko, you will be able to see all of your data together. This level of detail can help you see how certain foods or activities are impacting your BG.

So, get to scanning and let us know if you have any comments, questions or feedback by emailing us at!
