How interested are you in using a Web-based tool to analyze blood sugar data?

Poll dates: September 3 - 10, 2000
Total Votes: 649

With blood glucose meters having memories capable of storing a hundred or more glucose values and interfacing to a computer, you now have the ability to analyze blood glucose readings using sophisticated software tools. Graphs help you see patterns in blood sugars that might not otherwise be apparent, and statistical analysis produces reports that can help predict your next HbA1c measurement. The goal for all these tools is to help you achieve tighter blood glucose control.

There are many software packages that can help you computerize your meter, and there are now a number of companies offering web-based analysis tools. Based on this poll, 83% of our readers are at least somewhat interested in using a web-based tool to help them analyze their blood glucose data.
