Remote Glucose Monitoring with the Rightest Care App



Remote Glucose Monitoring with the Rightest Care App

When the coronavirus upended the world in early 2020, many people around the world were restricted to their homes or their local area for months at a time. Not only that, but people were more conscious of their health than ever whilst many of us were simultaneously reluctant to go for checkups and expose ourselves to greater risk of contracting the virus. There was at least one positive note to emerge from the pandemic though: it spurred the uptake and advancement of telehealth.

Telehealth encompasses any form of healthcare that takes place remotely. This includes teleconsulting, tele-education/training, telemonitoring and more. Smartphones are being used for more tasks than ever before and apps tailored for healthcare are plentiful. Apps that assist with glucose monitoring and allow data to be shared (e.g. with clinics, hospitals, doctors, family members) may fall into the telemonitoring classification.

Many people with diabetes have been using blood glucose monitoring devices for years. Most modern personal blood glucose monitors come equipped with Bluetooth functionality. This lets users sync their blood glucose test results from their meter to an app on their smartphone for further analysis. This also proves much more convenient since it allows users to scroll through test results on their smartphone touchscreen instead of needing to painstakingly scroll through results on an LCD screen one at a time.

Many established manufacturers have developed apps for use with their products. Bionime is one such company. Several of its Rightest blood glucose meter (BGM) products such as Rightest WizMaxGM700SBGM280B, and GT333 are Bluetooth-enabled and can transmit results to the company’s Rightest Care App. This app is available for both Android and iOS and is featured prominently on the official website.

What is Rightest Care?

A Mobile App to Connect Your Glucose Meter and Smartphone

Using Rightest BGM allows people to get a glucose reading anytime and test anywhere they go. People often test across mealtimes, upon waking, and after exercise. The Rightest Care App assists users in understanding these test results.

At its heart, Rightest Care is a piece of software that acts as a personal blood glucose tracker. Users can take measurements with their Rightest Glucose Meter and sync these via Bluetooth over to the app where they are automatically incorporated into data analysis. Syncing is quick and easy and happens automatically whenever the meter is placed near the phone it is paired with and the app is opened.

A Hub for Glucose Data Management

Powerful, comprehensive data analysis comes packaged inside the app. Users can view and engage with their test data in new ways and form plans of action to manage their diabetes more effectively. Being able to view blood glucose tests as part of a wider picture of your blood sugar patterns, makes real progress much easier.

The Starting Place for New Insights

Getting good insights into your blood glucose levels and what affects them is key for learning how to manage blood glucose more effectively. The Rightest Care app helpfully shows users comparisons across mealtimes and over a full day, the percentage of tests in range at specified times, average glucose levels, a full listing of glucose levels, and more.

What are the benefits of Rightest Care?

Compare blood glucose before and after meals over many days

Rightest Care App users can view their blood glucose before and after meals. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner can be viewed for every day of the week and compared at a glance.

Results are color-coded so they can be understood quickly: green numbers mean the result was in the target range set by the user; red means the test was outside this target range. There should be a rise in blood glucose following eating. However, too high a rise can be an issue. To help make things clear, Rightest Care underlines pairs of results:

  • Pink underlines highlight meals where the change in blood glucose exceeded 60mg/dL. This suggests the sugar or carbohydrate content of the meal was too high.
  • Blue underlines highlight results where the change in glucose failed to exceed 30mg/dL. In this case, the user may have had an unusually small meal.

Results averages 

The average blood glucose result for each time marker is displayed on a helpful bar graph. These can be calculated and displayed for 7, 14, 30, and 90-day periods. Users can identify which times of day they are seeing issues with their blood glucose and can see their progress over time.

Results in range

The percentage of test results above, below, and in the target range can also be viewed for each time marker. It’s encouraging to see how full the green “in target range” component of each bar can become!

Add detail to test results

Results on a glucose meter can have a status marker attached (wake up, before eating, after eating, etc.) but on the app so much more is possible. Additional details like notes, carbohydrates, insulin, and exercise have dedicated input methods. Users can even use their phone’s camera to add pictures of their meals. This additional detail can help remove the mystery behind unexpected results and help people experiment with their diet and diabetes management methods.

Forgetting your meter or having a non-Bluetooth meter isn’t a problem. Test results can be inputted manually.
