How to share Blood Glucose Data using Apple Health

For your healthcare provider to remotely monitor your blood glucose level, you need to accept their invitation, through email or the Qardio App.

 

To share your blood glucose data with your healthcare provider, you must allow the Qardio App to access your health data via Apple Health. To do this:

• Click the “Q” in the top left corner of the Qardio App to bring up the menu.

• Click “Settings” and turn on “Integrate with Apple Health”.

• The next screen will bring you to the Apple Health menu.

• Scroll down to the bottom section “ALLOW ‘QARDIO’ TO READ DATA:" and turn on Blood Glucose

** Please note that you will only be able to see your blood glucose data in the Apple Health app. You will NOT be able to view your blood glucose data anywhere in the Qardio app at this time.

Once you have accepted the invitation for monitoring, your provider will be able to access your glucose data in one of two ways:

• Use an Apple Health integrated smart blood glucose monitor, which can automatically sync your results with Apple Health.

• Use any blood glucose monitor and enter your data into Apple Health manually using Apple Health's 'Add Data' feature.

 

Using an Apple Health integrated smart blood glucose monitor

You can use any brand of smart blood glucose monitors that is medically regulated and has Apple Health integration. Read the manufacturer's specifications and look for the Apple Health icon. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on taking your measurement and turn on Apple Health integration with the connected blood glucose app. Your data will be automatically synced to the Qardio App and sent to your healthcare provider for remote monitoring.
