A1chronicle Help

It is important for diabetics to track their glucose levels. This app allows you to track:

  • Glucose levels up to four times per day,
  • A1c,
  • Daily calorie, carb and sugar consumption,
  • Medications,
  • Weight and BMI,
  • Exercise and blood pressure

You can customize the app to track as much or as little as your like.  Click on "settings" on the home page to set up the app to your liking.  Uncheck any items that you do not wish to see displayed on the home page, such as blood pressure or some of the glucose readings.  You can still enter values for these.

A great feature of this app is that you can then create reports showing the effect of carbs, sugar, exercise and more on your daily glucose levels.  Reports can be saved as a PDF file and emailed to you or to someone else, such as a health professional.  Click on the menu icon on the home page to access reports and line or bar charts. 

Reports: You can create many reports, such as a glucose report, weight report, nutrition report, medication report or a multiple chart accessing up to six of these values.

Once a report is selected, choose the dates for the report, then click "report".  Once the report is displayed, you can click on "PDF" to create a PDF file, then you can click on "email report" to send a copy to yourself or someone else.  If you set up a default email address on the "settings" page, it will be displayed in the email.  You can change it or use it as is.

Charts: You can also create line or bar charts to instantly track your progress.  These reports and charts can also be emailed for saving and printing.  Click on the "menu" from the home page to access the available charts, such as a glucose chart, weight chart, nutrition chart or a multiple chart accessing up to five of these values.

A database is contained within A1chronicle that includes nutrition facts for over 10,000 foods.  The data was derived from the USDA's nutrition database and also from the websites of various fast food companies.  You can add custom food items to your own private database by clicking the "add food" button on the search food page.  Enter a name that describes your food, such as "Mom's meatloaf".  Enter as many nutrition facts as you have available.  Calories, sugar and carbohydrates are especially important for diabetics.  You can start with a food from the nutrition database, alter as needed, then save it to your custom database.  These entries will be displayed first when searching for food.
