The GlucoSuccess app could be a game-changer for anyone who has pre-diabetes or full-blown type 2 diabetes. It logs your finger-stick glucose values, tracks your diet and physical activity, and makes suggestions for improving your levels. The benefits are tangible — you'll get immediate feedback about how different food choices affect your glucose, and the app reminds you when it's time to test. You can sync the app with fitness trackers, smart watches, digital glucometers, and Bluetooth scales.
