1) Easy setup without using your Dexcom password, just add Sugarmate as a Follower.

7) An infinitely scrolling history of all of your sugar levels (starting 24 hours before you start using the app).
8) Additional notifications like Steady Above Normal, Predictive High and Predictive Low.
9) Export and email your readings and activity to an Excel spreadsheet.

Dexcom should learn from this app...


This is my first review of ANY tool or software for the iPhone. I am 1 month new to the Dexcom G5 and am sick of the Dexcom support team or lack there of (too many UNDESIRED FEATURES in Dexcom tools and phone only based tech support)! This free tool fills almost every hole left by Dexcom. The only bad comment I can make is it doesn’t use your old Health data so you have to use the tool so long term stats make sense. The free tool has easy to use food (carbs!) look-up that has really helped me level out my undulations....

Heck even the prediction prevented me from spiking low a couple times now (totally missed by Dexcom!)....

This tool is a must **companion tool** for anyone with a Dexcom G5!!! I more often read it instead of the Dexcom app. It is not a HACKER tool to get more battery life or sensor use, but a tool that will help you better use the Dexcom CGM data and help you control your diabetes better than before....

Nice app, could use some a couple of tweaks


Has some nice features that the Dexcom app is definitely missing. Predictive low And infinite scroll on the graph are my favorites. I wish I could zoom the main graph like I can in the Dexcom app (which has the option to show 3, 6, 12 or 24 hours). Pinching in or out like zooming on a photo would be cool. I also wish it had the standard low/high alerts that Dexcom has. I am using it to follow my wife's blood sugar, so I really don't want to have both this and the Dexcom apps open all the time, but I have to due to the lack of these standard alerts. Also would be cool if the average tile could be set to 24 hours.

Game changer


Love this app. I use it for my 8 year old T1 and it has replaced our log book. It has every feature I was looking for in the Dexcom app. The only frustrating part of this app that I would love to see resolved is how you enter the carb number when entering food. The slider eliminates some of the numbers (like 15 which is our most used number.) It would be helpful to be able to just type in the number. Thank you for making a difficult and all consuming disease a little bit easier!
