Blood Sugar Chart

    Working on a way to visualize blood sugar readings for diabetics in a way that makes sense. I grouped the data by days and didn't spread them out like most examples I've seen as the selected day will populate the lower section by before & after each meal. I also highlighted the lows & highs in an effort to influence users to stay within their range. You can also click to see the standard spreadsheet of exact times. From there you can send to your doctor or whomever. Hopefully this will be live within the next few months.

    That was a mouth-full.

    Check out the big photo and full shot.

    Are you getting any feedback on this from actual diabetics? Just curious.

    Making raw data useable = awesome. Looks like a fun project. Love the results so far.

    I like the subtle gradient thingy's that go with the orange dots!

    And, I'll just leave this here:

    Excellent stuff :) Looking nice, too.

    I'm not sure whether you're only designing, or have a hand in the dev side of this, but the one thing I'd love is if you could cater to blood/glucose measurements used in countries other than the US (If you're not, already?). US = mg/dl, UK = mmol/l.

    I've not found a nice UK b/g plotter app yet, and all the better ones developed over in the US don't support the b/g measurements us Brits use, which may be the case for the majority of the rest of the world, too.

    Will be keeping an eye on this :)

    @Glynn Smith yes, will definitely be adding that. I assumed that's what @Erica Schoonmaker was alluding to in her comment as well. But as this is just the first rev, my lazy minimalist designer tendencies posted it on dribble before adding those small, but VERY important details.

    Love it! Agree with Glynn, mmol/l would be nice for us that don't use mg/dl.

    Very nice, and of all iPhone apps, it's nice tackling an actual problem for once. I added this shot to my patterns library (http://www.flickr.com/photos/nwodt_cobalt/6809596907), let me know if you want it removed.

    Well I'm diabetic and the owner of a user interface design studio so I guess that would make me something of an expert on both parts of this...

    One thing that's important to diabetics is to see some sort of average. I would add in an interface that let's you see your glucose level average for certain time frames: 1 month, 2 months, etc.

    Also if you're below 45 you're basically dying or going through hypoglycemic shock. Most diabetics will be up past 100.

    The circles aren't intuitive as you can't tell what the colors mean or sizes. Why are some small or large and why would they be next to each other?

    Date would look better with double digits 04.

    Also I would make the day's vertical line a different color than blue so there's contrast unless you're showing that line as a daily average which would make sense but still offers no contrast.

    Just some thoughts.

    @The Skins Factory Thanks for the great feedback.

    I was exploring keeping an overall average on a different page, but I'll see if I can work it in here.

    Yes, 45 is extremely low, although the data is real. The dots however aren't placed correctly. Thanks for calling that out.

    The colors & sizes aren't supposed to have any other meaning other than to highlight when you are high or low, in an effort to influence you to work at getting back in range.

    Well if you want to influence someone to take action then make that element animated. Maybe have it pulse like radar in round waves. I'll be uploading a couple of shots tomorrow showing what we used for pulse fx when a user taps and holds a scrubber. Can be slow too, doesn't need to be frantic. Though you could have different pulse speeds to show the level of danger. Slow for blue when you're at a good glucose level and faster when you're way too high.

    @The Skins Factory Mind = Blown. I dig it!
    I'd be kind of worried that there might be too much going on, but if it is subtle enough, it just might work. I'll keep an eye out for your shot.
