1.3 Home
The two most commonly used features are the Magnifying
Glass, used to search for entries (mySugr Pro), and the
Plus Sign, used to make a new entry.
Below the graph you'll see statistics for the current day:
Average BG
BG Deviation
Hypos and Hypers
Below those you can find fields with information about units
of insulin, carbohydrates, and more. These fields are
arranged according to their order on the new entry screen.
Under the graph you see tiles that contain:
blood glucose average (that day)
blood glucose deviation (that day)
number of hypers and hypos (that day)
Insulin ratio (that day)
bolus or mealtime insulin taken (that day)
amount of carbohydrates eaten (that day)
duration of activity (that day)
pills (that day)
weight (that day)
blood pressure (that day)
1.4 Explanation of terms, icons and colors
1. Tapping on the Magnifying Glass icon on your dashboard
allows you to search for entries, tags, locations, etc.
2. Tapping on the Plus Sign allows you to add an entry.
The colors of the elements on the dashboard (3) and the
monster (2) actively react to your glucose levels of the
current day. The color of the graph adapts to the time of day
Each tag in the new entry screen describes a situation,
scenario, some context, a mood, or an emotion. There is a
text description of each tag directly below each icon.
1. Red: Blood glucose not in target range
2. Green: Blood glucose in target range
3. Orange: Blood glucose is not great but ok
The colors used in variable areas of Logbook are as
described above, based on target ranges provided by the
user in the settings screen.
Blood glucose, weight, blood pressure, HbA1c, Ketone
Within the app you see a variety of tiles. There are five
different shapes representing five catagories.
1.5 Profile
Use the side menu to access your profile, settings, and
Change your personal, therapy and application settings. If
you wish, you can enter more specific details about you,
your diabetes type, and your diabetes diagnosis date.
Change password at the bottom if needed.
Enter your name, email address, gender and date of birth. If
you need to change your email address in the future, here is
where it happens. You can also change your password or
log out. Last but not least, you can give your diabetes
monster a name! Go ahead, be creative!
mySugr needs to know some details about your diabetes
management in order to function properly. For example, your
blood glucose units (mg/dl or mmol/l), how you measure your
carbohydrates, and how you deliver your insulin (pump,
pen/syringes, or no insulin). If you use an insulin pump, you
can enter your basal rates, decide if you'd like them
displayed on the graphs, and if you want them displayed in
30-minute increments. If you take any oral medications
(pills), you can enter the names of them here so they are
available to select when creating a new entry. If desired, you
can also enter many other details (age, type of diabetes,
target BG ranges, target weight, etc.). You can even enter
details about your diabetes devices. If you can't find your
specific device, just leave it blank for now – but please let us
know so we can get it added to the list.
Total basal insulin for the 24-hour period is shown in the
upper right hand corner. Tap the green check mark (upper
right corner) to save your basal rates or the “x” (upper left
corner) to cancel and return to the settings screen.
Define your diabetes devices and meds here. Don't see your
device or med on the list? Don't worry, you can skip it – but
please let us know so we can add it. Flip the appropriate
switch to decide if you want sound on or off, if you want
photos enhanced with an awesome filter or not, if you want
information synced with Apple Health/Google Fit, and if you
want to receive a weekly email report and/or newsletter. You
can also switch the estimated HbA1c on and off and change
the settings of the Bolus-Calculator (if available in your

The top right of the graph displays your estimated HbA1c –
assuming you’ve logged enough blood glucose values (more
on that, next). Note: this value is only an estimate and is
based on your logged blood glucose levels. This result can
deviate from laboratory results.
HbA1c - what's behind this important test
In order to calculate an estimated HbA1c, mySugr Logbook
needs an average of 3 BG values per day for a period of 7
days, minimum. Enter more values for a more accurate

7 Import data
7.1 Hardware
Please be sure that your meter is properly connected to your
smartphone. Go to the Bluetooth settings on your
smartphone, turn on your meter, and wait until the two
devices have paired. If you are using the Beurer GL50 Evo
please go into the meter memory to activate Bluetooth.
Select "Supported Devices" from the menu.
Select your device from the list.
Click "Enable" and follow the instructions displayed in
mySugr Logbook.
Following the successful activation of your meter, your BG
values are automatically synchronized with mySugr
Logbook. The synchronization happens every time you
connect the device to your smartphone with mySugr
Logbook open. ATTENTION: The blood glucose units of
measurement (mg/dL or mmol/L) must be identical in the
blood glucose meter and in the settings of mySugr Logbook.
Otherwise, data synchronization is not possible. If the
settings do not match they must be adjusted in mySugr
Logbook to perform data synchronization from the device.
When duplicates are detected (for example, a reading in the
meter memory that was also manually entered into mySugr
Logbook) they are automatically merged.
After all data has been imported you can perform a live
measurement. Go to the dashboard in mySugr Logbook and
then insert a test strip into your meter.
7.2 Import CGM Data
7.2.1 Import CGM Data via CSV or TXT into mySugr
Using a computer, login to your mySugr account at
https://hello.mysugr.com and find “Importer” in the side
menu. Drag the .csv file from your CGM program into the
upload area. The mySugr monsters will crunch the data and
load it into your account. It should only take a moment or
two. Once it’s complete, start mySugr Logbook on your
smartphone. Your CGM data will appear in the graph as
soon as the synchronization is finished.
7.2.2 Import CGM via Apple Health (iOS only)
Make sure that Apple Health is enabled in the Logbook
settings and make sure that sharing for blood glucose is
enabled in the Apple Health settings. Open mySugr Logbook
and the CGM data will appear in the graph. *Note for
Dexcom: The Health app will display the Sharer’s glucose
information with a three-hour delay. It will not display real
time glucose information.
7.2.3 Hide CGM Data
Double tap on the graph to open an overlay control panel
where you can enable or disable visibility of CGM data in
your graph.

“Export”. Once on your screen, tap the button in the upper
right (lower left since iOS 10) to access the options for
