GlucoSuccess is evaluating the relationship between health behaviors and blood glucose control in adults with type 2 diabetes. It provides resources for participants to manage their type II diabetes while simultaneously collecting data through surveys as well as phone-based sensors. Participants provide information in surveys delivered through the app and also enter their blood glucose data. They are also asked to use LoseIt to track their diets; GlucoSuccess then pulls information on carbohydrates, calories, and sugar intake through HealthKit. Finally, it also collects information on activity using the iPhone’s accelerometer.
