MyFitnessPal, the world’s #1 nutrition and fitness tracking app, and Google Health Connect today announced an integration between the two platforms at this year’s Google I/O developer conference. Individuals diagnosed with type 1 and type 2 diabetes who use continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) tools integrated with Google Health Connect can now see their glucose data directly within the MyFitnessPal app.
Our society will now have the critical ability to understand and visualize how the foods they eat affect their blood sugar levels throughout the day. Prior to this, a person could see spikes in their glucose, but not connect what caused it. Our collaboration with Google builds on our innovation and commitment to bringing cutting-edge technology to consumers as they navigate their health and wellness journeys, especially those suffering from diet-related ailments.”
Tricia Hahn, CEO, MyFitnessPal
MyFitnessPal Android users with selected glucose monitors now have the ability to see the most recent glucose level recorded and to highlight foods that increase, decrease, or keep glucose levels stable. Simply by enabling Google Health Connect glucose monitoring, members can track associations with the food they eat in the MyFitnessPal app and adjust their diets accordingly, ultimately making better dietary decisions to keep glucose levels in range. Premium users who have enabled the timestamp function in their diary will be able to see glucose levels in graphs against time in their food diary items.
After integrating with Health Connect last year, MyFitnessPal allowed users to share nutrition information from their database of foods and track exercise data from other apps. Today’s announcement is a great way for MyFitnessPal to help users understand how the foods they eat can affect their glucose levels. “
While this feature will only be available to Android users currently, MyFitnessPal is committed to fostering collaboration to ensure members have the data they need to make decisions about their health.
