Mountain View, California and Gothenburg, Sweden – November 14, 2016 – Glooko, the leader in diabetes remote patient monitoring, today released its annual, comprehensive diabetes data report based on over 4.3 billion deidentified diabetes data points.

The Report is designed to provide key insights about global glycemic patterns, insulin usage, and blood glucose testing habits. “Glooko’s visibility to a broad set of people with diabetes gives us the unique ability to provide compelling benchmark data about the glycemic patterns of people with diabetes, including which days people, on average, tend to experience hyper and hypoglycemia,” said Rick Altinger, CEO of Glooko.
Some of the insights in the Report include:
- People in Canada check blood glucose the most, while people in Belgium check blood glucose the least amongst countries included in the report
- June 1st is the best day of the year in terms of glycemic control, while January 1st is the worst
- People in Canada trend towards the highest Average BG among those in the report, while people in Belgium trend towards the lowest Average BG
- People in Australia experience the evening with the most continuous sleep as measured by the least blood glucose checks that evening, Canada and the Netherlands come in 2nd and 3rd respectively
- Over the course of the last year, over 7431 liters of insulin were administered to our user base – that’s the equivalent to 92 bathtubs!
