These blood glucose predictions are coupled with actionable, behavioral advice known as Automated Decision Support (ADS).
To use this feature you must:
- Use One Drop mobile on iOS or Android
- Select type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes or prediabetes during app on-boarding, or via "My Account" profile section of the app
When will I receive a blood glucose forecast?
After entering or uploading your very first blood glucose value to the One Drop app! Moving forward, you will receive a pop-up notification after every blood glucose reading and as you continue to manually and/or passively collect other health data points (e.g., food, activity, steps).
One Drop will notify you of your expected blood glucose direction (e.g., BG to rise or fall) for the next 8-hours and couples this prediction with advice—what you can do right now to maintain or achieve healthy blood sugars (e.g., take a 15 minute walk).
How can One Drop make these predictions?
One Drop's machine-learning model gathers data from you, as well as from other users with similar profiles and behaviors. One Drop has over 3 billion data points to pull from, making our predictions extremely accurate.
How accurate are my blood glucose predictions?
One Drop ADS accurately predicts future blood glucose values with 91% of predictions within +/- 50 mg/dL of glucose meter readings and 75% within +/- 27 mg/dL. Overall accuracy improves as more data is fed to the machine learning models, and the accuracy for any given individual improves as he/she enters more personal health data into the app.
I don't want predictions!
Continue tapping “Not Useful” when prompted by the pop-up notifications.
