I’m a diabetic who has been able to keep my condition under control through diet and exercise. I was diagnosed 10 years ago and since that time I’ve become pretty lax on checking my blood sugar levels as regularly as I should. Ok I’ll be honest, I’m lucky if I check my blood sugar once every couple of months. I’ve gotten off the rails a little bit health-wise and am looking for ways to get back on. This little gadget from iHealth looks like something that might motivate me to check my blood sugar more often. It’s the Align, a tiny FDA approved blood glucose meter that plugs directly into the earphone jack of an iOS or Android device. Blood glucose readings are logged so that you can then view trends and statistics for a span of 7, 14, 30 or 90 days. The mobile app also can give you medication reminders and keeps track of test strip quantity and expiration dates for you.The iHealth Align is priced at a very reasonable $16.95 and test strips are priced at $12.50 for 50 strips.
