For a really good review of Glucose Buddy accessibility features and limitations I recommend the aninvisibleminority.wordpress.com. The author is legally blind and presents a very detailed review.
The was the hardest review I have written to date. On one hand Glucose Buddy is a well thought out application with features not found on any other app. One the other hand, it is riddled with small problems that seem to have existed for some time without being addressed. With no update to the application in almost a year and major problems with the website, I wonder just how dedicated the developers are to maintaining this application. It does have good points and all the problems can be corrected. A review of the glucose buddy support blog informs that one of the original creators of the application, Matthew Tendler, is no longer an employee of MYLEstone Health, the company that developed the application, although he is still an owner. I have no idea what is going on with MYLEstone health but it appears to me that once Mr. Tendler left, all support and future development for Glucose Buddy left as well. I hope I am wrong. If I am wrong and this application is updated or the website issues addressed I will update this review.
Unless the developers of this app and website correct the cross-browser compatibility issues and correct what I think are problems with how they average so much of the data, I would stay away from Glucose Buddy.
One final comment. When I am done using a website I usually remove all my data. There was no method I could find to quickly delete my account and the data stored on the websites database. I was able to delete one record at a time, however if a user had thousands of log entries I would hate to be them should they decide to remove their information.

Recent headlines about cinnamon are the result of an accidental finding in a Maryland USDA research center. Incredibly, the catalyst was as American as good old apple pie, flavored with -- what else -- cinnamon. Scientists were testing the effects of various foods on blood sugar (glucose) levels. They expected the classic pie to have an adverse effect, but instead they found it actually helped lower blood glucose levels.
The researchers then took their surprising discovery and tested it in a small 60 patient study conducted in Pakistan, reporting in the journal Diabetes Care. All the patients had been treated for type 2, adult onset diabetes for several years and were taking anti-diabetic drugs to increase their insulin output. But they were not yet taking insulin to help process their blood glucose. The subjects were given small doses of cinnamon ranging from as little as a quarter teaspoon to less than 2 teaspoons a day for 40 days.
Did you know: Almost all "ideal body weight" websites use obsolete formulas or tables created in 1979 or earlier.
