Thank you!

Close your eyes and think of a white cat. But only by name, because the product that we illustrate to you today is not in any way all sleep and melted, on the contrary.

We mentioned it briefly in our previous article, but now we see more closely this new solution to make Libre a sensor with continuous readings, alarms in case of hyper and hypoglycemia and remote vision. It comes from China and is a further evolution of BluCon, the Californian device that has made so much talk of itself.

Dimensions and weight

The challenge on the scale is all in favour of the newcomer: only 8 grams (0.018 Ib), against the 11 of BluCon (0.024 Ib) battery included.

Unlike other solutions, Miao Miao Miao does not stand on Libre, but simply sits on its side. And this choice allows a much smaller thickness but, above all, leaves the sensor free, without risking detachment or movements that can compromise the readings.

If the BluCon alone has a thickness of 0.39″ (to which you add almost 0.12″ of Libre), Miao Miao Miao measures almost half the size: only 0.30″. The new entry device, although less cumbersome than BluCon, is slightly longer: 1.50″ compared to 1.42″.

Hypermeability

Another advantage of the new born is the water resistance, with an IP67 class. This allows short dives and the possibility of glycemic monitoring even in the case of showers.

Battery

Unlike BluCon, Miao Miao, unlike BluCon, does not need to replace the batteries but requires charging by means of a special magnetic connector: the wallet thanks you. In addition, a skilful design and the use of Bluetooth protocol 4.0, give the device up to 14 days of autonomy that is equivalent to the duration of the Libre.

How to Order Miao Miao

My Miao Miao is orderable here at a cost of 595 yuan, which at today’s rate correspond to about 80 euros but, at present, the site is only available to Chinese users. In case you are an early adopter interested in buying, you could get help with the Google machine translation service (in the official page, however, only Chinese provinces are served). For the time being, the few units issued in Europe – including the one intended for our editorial staff – have been sent by the manufacturer for testing.  Shortly – the company tells us – Miao Miao Miao will also be able to order from Europe.

App

At the time we write, the official app of Miao Miao Miao has already been published, but currently only in Chinese language (the name could be Tomato, if a literal translation is made at the time of international release). In addition, both the “Apple team” of Spike and Android of xDrip are developing the interface to Miao Miao, as you can see also from this first print screen, taken from a device testing the green robot.

Conclusion

If in past years Nightscout has undeniably had the lion’s share of the innovation in unofficial diabetes, in this last year we are witnessing further significant steps forward and, in this panorama, we have the impression that Miao Miao will become a very bright star. Although it is really too early to reach objective conclusions, this Libre reader leaves us with a very good impression. The perceived build quality and the strong team behind the new project make us breathe a more professional air than the rivals. Will it be a true and lasting feeling? The next few weeks and the reactions of early testers including DeeBee. it, as well as the reactions of the first buyers, will give us further answers.

We would like to thank the young Kamil Armacki, a student at Manchester Metropolitan University Business School and followed by youtuber on his Diabetic Energetic channel for support and friendship. Thank you Kamil!

Glimp for Web. From today also shared statistics with diabetes therapist and much more

This article has been translated with an automatic algorithm. We are looking for volunteers to translate our free services and articles into English. If you are interested, please contact us here: info@deebee.it.

Only two weeks have passed since our readers started using Glimp for Web, the latest project by DeeBee. it, the result of careful programming work that allows us to see the FreeStyle Libre sensor’s remote blood glucose in a completely new and extremely easy way. No complicated procedures, but a simple DropBox account and sensor values will be visible from any device.

The many suggestions and the great interest (more than 5000 accesses already made on the portal) have given a new boost to our accelerator. We have added new options and services, useful for both management and data sharing. Obviously, as always, the services are free and extremely simplified, in full DeeBee spirit.

Let’s see in detail what’s new!

Stats

A new button appears in the portal: statistics button. By pressing it, you access the dashboard that provides information about the patient’s blood sugar history.

Summary

The first information is shown on the summary table, which shows the most significant values: average blood glucose, median, percentages that indicate how long we have been in hypoglycemia and hyperglycaemia, standard deviation, and the inevitable glycemia estimated. All this, divided into three columns representing the short, medium and long term.

Distribution

The percentages that, remember, give us a relative representation of the period spent in the target, are then reported visually, through three cakes concerning the last week, the last month and the last quarter.

Percentages

Very useful for correcting both the basal bands (for microinfusions) and the boluses, they follow the three graphs that report the five significant percentiles: the band between 10° and 90° in light colour, the band between 25° and 75° darker and, finally, the demarcation line of the 50th percentile of blue colour. The closer and narrower the bands are, the more homogeneous the blood sugar management is with varying days; the more bands converge towards the blood sugar target, the better the management.

Sharing with diabetes therapist

With the new service, it is possible to share these statistics with your diabetologist: simply provide him with the user and password of his Glimp system (which is based on DropBox, of which we suggest the creation of an ad hoc user). In this case, the statistics will also be available to the doctor at the following address:

www.deebee.it/glimp?mode=stats

Variable range

If your therapy has different ranges, simply access the portal settings and change the hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia thresholds.

International unit of measurement

Given the increasing diffusion of DeeBee. it and Glimp, a final pleasant surprise concerns users from countries where blood glucose values expressed in milligrams per decilitre (mg/dL) are not used, as we do. Also among the settings, it is now possible to change the units of blood glucose measurement in millimoles per litre (mmol/L) which, let’s remember, is the one adopted by the International System and, as such, represents the reference standard worldwide. If mmol/L is selected, the statistics will also be redrawn in the new unit.

Future developments: translation (and the search for translators)

What will the future hold for us? Surely, the ability to view the portal of Glimp for Web also in other languages. We take advantage of this to remind you that on Deebee. it it is already possible to choose the language of view of our articles. To do this, simply choose the language from the side menu “drop-down” in the upper left corner. If you are reading from your smartphone, you can find the “curtain” scrolling towards the bottom.

Are you interested in joining us, helping us in translations? DeeBee. it is constantly looking for volunteers of any nationality who translate articles into their native language.

The portal for remote viewing of FreeStyle Libre blood glucose

DeeBee.it presents the new free web interface for Glimp, with ease and immediacy.

Until yesterday it was impossible, but from today it is enough to turn on your smartphone or PC, open a protected page on the DeeBee. it website and, without having to be technological wizards, to remotely see the blood sugar data collected by FreeStyle Libre with the Glimp app.

After a long and careful programming phase, after various tests and versions, the blood glucose read by simply scanning with an Android smartphone or in CGM by the FreeStyle Libre sensor, can be consulted on your mobile phone (whether Apple, Android, Windows Mobile…), tablet, PC or Smart TV.

The keyword of the new service created by DeeBee Italia is “simplicity”. With the new Glimp for Web portal it is in fact sufficient to enter the same credentials of your Dropbox account on both the Glimp app and the web portal, to access the blood sugar chart in real time. Everything automatically and without having to set up or configure anything.

With each individual reading of the sensor with a smartphone, the value is automatically transferred to the portal, while for those who use Glimp in CGM, then with the help of GlimBee or BluCon, the values are updated every five minutes on their Glimp in Web. It is also possible to set the threshold of hypo or hyperglycemic alarms and the calibrations performed are visible.
Unlike Nightscout, with Glimp for Web every new interface update will take place automatically, as will the release of new functions. Reports are already planned for the future, such as the percentage of blood sugar ranges, the presumed glycata and the historian, all printable for presentation to your diabetes therapist. The user will not have to take charge of any preliminary work: when the new functions are available, the relevant button will appear directly on Glimp for Web.
For now Glimp for Web is in the beta version and is being improved. To tend, the interface will also show the arrow of the blood sugar tendency, the increase in blood glucose compared to the previous value, the setting of the alarm that sounds after not having received the blood sugar for too long and much more.
As always, in the comments or at our email address info@deebee.it, we await your feedback, suggestions or tips to improve as much as possible our new service designed to make diabetes management even easier.
We are looking for volunteer translators who write in English.
