No Insulin data input field

I was urged by the Medtronic Guarrdian Connect team to use this app. I was very surprised to see that it has a gazzilion food inputs to choose from and log meals but nowhere to input Insulin dosage and times. How can it analyze your diabetes trends on meal choices alone? And yes, for an experienced 40 year diabetic, it’s Insights are pretty lame. Sorry, developers, you’ve got work to do. I DO love my Guardian Connect CGM! Has saved my life from severe disabling under 30 glucose levels with ease of use tech. This companion app, though, needs some fixing.

Medtronic collecting data...

Seems rather strange that there is only 1 recent 5 star rating, probably Medtronic representatives. How is it possible that so many real world experiences giving 1 star, having very specific good advice goes unanswered and not addressed, only to be followed by someone giving an almost breathtaking marketing response.

Also that this product is dated 2018 seems Medtronic made an app to collect data but they have not really listened (large corporations rarely do) you & your data are the product here and not important if the application gets fixed or functions better, or they would listen and have regular updates and done do by now.

In my opinion in the past you could keep your personal Medtronic health data on your pc, private between you the physicians & hospital but now everything is on Medtronic’s cloud, seriously hampering our personal health privacy, where they can share with partners and that partner could be sold with your data along with it. I find it criminal they don’t have the option to have our privacy paramount should you decide you don’t want to use their cloud services. And now your hospital who kept that information private shares everything with this multinational corporation as their in-house program has been closed and they are forced to share all our data with Medtronic. In my opinion criminal

Need improvements

As an engineer I was pretty excited to leverage AI to manage my diabetes. However, this application require a lot of time to enter data that is somehow duplicated with the guardian sensor app and most of the time generates trivial recommendations, e.g., ‘a low is expected in next 4 hrs,’ which is pretty much expected with any diabetic unless there is carb intake in between. Therefore after 3 months I have determined that it does not add any value to my treatment and stopped using it.


Simplify the data intake considering perhaps barcode for existing processed food or that food come fresh. Think one touch.

Better interface with Sensor Guardian app to avoid duplicated efforts.

Focus recommendations on non-trivial value added solutions that patients can act on, e.g., blood sugar tends to increase 2 hrs after salt intake, noticed consumption of chips, recommend reducing it, and check again in 2 weeks.

Also recommend adding a follow up feature, eg, noticed blood sugar rises after cream cheese intake, confirm in 2 weeks.

Also, I would really like a feature to analyze the raw data and see the results of the analysis better.
