Glooko Mobile Dosing Guides For T2 FDA Approved

Glooko has implemented a dosing regulation feature in their app for T2 diabetics on long acting insulin.

Glooko’s Mobile Insulin Dosing System (MIDS) was cleared Wednesday for the titration of long-acting insulin by the FDA.


@docslotnick, the link wasn’t coming through so I edited it.

This article is quite interesting: the way I read it, the app has an algorithm that proposes an MDI basal level for a given BG meter pattern.

The article specifies T2s as the target. I am not 100% sure if it simply does not apply to T1s, or if it was only tested on T2s.

Thank you @Michel. I must have copy/pasted incorrectly.

From what I can discern is that the FDA approval is only for T2’s. Don’t injure much beyond that.

This article seems to suggest that it is only for T2s on basal insulin only using a long acting.

It claims it will make dosing suggestion based a doctors plan and fasting BG readings. This seems like a tall order to me. Fasting readings only tell part of the story. Color me skeptical until I see more information.


I am intrigued, though. I would like to see what it comes up with.

But I also am skeptical. Yet it might be better than what some uneducated PWDs may come up with on their own?
