Gluroo is inspired by the simplicity of group messaging, where all the members of a GluCrew communicate in a shared messaging application just like texting. Layered on top of that are integrations to support diabetes care more directly, including reading Dexcom or Libre CGM sensors, automatically synchronizing with DIY Loop and Omnipod Dash and the OP5, writing data to Nightscout, scanning QR codes from packaging to facilitate reporting bad sensors, and more.
Gluroo also adds a patent-pending smart alerting system and an AI-driven Natural Language Processing engine to make logging crazy fast and easy. Gluroo has grown to be a comprehensive diabetes management platform. This talk will focus on the integrations with looping solutions that provide valuable second-screen capabilities when your GluCrew’s Person with Diabetes isn’t at your side.
Greg Badros, who developed Gluroo, is a T1Dad since February 2020 when his 10-year-old was diagnosed. Right away, Greg realized that diabetes is best handled as a team sport and looked for apps to help manage the continuous care and logging that would benefit his son. While there were lots of choices, none supported his family’s needs well. Greg knew he could build something better and in August 2020, Gluroo was born.
Greg earned B.Sc. degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science from Duke University, and a Ph.D. and M.Sc. from the University of Washington in Computer Science and Engineering. He had a successful career in high-tech having worked on Excel at Microsoft and led the GMail and Ads teams at Google and the Ads, Search, and other product teams at Facebook. He now is CEO for Gluroo, working with a small team and dogfooding (“dogfooding” is the practice of using one’s own products or services) Gluroo every day with his family.
This looks very interesting. But I want more simplicity in my life. I just will not make time to learn new apps that are not intuitive and do not work with my pump. Surely we can figure out ways to try some of these cool apps and let them interact with my pump without a steep learning curve or fear that i will invest time only to find it is non pump oriented or works best with pump a but not pump b.
Rick, I totally understand. I think some of these apps really help parents of T1D kids, trying to manage their D while at school and out in the world.
