MILWAUKEE, August 27, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- healthio inc, a start-up that provides an artificial intelligence(AI)-based preventive health platform, announced an important expansion of their product – the ability to measure and track blood sugar.

With this addition, healthio enables tracking of all the major vitals. According to healthio's Chief Product Officer, Sigvard Bore, "We can now support people who want to manage their pre-diabetic and diabetic conditions… while also enabling non-diabetic customers to gain insights into this critical health vital."

As with other vitals, healthio enables direct transmission of blood sugar readings into its app using the widely available True Metrix Air glucometer. But healthio is providing the flexibility for other users who want to continue using their own glucometer device – they can enter readings manually.

Type 1 & type 2 diabetes are on the rise among youths, and type 2 diabetes is rising for adults across the age spectrum. Being able to measure and track blood sugar is a critical part of any diabetes care plan, and becomes even more powerful when it can be combined with tracking of other issues that are typically seen with diabetes – such as high blood pressure. With healthio you can also measure blood pressure and can track both the vitals in the same app – a key differentiator for healthio compared other devices and apps most of which only allow measuring one or the other.
