Now you can track all your diabetes data via voice command! The One Drop skill for Amazon Alexa uses Amazon voice technology along with the One Drop app to create a quick and seamless experience for both people with diabetes and their caregivers.
Want to log a blood glucose reading, meal, or workout? Curious about your daily stats? Need to know your spouse's last blood sugar reading? Just ask Alexa.
To get started... Link your One Drop account and ask Alexa:
"Alexa, ask One Drop what's my average blood glucose?" "Alexa, ask One Drop how many carbs have I eaten?" "Alexa, ask One Drop how much have I exercised?" "Alexa, ask One Drop what's my med schedule today?" "Alexa, ask One Drop what's my daily summary?"
You can also record data with Alexa using the following commands:
"Alexa, tell One Drop my blood glucose is 123." "Alexa, tell One Drop I ate 40 carbs." "Alexa, tell One Drop I ran for 30 minutes."

Works moderately well. My DH is actually using the skill being that he is the diabetic. I think telling Alexa to "Open One Drop" has worked the best - then telling her the actual blood glucose number. But we, too, would like to second the request for being able to also have Alexa record the number of units of medication - he uses two (Novolog for the first three readings of the day and Tresiba for the last and 4th reading) and doesn't use a pump.
Frequently told by Alexa that she’s having trouble accessing my one drop skill to record glucose, yet I am in the one drop app. Also,suppose to record readings by just saying “my glucose is xxx” but again I frequently get cannot access or “hmmmmm, I don’t know that or I can’t help with that”
I've been using One Drop since April 2015 and it's done nothing but change my life for the better. As a type 1 diabetic of 23 years, I'm extremely appreciative of the care put into the design and experience of using One Drop.
Thank you to the developers for continuing to innovate! I love this new Alexa Skill! I am able to log a meal with just my voice while my hands are busy cooking/eating. It's awesome!
This app is a very good idea, but a poor implementation.
I suspect it doesn't work until it is warmed up.. If I tell it, Alexa tell One drop my Blood glucose is 98, about 2/3rds of the time it says "I am having trouble accessing your skill right now" If I say "open one drop" then tell it my blood glucose, it works most of the time. Seems to work better on weekdays than weekends..
I also don't think it handles time zones at all when it reads you your stats for the day.. (thats tough on alexa, I understand)
