Insulin Load tracking

This would be helpful, and it's a simple formula using data that the app already collects:

Insulin Load of a meal plan (in grams) = total carbs - fiber carbs + (0.56 x protein)

And if this could be charted, even better.

    Hi Loonypapa,

    Thanks for the formula for a new metric to track.
    If you would like to start tracking (and charting) this right away, create a custom biometric. You will have to calculate your values for now.

    On the website, select Add Biometric in your diary, then click the green + icon to create a new biometric. Give your metric a name and unit of measurement. This will remain in your list of biometrics so you can add it each day. By tracking it as a biometric you will be able to view your data over time in the trends tab.

    Heads Up Health desktop will import Cronometer and give you your daily insulin load. It's accurate based on your formula and I use it daily.
