Josh Juster, the founder of Sugarmate, has been living with type 1 diabetes for more than 25 years. He created the Sugarmate app as a way to help others in the diabetes community by combining his passion for diabetes technology and consumer software development.
The Sugarmate™ app is designed for smartphones and smart devices and provides people living with type 1 diabetes, or caregivers, alerts and intuitive data visualization based on continuous glucose monitoring (CGM).
