A quantified diabetic

A talk from Stefan Hoevenaar at Quantified Self Europe 2014

At Quantified Self Europe 2014, ILUMY’s own Stefan Hoevenaar told a story about his father and how he measured his diabetic life.

Trained as a chemist, Stefan’s father kept daily logs for 30 years with his blood sugar levels and personal notes explaining any discrepancies. This makes him a Quantified Selfer avant la lettre, with paper logbooks and hand-drawn annual graphs to understand himself and his disease, rather than today’s handy online services and mobile apps.

Preparing and presenting this story helped Stefan better understand his father, and made all of us at ILUMY think about better ways for application users to record and make sense of their data.
