Stefan Hoevenaar: My Father, A Quantified Diabetic

Stefan Hoevenaar’s father had Type 1 Diabetes. As a chemist, he was already quite meticulous about using data and those habits informed how he tracked and made sense of his blood sugar and insulin data. In this talk, presented at the 2014 Quantified Self Europe Conference, Stefan describes how his father kept notes and hand-drawn graphs in order to understand himself and his disease.

Jana Beck on Visualizing Her Diabetes Data

As you may know, we get excited when someone in our community uses interesting data visualizations to help tell their self-tracking story. Jana Beck is no exception. As a woman living with Type 1 diabetes she’s constantly learning how to better understand what her Dexcom data is telling her. In this talk, Jana follows up on her previous show&tell presentation with some new visualization techniques she’s using. If you’re interested in Jana’s methods be sure to check out her Github repository and her work with Tidepool.org.

(Editor’s Note: I very interested in Jana’s use of Chernoff faces for multivariate data visualization. If you’re using this type of visualization for your own data I would love to see it. Get in touch.)
