Tracking Steps, Blood Sugar and More with MyFitnessPal

In addition to helping you track your nutrition and exercise, MyFitnessPal can also be customized to help you track additional measurements you’re interested in following. You can keep tabs on body fat percentage, pedometer steps, blood sugar, blood pressure, hip, waist and thigh circumference–pretty much whatever you want!

To add or remove measurements you’re tracking, just log into your MyFitnessPal account on the web.

Once you’ve logged in, click on “My Home“, then “Check in“, then “Track Additional Measurements“. You’ll be taken to a page where you can add or remove measurements in your account.

It’s important to note that each measurement can contain only one value per day. For instance, if you wish to track your blood sugar twice per day, once in the morning and once in the evening, you would need to add two measurements. As an example, you could create an “AM Blood Sugar” and a “PM Blood Sugar” measurement. Similarly, if you wish to track your blood pressure, you would need to add two measurements, one for systolic and one for diastolic.

Any changes you make here will be synced to the app the next time the app is connected to the internet. Your tracked measurements will be viewable in the “Check-In” area on the website and on the “Progress” page within the app.
