What is Nightscout

The Nightscout Foundation exists to encourage and support the creation of open source technology projects that enhance the lives of people with Type 1 Diabetes and those who love them. This includes fundraising, advocacy, and direct software and hardware development.

The project that started it all. The Nightscout Project is a DIY system for remote monitoring of a Continuous Glucose Monitor. CGMs are used by diabetics around the world to keep persons with diabetes and their caregivers up to date with what’s going on in their bodies. Most of the pictures you see on this site are of people using the Nightscout Project. Ready to set up yours? Ready to add to the system?
