NAME

Diabetes::Glucose - A simple utility package for storing and manipulating glucose values

VERSION

This document describes version 1.0

SYNOPSIS

    my $glucose = Diabetes::Glucose->new( 
        mgdl        => '103',                   # could also use mmol => 5.9
        stamp       => DateTime->now,
        comment     => 'Used a OneTouch meter',
        source      => 'Manual Entry'
    );

    say $glucose->mgdl;         # 103
    say $glucose->mmol;         # 5.674931129476585...

    say $glucose->source;       # Manual Entry

METHODS

new

Creates a new object. Nothing much to see here.

comment

A commment for this particular reading, if anything of note happened. Some systems may make use of it, for whatever purposes they want.

source

The source of the reading. This is ued by Parse::Dexcom::Tab and Parse::Medtronic::Tab to note the souce of the reading. Diabetes::Graph::Glucose also makes use of this to note the source of data.

stamp

A timestamp. Should be a DateTime object. Will try hard to convert time-like strings into DateTime objects, but no guarantees. Give it what it wants and no one gets hurt. Defaults to <DateTime-now>>.

mgdl, mmol

Display the currently-stored value in the unit system specified. Using the same data from the SYNOPSIS:

    say $glucose->mgdl          # 103
    say $glucose->mmol          # 5.67... etc, etc.

The conversion is done at object construction, don't try to change it later, it won't work like you think.

BUGS

None known, so probably lots.
