After checking their blood sugar, this message will appear. The message could be informational if the user is high or low (ranges would be personalized, since ranges differ for each person), suggesting the step the user should take to regulate their blood sugar. Users will be praised for checking multiple days in a row and encouraged to continue the pattern. Both messages will boost the user's confidence by making their goal seems attainable.
The app should display the last reading it received as well as a progress wheel. The user can receive points for checking their blood sugar every day and win prizes (such as a coupon for test stripes) after a certain amount of points. This will extrinsically motivate the user to take their blood sugar more than every 4 days.
