My Diabetes My Way: February 2022 Update

Welcome to the My Diabetes My Way Newsletter for February 2022.


Updates to My Diabetes My Way

Earlier in February, we completed a significant upgrade to the My Diabetes My Way technical infrastructure. Apart from a short period downtime, you may not have noticed any changes to the service, but these changes are helping us to improve the security and speed of the website. It will also improve our capacity for new developments over the coming months. We are meeting with our Scottish Government funders at the end of March to prioritise what’s coming next. In the meantime, if you have any feedback the next time you use My Diabetes My Way, please email us at


Free Online Course for Ramadan

MyWay Digital Health are hosting a Massive Open Online Course on 'Managing Diabetes During Ramadan' on 17th March. The eLearning course is available to anyone and offers a supportive shared learning experience for anyone living with diabetes, carers and healthcare professionals. To book your place, please visit


Research Study Questionnaire

My Diabetes My Way supports diabetes research in Scotland. The University of Glasgow is currently running a study to assess the “Longer term impact of COVID 19 infection in people with diabetes”.

We know that many people with diabetes experienced serious illness when they have had COVID-19. This study will ask people in Scotland with type 1 and type 2 diabetes what issues they have experienced over the past year with both COVID and their diabetes control. We’d like as many people with diabetes as possible to join in, whether or not you’ve had (or think you might have had) COVID-19.

If you are interested in taking part, please click on the link below. More information is provided on the website page:

The questionnaire survey will take approximately 30-45 minutes to complete.


Join Up Your Fitbit Data

My Diabetes My Way contains a link to Fitbit ( that allows you to add your activity tracker data to My Diabetes My Way. If you have a Fitbit device, log in to My Diabetes My Way and select “My Services”. You can then link your Fitbit account and connect your Fitbit records. When you do this, you will see a new section named “My Activity” where you can monitor your steps, heart rate and many other Fitbit measurements.

Even if you don't own a Fitbit device, you can still track your activity for free by downloading the Fitbit app on your smartphone and using Fitbit’s MobileTrack function. MobileTrack lets you use the Fitbit app without a Fitbit device by using your phone's sensors to track basic activity data including steps, distance, and calories burned. More information on MobileTrack can be found here:


My Diabetes My Way Admin

Due to the current situation with Coronavirus, it is taking us longer to collect mail, create new enrolment packs and send out registration paperwork for you to access your diabetes records. We are currently processing enrolment packs in batches every two weeks, but we are now happy for you to email us back a photo or scanned copy of your signed form to avoid any further delays.

If you have not yet managed to gain access to your diabetes records on My Diabetes My Way, or would like an update on the status of your registration, please let us know. You can contact us regarding any problems or request further help and support by emailing:
