It’s as simple as checking your blood sugar, doing 14-20 minutes of physical activity, and checking your blood sugar again. Caregivers and friends of people with diabetes can even do the Big Blue Test (without checking your blood sugar).

Have you done the Big Blue Test?

Download the Big Blue Test app to record your results. You can also find the Android app on their website or enter your results directly.

From The Big Blue Test Website:

“Since 2010, over 40,000 people helped themselves while helping more than 10,000 others. Most participants in the Big Blue Test experience an average blood sugar drop of 20% and by every Big Blue Test result a donation is made by the program sponsor to help others around the world with diabetes in need.

The Big Blue Test is a program of the Diabetes Hands Foundation that encourages people with diabetes to test their blood sugar, exercise for 14-20 minutes, test again and share their experience on For every test, people with diabetes in need receive life-saving supplies through Big Blue Test grants that are awarded to humanitarian diabetes charities in the US and around the world, made possible thanks to the program sponsor.

In 2013, the Big Blue Test grants will benefit two US-based initiatives (each will receive US$2,500) and an additional US$5,000 will support projects in Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

This year, we’re seeking to reach 20,000 Big Blue Test entries, which will translate into a donation that will help save lives.”
