I think this is a great suggestion.

You can "track additional measurements" under "my home" then "weigh in."

Hardly a perfect solution, but it just puts a numer on a graph (as long as it's a single number). So glucose will be easy, but blood pressure won't be as neat. You can, for example, do 180.45 or whatever, but the graph will be all over the place.

my home > check in > track additional measurements will let you add "anything" specifically measurable.

Glucose you'll have to add a line for EACH time of day that you check it, having blood glucose alone and trying to track breakfast lunch and dinner readings when you go back to look you'll find it only kept the final value recorded. This is avoided by entering a line for each time of day you check such as pre breakfast BS, post breakfast BS etc until you get enough to match your needs.
Blood pressure is also easiest done with multiple lines.
One for the systolic pressure
one for diastolic
another for BPM (heart rate)

Currently the ability to do reports IS kind of lacking on these things where you have to break them up over multiple lines as you can only do a graph output for one measurement type at a time but hopefully the upgrade that is "coming" for reports will address this.

thanks, folks. Those seem like reasonable work arounds. Right now I am emailing a spreadsheet anyways to my doctor so its no big deal to track seperately.

Another feature that I would like (since I am asking) is to give read only access to a doctor or nurse. It would be so convenient to have my info stored on MFP and then the appropriate medical pros can look at them.

my home > settings >diary settings

you can choose to have them join MFP and friend them, making your diary visible to friends only or you can make the diary public so anyone can see it even non-mfp members... or you can lock it with a key, only those with the key can view the diary, you could give that "key" to the health-care provider.

It won't give them access to your my home > check in measurements though, just the food diary, food notes, exercise diary and exercise notes.
