But it takes time to input the data each day.” Person living with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, UK | PatientView survey, August 2014

Diabetes management app for people with type-1, type-2, gestational, latent-autoimmune diabetes of adulthood (LADA), or secondary diabetes.

“Looks interesting—it’s Polish. Tried it out on my new tablet. It doesn’t cater for exenatide or liraglutide medication. But it does seem to cover pump use (I don’t use a pump, so I can’t comment on its ability here). You can input your meal carbohydrate count, and injection times, and other medications. All access is through secure (https) websites, and it generates a mobile activation code which is emailed to you, and you don’t supply your name, or other personal details. You can access your data from your PC, and your mobile device synchronises with their website when you connect, which is good. There is a fledgling forum, as well.” Blogger on DiabetesSupport.co.uk, UK | http://bit.ly/RKXQjW

EndoGoddess

EndoGoddess
developed by eProximiti; Duet Health LLC, both USA


RemindersSupport to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackersInformation

English

Cost: Free

Diabetes-management journal for recording and tracking blood-glucose levels, carbohydrate intake, and insulin dosages - with reminders when to test your blood glucose

“Earning rewards for tracking your blood sugar? That’s the new twist provided by ‘EndoGoddess’, a diabetes app from Dr Jen Dyer, an Ohio-based endocrinologist who is deep into social media. Her app allows patients to earn points for every day they log their blood sugars four times. The points can be cashed in for songs on iTunes. Cool. I found the interface for tracking your blood sugar very simple (almost too simple). There are only four slots to enter your blood sugar: breakfast, lunch, dinner and bedtime. You can enter carbs and insulin as well, but you can only enter your insulin dose in whole numbers. For pumpers, that’s a no-go. As far as we could tell, there was no way to backdate entries. In ‘Reminders’, you can set alarms to remind you to test your blood sugar. But they are pre-programmed at specific times, which you can’t change to your own preference. Unlike other diabetes apps, there are no graphs to review, and the only ‘history’ is the number of points you’ve earned in past weeks. Despite not being visible on the app, there are graphs you can share with your doctor or anyone else (a common feature in glucose-logging apps, these days). The app does also offer an educational component, with basic info on insulin, other diabetes meds, exercise and visiting your endocrinologist, plus recipes (although the recipes don’t come with carbohydrate counts). This app seems quite useful for newly-diagnosed people with diabetes, type-2 diabetics, or people who tend to test their blood sugar at the same, very specific, times of day (it’s not dynamic enough to handle the variety of life with type-1 diabetes). The app itself is nicely designed and easy to read and use. It misses the opportunity to customise, and provide enough information for the patient to see problem areas at a single glance. (Note that this app just came out two weeks ago, so we’re hoping for those additions soon.) The prospect of earning points for iTunes songs is a pretty tempting deal, though. Nice to see an endocrinologist getting into the apps game.” Diabetes Mine, USA | http://bit.ly/pteHMx

The app will help you keep track of your diabetes, and is a robust diabetes management app with a lot of great features. It will help you to gain better control of your diabetes by tracking and storing key data and numbers that you can monitor in a journal, or on graphs. Another great thing about this app is that it will allow you to send the data stored in the app to your doctor. The app will also compute statistics, and much more. The app has a very basic and sleek layout, with a ‘dashboard’-style opening screen that lets you easily select a feature.” Free Diabetes Resources, USA | http://bit.ly/Q4xvLr

Lose It!

Lose It!
developed by FitNow Inc, USA


Support to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringInformation

English

Cost: Free

Allows a user to set weight-loss goals, establish a daily calorie budget to meet them, and to record food consumption and exercise levels.

“I started using this food app called ‘Lose It!’ to measure food. The interface is really handy, and almost makes it fun to track. The little modes of entering data that it uses to track food are very easy to use; it uses the camera to scan bar codes; has little wheels to track serving size, so that if you eat half a doughnut, it’s easy to enter in. The database isn’t totally comprehensive; I’ve found a few things not included. But, perhaps using my experience, I’ve found things that seem close. So far, I’ve found the app very compatible with my lifestyle. When I started using it, just a week or so ago, I noticed that I would eat small snacks more often that I thought, turned my basals down, and ‘presto’, no jelly beans. I still have a few other things, but I’ve been pleased to have a handy way to track food. In some ways, it’s sort of handy to keep it separate from the diabetes gizmos (the pump, CGM, etc). I was sort of spooked this morning to check and find out that, yesterday, I had 137g of carbs on both ‘Lose It!’ and my pump.” TuDiabetes, a social network of the Diabetes Hands Foundation (DHF) | Source is no longer available

Helps people with diabetes manage their condition by tracking blood glucose, blood pressure (BP), exercise, food, medication, pulse, and weight.

“ ‘OnTrack’ is my favorite Android app. I tried several apps, but found them all either limiting, or too comprehensive. This is simple, and equates to keeping a diary. However, the neat feature is that it can record other things as well. I have blood-pressure problems, so I can record readings for blood pressure and pulse. Also, you can set up multiple medications. Before, I used three different apps that all worked differently. Now, I have all my medical stuff in one neat app. You can view the results in various formats, and you can upload the record book and graphs for any period you choose to a simple place like ‘Dropbox’.
