BlueStar Diabetes

BlueStar Diabetes

Support to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackersInformation

English

Cost: A physician must write a prescription for the app
Provides immediate guidance and coaching to adults with type 2 diabetes after entering blood glucose or medication data. Helps track and calculate carbs and calculate medications. Helps track medications.
“The first MPT product on the market is BlueStar by WellDoc. You cannot get it in all states. BlueStar is designed for adults 21 or older with type 2 diabetes who are not on an insulin pump and are not pregnant. Your doctor writes a prescription for the service. A pharmacy fills the prescription. Your doctor may prescribe BlueStar directly or may ask your doctor about getting started. Once prescribed, you will download the BlueStar application from your app store. After you download, you will use an access code to register and get started with quick in-product training.
To use the system, you enter information about your treatment plan. The automated system then tells you what to do. For example, if you enter a fasting BG value that is within target range, you will get a positive message that reinforces your treatment plan. BlueStar allows you to send your doctor a summary of your progress before your next visit. Your healthcare team uses the report to learn more about your diabetes and determine any changes to your treatment plan. BlueStar does not provide emergency help.”

Carb Counting with Lenny

Carb Counting with Lenny
developed by Medtronic Inc, USA


TrackersInformation

English

Cost: Free

Carbohydrate-counting app intended to help children with diabetes gain the skills required to count carbohydrates.

“I downloaded the app, and I have to tell you—I really like it a lot. The app has a ‘Food guide’ divided by food groups that list the carbohydrate count and serving size when you touch the image on the screen. It doesn’t matter what brand of pump you use, or if you use multiple daily injections—the app is all about carb counting, and one of the things I really like about it is that it helps everyone. Not only is the app great for kids and adults with diabetes, but I think it’s a wonderful teaching tool for siblings and friends of children with diabetes, or children who have a parent with diabetes. Carb counting is a family affair. I spent an inordinate amount of time playing the game, and I surprised myself with what I did (and didn’t) know about carb counting. I also like the fact that you can add pictures of your favourite foods. All of us like different foods, and if you can add your kids’ (or your) food favourites, it makes life easier for everyone. The app includes four carb-counting games, and the last three require the player to unlock the previous level in order to play. I don’t know that when I first downloaded the app (and from what I've read, neither did some others).” Diabetesaliciousness blog, USA | http://bit.ly/T9XIYc

Cook & Count

Cook & Count
developed by iQo Solutions Inc, USA and UK; designer: Daniel Pidcock, UK


Support to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringInformation

English

Cost: £3.99 [approximately €5.68, $6.23]
Contains nutritional information on calories, fat, protein, fibre and sugars, as well as carbohydrate.
“ ‘Cook & Count Carbs’ is a new mobile app for anyone who wants to keep a close eye on the amount of carbohydrate they are eating. … It’s aimed primarily at people with type-1 diabetes, who need to match their insulin doses carefully with the amount of carbohydrate they eat. But the developers say it’s also suitable for people following a low-carb diet, or athletes who want to monitor their carbohydrate intake. Cook & Count Carbs is a very neat and clever app, which is super-easy and enjoyable to use. All you do is find your ingredients from the searchable database of 2,000 generic (non-branded) foods, key in the weight you’re using (in grams or ounces), and build them into recipes. You can also increase the database yourself by adding in your own ingredients as you go. Once you’ve finished inputting your recipe or meal, the app totals the amount of carbs per recipe and per serving. … The strength of Cook & Count Carbs is that it homes in on carb-counting, which is a crucial part of managing daily life for people with type-1 diabetes, and those with type-2 diabetes, or gestational diabetes, who need insulin. The app’s strength, though, is also its weakness, because it only supplies carbohydrate values—no information on calories, fat, protein, fibre or salt is provided at the moment (although this may be built into future versions, in which case the app would be a really formidable resource). Because of its narrow focus, Cook & Count Carbs is probably not the best choice if you are aiming to lose weight to manage your type-2 diabetes, where other factors such as fat, fibre, salt, and above all, calories, are important.” Diabetes Diet Choices, UK | http://bit.ly/1gc3ud0

Support to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackers

Chinese / Dutch / English / French / German / Russian / Spanish / Swedish

Cost: Free
Diabetes management tracker for recording food intake, glucose readings, and medicine records.
“I have diabetes, and I am a geek. So, of course, I find a few diabetic apps. One of these is ‘Diabetes Log’, written by Chris Ross. He has type-1 diabetes, and wanted an app to record his carbohydrates, glucose reading, and insulin dosages. And that’s as much as this app does. Chris is offering the app for free, while he work out the bugs (I didn’t find any), and plans to charge a small amount when he feels that the app is ready.” Blogger on TuDiabetes, a social network of the Diabetes Hands Foundation (DHF) | http://bit.ly/ULWMdX

Diabetes Pal

Diabetes Pal
developed by Telcare Inc, USA


Support to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackers

English

Cost: Free

Allows a user with diabetes to track A1c, blood-glucose levels, blood pressure, food intake, medication, weight, etc.

"Even if you don’t have a Telcare blood glucose meter that wirelessly sends test results to this app, you can take advantage of Diabetes Pal by manually entering your blood glucose readings. The app also logs your medicine and food, allows for note-taking, and—with what is probably the greatest draw for users without a Telcare meter—plots data on a line graph, pie chart, and bar graph. The downside: text in the logs can be a bit small." Diabetes Forecast Magazine, American Diabetes Association (ADA), USA | http://bit.ly/Yq4g8d

Diapp

Diapp
developed by Unit040 Design B.V./Unit040 Ontwerp B.V., Netherlands


Support to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesInformation

Dutch / English

Cost: £2.09 [approximately €2.99, $3.25]

Carbohydrate-/meal-logging app and medication calculator.

“Counting the number of carbohydrates you have in a meal may take many ‘years’ with the aid of only a log-book and tables. Fortunately, there is now an app that can assist: ‘Diapp’. You simply select the products that you eat. The app then calculates the total carbohydrates, and the number of units you need to inject. You can also add products. Expansion to other platforms [beyond Apple] is at the planning stage. Meanwhile, this app is not available for Android devices. One of our readers pointed us to a similar app on Android: ‘HelpDiabetes’.” Diabetesvereniging Nederland (DVN) [Netherlands Diabetes Association], Netherlands | http://bit.ly/UyMNyc

English

Cost: Free

Provides nutritional information on foods, with the aim of helping a user with diabetes to lose weight, and to manage diet.

By selecting a food, you’ll get a list of health pros (for instance, 100% whole grain), and cons (for instance, loaded with high-fructose corn syrup), and can compare it to similar products. Keep track of products you eat regularly by ‘liking’ a food. Then, next time you hit the store, you can pull up a ‘My likes’ list of foods you might want to buy again.” American Diabetes Association (ADA) | Source no longer available

Chinese / English / French / German / Japanese / Korean / Spanish

Cost: Free
Tracks glucose, meal types, medication, and weight.
“Using Healthsome G provides daily results that help me stick to the plan I have worked out for me. No real National Health Service (NHS) support for what I am doing. When I suggested to my GP, I was told most people would not want to record like this, so it is not worth them offering anything. My type-2 diabetes, my blood pressure, my cholesterol are all controlled. I did not take medications. I researched, and, using apps, have won.” Person living with post-polio syndrome and type-2 diabetes, UK | PatientView survey, August 2014

Dutch / English / French / Italian / Romanian / Spanish

Cost: Free

Carbohydrate counter with a food database.

“The US food database is a bit too huge for my app. For this English-language app, I used an English version of the Norwegian food database. This fits on most devices. It would also be nice to have a database with foods in different proportions (for instance, an apple ‘per 100 gram’, or ‘per piece’). I know all that information is available in the US database, and I used that to make a more elaborated Dutch version.” The app developer, blogging on TuDiabetes, a social network of the Diabetes Hands Foundation (DHF) | http://bit.ly/MH6xw6

OnTrack Diabetes

OnTrack Diabetes
developed by GExperts Inc, Canada


RemindersSelf-monitoringTrackersInformation

English

Cost: Free

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’. I highly reccommend this app.” Blogger on Diabetes.co.uk | http://bit.ly/LNShjA

Support to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackers

Catalan / Chinese / Croatian / Czech / Danish / Dutch / English / Finnish / French / German / Greek / Italian / Polish / Portuguese / Russian / Slovak / Slovenian / Spanish / Swedish / Thai / Turkish

Cost: Andorid: Free, Apple: £4.25 [approximately €5.99, $6.64]

Diabetes logbook for recording and tracking blood-glucose levels, blood pressure, carbohydrate intake, and medication.

“The app is well made, and attractive. For users of the app, a PC is a must, so that you can go read the data or statistics. But even for people who do not use the PC version, the app is a fully mature and good diary, though you must not forget those that the app does not export. For this, one would need the ‘SiDiary’ online data-print function, (not PDF, text only), and, therefore, it is only natural to synchronise the data to the Internet version.” Diabetes-Index of Diabetes Zentrale e.V. | http://bit.ly/rnOBK6
