English / German / Northern Sami / Spanish

Cost: Free

Allows a user to record diabetes-related personal information, including blood glucose levels, carbohydrate consumption, and medication.

"Consider Blue Loop a hub for caregivers of children with diabetes. Parents, doctors, and other caregivers can update a child’s information—with, say, the most recent blood glucose reading or lunch time carb grams—which the other caregivers can view in real time. Customizable text messages remind kids of diabetes-care activities and alert parents when a child has taken action."

BlueStar Diabetes

BlueStar Diabetes
developed by WellDoc Inc


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.”

Dbees.com
developed by Freshware, Poland


Allows networking with other people like me / Family / FriendsRemindersSupport to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackers

Dutch / English / French / Polish / Portuguese / Russian / Spanish

Cost: Free

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

Diabetes App - blood sugar control, glucose tracker and carb counter

Diabetes App - blood sugar control, glucose tracker and carb counter
developed by BHI Technologies Inc, USA


Allows networking with other people like me / Family / FriendsSupport to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackers

English

Cost: £4.44 [approximately €6.26, $6.99]

Diabetes data-management app that allows the user to log and track factors which influence blood-sugar level.

“With most of the apps out there for diabetics, blood-sugar control and tracking are the most important features. Well, ‘Diabetes Buddy’ goes at it using a different approach—trying to help users manage their diabetes by tracking the factors that influence our blood-sugar levels. This app really comes across to me as a proactive type of app, and not just another logbook. Great app, overall.” Free Diabetes Resources | Source no longer available

Diabetes Diary

Diabetes Diary
developed by Chris Bowley, fridayforward, UK


Support to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackersInformation

English

Cost: £2.99 [approximately €4.28, $4.65]

Diabetes diary for recording and tracking blood-glucose readings, carbohydrate intake, and insulin dosing.

“I use ‘Diabetes Diary’, look at my trends, and work out the dose myself. I must admit it came in useful at the clinic, when the dietician was trying to persuade me the benefits of eating lots of carbohydrates. I could scroll through, and show her what happens when I overdose on the carbs.” “The other one I use is ‘Diabetes Diary’, which allows me to log all my data during the day. The carbohydrates are in grams. Plus, you can enter all the foods at each meal. It gives all the usual graphs and charts for analysing the data, and will also allow you to back up the data to your PC. I find it good for looking at trends. Some of the others I have looked at seem to geared solely to the USA.” Two bloggers on Diabetes Support Forum (DSF), UK | http://bit.ly/RJMI6Q

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

Diabetes UK Tracker

Diabetes UK Tracker
developed by Public Zone, Zone Ltd, UK


Support to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackers

English / German

Cost: Free

Logs blood glucose, blood-fat and blood-pressure levels, calories, carbohydrates, HbA1c, insulin, ketones, and weight.

“The app is aimed at helping people with type-1 and type-2 diabetes better manage their condition, and is an example of how technology can help people with diabetes minimise the risk of complications. It is designed to be quick and simple to use, taking the daily chore out of logging levels such as blood glucose, carbohydrates and calories. The app was designed by a team that included user experience professionals, clinical specialists and people with diabetes, to help you manage your condition. Although there are a number of diabetes tracker apps available, the Diabetes UK app has some unique features to give it the edge. It is the first diabetes app that allows you to track how you are feeling, and see whether this affects your levels. Save specific records as ‘talking points’, to help you recognise patterns, and use them as reminders in healthcare appointments. This unique feature will help you get the most out of appointments by setting an agenda of your concerns.” Diabetes UK | http://bit.ly/pmjMZB

Diamedic

Diamedic
developed by Nicholas Martin, USA


Support to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackersInformation

English / German / Spanish

Cost: £3.85 [approximately €5.52, $5.99]

Diabetes logbook that allows a user to record and monitor blood pressure, carbohydrate intake, exercise regimes, glucose readings, insulin injections, lab results, medication, pulse, temperature, weight, and other vital statistics.

“With this app, you can easily monitor your blood-glucose measurements. In addition, you can also specify the amount of insulin, and write notes (I’ve set the following notes: Before breakfast; After breakfast; Before lunch; After lunch; Before dinner; After dinner; Bedtime; Night). The app is also suitable for bolusing. The screen is divided into five sections, which can be defined by you. My five are: blood-sugar levels; insulin dosage; statistics; setup; and ‘More’. Glucose values and insulin input are two main menus, with the following input options available: blood-glucose levels; feature quantities; medications; laboratory results; sporting activities; weight; and pump data. You can view all the values in clear statistics in ‘Graphs’. Very nice, too, is that graphs are displayed in the transverse view when the phone is rotated. Values entered can be sent via email, or uploaded to a server. Conclusion: for me, the €5 is absolutely worth the money. This app is very clear, and easy to operate. It is available in German. Nine out of ten points.” Blogger on Diabetes-Blog.at, Austria | http://bit.ly/Pi1bIK

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

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

developed by AgaMatrix Inc, USA


Self-monitoringTrackersInformation

Dutch / English / French / German / Italian / Spanish

Cost: Free

Helps people with diabetes to track and manage blood-sugar levels.

“It’s easy to tag your meter readings with relevant notes. The built-in database includes an impressive list of items like ‘air bubble’, ‘fatty meal’, and ‘light exercise’. You can set your typical meal times, and it will automatically tag your readings. If you change your schedule, it’s straightforward to correct the tag. The ability to easily capture more data about your diabetes life is important. It will allow healthcare providers to better understand why a patient’s readings are what they are, and make better treatment decisions. Who can look back seven weeks and remember that there was an air bubble in their insulin-pump tubing? Very few. Having this knowledge is an important step towards improving outcomes.” Diabetes Daily, USA | http://bit.ly/JS5BiK

Diabetes management app for recording and tracking A1c levels, blood-glucose levels, blood pressure, carbohydrate intake, doctor visits, exercise activities, insulin or oral medication, weight, and other medical records.

“ ‘LogFrog DB’ is one of the newer diabetes-management apps. For three bucks (less than a co-pay), you get a new spin on the diabetes app. They did away with the clinical feel of filling out charts and entering data, and designed a really visual, snappy, and enjoyable logging experience. ‘LogFrog’ also has great graphs, and export tools to help people analyse and share their data.” Blogger responding to a Diabetes Forecast article in Healthy Living Magazine of the American Diabetes Association (ADA), USA | Source is no longer available

Cost: Free
App used within parts of the UK National Health Service, enabling patients to track, monitor and manage their health, and choose to share data to share with healthcare professionals.
“Self-testing has allowed me to understand how warfarin works and helps me to stay in the ideal therapeutic range to keep myself as fit and healthy as possible. My readings are more consistent. It also helps me to follow a good diet and reminds me to avoid food and drink cause reactions like broccoli and cranberries. Previously it was a fortnight or a month between clinics and a fair bit can happen in that period. Now I can just test myself and ring the nurse for any advice.”

“This new app is really positive for anyone that is still working. It’s extended my working life really because…previously I was having to work around diary dates to get me to the clinic. Now I can test in the morning at home…I can test myself on the train going up and down from London….It’s given me quite a lot of freedom.”

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

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
