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.”

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

Glucagon

Glucagon
developed by Eli Lilly and Company, USA


RemindersSupport to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesTrackersInformation

English

Cost: Free

Guide for people with diabetes (and their carers) in the emergency administration of the Eli Lilly product, Glucagon.

“I think this app is a really good idea. The first screen shot shows the intro screen, detailing some of the features mentioned in the manufacturer’s press release. The second shows the ‘Home’ screen, and the third is a shot of the emergency instructions. I particularly think that the ‘Manage My kits’ log is a fantastic idea—since we’ve never used our Glucagon, I sometimes forget where we stashed it, and, honestly, I’m pretty sure it has expired. This app will allow me to set one or more reminders of the expiration date—one month before, two weeks before, and every day for the last week before the kit expires.” Bitter-Sweet blog, USA | http://bit.ly/RQb9vQ

iBGStar mmol/L Diabetes Manager App

iBGStar mmol/L Diabetes Manager App
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

developed by Langerhans, Netherlands


Support to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesInformation

English

Cost: Free

Bi-directional conversion calculator for people with diabetes.

“Some people find the conversion from the old to the new HbA1c still difficult. Langerhans has therefore developed an app. Langerhans is a collective term for the educational activities of four diabetes doctors. Although Langerhans focuses on people working in the subject area of diabetes, this app also for people with diabetes.

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

Pocket A1c

Pocket A1c
developed by John Carlin of Funny Garbage, USA


Support to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesInformation

English

Cost: Free

Simple, one-page, slide-bar app that allows a user to convert A1c level to estimated average blood-glucose level, and vice-versa.

“It doesn’t give you the capability to log anything in the system. It does give you the opportunity to get an average of what your A1c is going to be. That is pretty cool, because, sometimes, you don’t want to go to the doctor’s, and be blind-sided. What you do is, you take your average blood-sugar levels, enter it into the app, and it gives you the average of what your A1c may look like. It also gives it to you in mg/dL and mmol/L, so it’s not just American—you can convert it. Another good thing I like about this app is that it is free. One of my two favourite apps that I use to manage my diabetes.” Video blog by a person with diabetes on the WellThen.org blog, USA | [source no longer available]
