Self-monitoringTrackers

English

Cost: £1.49 [approximately €2.15, $2.32]

Intended to help people with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) track and monitor their daily activity levels.

“The app is a fantastic way for people to feel in control in managing their condition. Having the app on their phone makes their charts and monitoring information more portable and accessible—which, we hope, will encourage more meticulous use of this self-monitoring tool. The information recorded can then be discussed with their clinical teams, and the data used to inform treatment plans. This makes each patient’s treatment highly individualised, and patients can really feel that they are taking charge of their care.” Northern CFS Clinical Network, UK | http://bit.ly/P26kjp

Diabetes Diary

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

iRecordit Diabetes Sugar Glucose and Health Tracker

iRecordit Diabetes Sugar Glucose and Health Tracker
developed by Communiteq Systems Inc, Canada


Support to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackers

English

Cost: £4.00 [approximately €5.73, $6.22]

Diabetes-management and personal-health app that allows a user to record and track personal health-related information.

“Asks the user to input certain data about their blood sugar and general health, and allows the user access to the visual representation of that data on their BlackBerry, or via email to their PC or healthcare provider. This visual representation allows you to have a daily view of your glucose levels. What’s missing from apps such as this is Bluetooth integration with an insulin monitor. I would like to see the developer partner with some large healthcare institutions to bring this sort of functionality, because automating and avoiding data input will make this app even better, and more effective.” Reviewer on the Diabetic Village social network, USA, linking to comments on the BlackberryCool online community for Blackberry users, Canada | [Source no longer available]

Helps the user work out what medical condition they may have.

This app is extensive, and offers an easy way to keep your health information with you wherever you go. It connects with Microsoft Health Vault (not a tool I really like), which is unique to some apps that do not connect to web apps where health information is already stored.” Patient group specialising in helping patients navigate national healthcare policy, USA | PatientView survey, July-August 2012

LogFrog DB Lite

Cost: Free

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
