KidneyDiet

KidneyDiet
developed by Pivot Communication LLC, USA


Self-monitoringTrackersInformation

English

Cost: Free

Helps people with chronic kidney disease (CKD) or end-stage renal disease (ESRD) make better decisions about diet. Although available on Android, the developer's website http://www.kidneydiet.com/ states the app is no longer available or supported.

“3.5 stars. A food-analysis tool for people with kidney disease. It tracks potassium, phosphorus, protein, sodium and fluid levels in various foods. Listed as one of the 10 best health apps by Yahoo. With kidney disease as its primary focus, this app could be very useful for people in early-stage kidney failure. It can help educate on the good food, the bad food, and the ugly food that tempts us all day, every day. Though it is unlikely to be used every day, setting up a typical meal week will provide an excellent guide for healthy eating. Then again, others may well use it every day.” Big D and Me dialysis blog, Australia | http://bit.ly/NizRsR

Patientmpower

Patientmpower
developed by Patientmpower


RemindersSupport to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackersInformation

English / German / Spanish

Cost: Free
App to help patients manage their health with conditions including Kidney Transplant, Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), Vasculitis
Article on patients involved from the Irish Lung Fibrosis Association in developing the app

“With your help we at patientMpower have developed an electronic health diary (an “app”) which can be used by people with lung fibrosis to help them keep track of their symptoms and lung health.

The patientMpower app works on any smartphone or tablet device (like an iPad). The idea is that you use your mobile phone to keep a diary of various symptoms and other factors related to your lung health. For example, you can keep track of the number of steps walked each day or your level of breathlessness. If you have a connected spirometer, the breathing test information will also be recorded and the app can be used as a reminder to take your medicines each day. When attending clinic appointments, it may be useful to have this type of information to hand so you can tell the doctor or nurse about issues that may have been troubling you.

“A group of ILFA volunteers have tested the app with home spirometry in a user experience survey and given us useful feedback on their experience of the app. patientMpower want to thank these volunteers for their help in guiding us on how we can improve the app and its use with measurement devices (like home spirometers).”

Cost: Free

App to help patients manage their electronic health records, including for kidney disease, diabetes and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).

“PatientView allows you to view, monitor and plot trends of your blood results as well as allowing you to view your clinic letters and upload your own readings such as weight and blood pressure. 

This will help you understand more about your condition and how your lifestyle is affecting your condition, for example, you can monitor how well you’re adhering to your dietary restrictions such as salt, potassium and phosphates.

…Please, note that note all renal centres use PatientView and those that do not may not use all of its facilities.”

RENAL TRKRR

RENAL TRKRR
developed by (R)Health LLC, USA


RemindersSupport to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackers

English

Cost: Android: £5.06 [approximately €7.27, $7.89]

Helps people with chronic kidney disease (CKD) or end-stage renal disease (ESRD) to record, track, and share their vital renal-health information.

“4 stars. This is a comprehensive app that covers the spectrum of information which a patient with kidney disease needs to manage their condition. As a complex app, it has learning curve. But it is easy to start with small entries of things you know (such as food preferences and medications), and to expand as other information arrives (such as lab results). The app is for kidney disease only—no specific dialysis data is collected. Naturally, as a logging tool, it is most appreciated by the anal among us, though it is likely that the charts and trend information may justify maintaining your data. Time will tell whether it is worth the money.” Big D and Me dialysis blog, Australia | http://bit.ly/NizRsR
