In recognition of November’s World Diabetes Day, here are two smartphone diabetes apps designed to help you track, analyze and manage your numbers.
Diabetes: Glucose Buddy by GlucoseBuddy.com
Features: This app helps manage diabetes by tracking glucose readings that are entered four times a day, along with food consumed, exercise and medication. There’s also an alarm that reminds you to take your glucose readings. You can even write notes to explain unusual circumstances, such as high-carbohydrate meals. Data can be uploaded to glucosebuddy.com for a more detailed analysis.
Operating System: iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch
Features: This helpful app tracks your blood sugar, food intake, medication, blood pressure, pulse, activity, and weight. You can customize categories like medicine and exercise type, and export your data in several formats.
