Hello,

Thanks for asking dLife.

More and more people with diabetes are using technology to control their blood glucose levels. Some mobile apps enable you to set your carbohydrate budget and track your daily nutrition intake of the food, carbs, fiber, fat etc, and also track quantity of water intake, readings of your glucose, A1C, blood pressure, heart rate, weight, exercise, medications and insulin. Some even allow you to share readings with your doctors in form of CSV, HTML or PDF by email.

Calorie and carbohydrate trackers are usually free. Unfortunately, there is a charge for apps that include a more comprehensive range of features. Depending on how often it is utilized, the one-time charge may be a reasonable investment in your health.

New apps are constantly emerging. Perhaps we can all keep a look-out for apps that meet your criteria and share our resources with dLife readers.

Check out dLife Mobile App – Diabetes Companion.

Take care.
