Apps help patients with diabetes monitor their disease

Diabetics have a lot of information to keep track of when it comes to their health. Luckily, there are a few apps available to help them manage it all.

Glooko
Patients can connect this app to a special cable in order to download their glucose readings to their phone, allowing them to monitor their levels on-the-go. Though the tool is still awaiting approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use as an over-the-counter solution for diabetes management, patients can still download the app for free and purchase the accompanying cable for $39.95.

GoMeals
Diabetics can make healthier, more informed food choices with the help of the GoMeals app. The free app is preloaded with nutritional information from restaurants and grocery stores and also contains a restaurant locator so users can find healthy options nearby. People can also utilize the app’s glucose tracker to make sure they are doing a good job maintaining their levels.

Carb Counting with Lenny
This kid-friendly app helps diabetic children learn how to count carbs and manage their illness. The free tool is just one of many resources available for kids on Lenny-Diabetes.com.
