Insulin Calculator 2.0 builds upon our initial product offering to help Type-1 diabetics calculate insulin dosage at meal time.
The Insulin Calculator application was written to provide basic help to type-1 diabetics. The disease requires that you constantly monitor your blood glucose levels, and in most cases, inject insulin, before consuming food. The application provides the ability to get the correct dose quickly, and offers basic logging capabilities to store the data for future analysis.
One of the key benefits of Insulin Calculator has been the fact that it allows you to create and work with multiple configurations throughout the day. For example, specific dosage parameters may be different during the morning hours, than those before bedtime, or before and after exercise. The calculator is flexible enough to allow you to set up multiple named configurations, and use the appropriate one when calculating your dose.
Another key element of the tool is the ability for it to display the mathematical steps taken to calculate the dosage. Many schools require that a student submits or shows the calculation, and Insulin Calculator can save them a number of steps by quickly including the information required by the nurse.
Insulin Calculator was release in late 2013, and quickly became a favorite tool for many diabetics. One of the most requested features has been the ability to export the log. Log data can be analyzed by a physician to help the patient better manage their diabetes. This year, we are proud to announce InsulinCalc.org, a free companion web site to the Insulin Calculator mobile application. Using InsulinCalc.org is as easy as working the Insulin Calculator application, and all of your data is stored in one place. User’s mobile devices can quickly sync to InsulinCalc.org, where reports can be generated based on dates.
InsulinCalc.org also provides all of the basic functionality of Insulin Calculator, allowing users to quickly calculate the correct dosage!
We are committed to working on and supporting this application and web site, and keeping it free for the people who need it. Additional features for the application have been planned, including:
- Ability to use mmol (millimole)
- Apple iOS version of the mobile application
- Basic information and protocols on what to do when your sugar is too low, or too high.
