Diabetes, Insulin, Application, Android operating System


More and more services are becoming available on mobile applications under people’s finger tips making their lives easier and go smoother in this busy world. How about if that service could help to save someone’s life. The proposed application for diabetes patient type 1 to follow up the blood glucose. The application works on android operating systems. it is used to make easier monitoring and controlling the blood sugar through recording the blood sugar reading daily for four times, list the reading into a table as well as there is a graph to show the rate of blood sugar comparing with normal level. This idea was chosen because the diabetes is one of the most common diseases in the world and it is difficult to control it only in follow up the sugar level in the blood, then using specific food system. The application uses some medical functions and protocols to provide the user with a simple design and several other features. The important feature is using specific   function   to give the patient the insulin dose that he should take it.
