RapidCalc is proudly supported by GlucoMen in UK and Ireland.RapidCalc is a sophisticated bolus insulin dose calculator for diabetics following a basal-bolus regimen. With intelligent tracking of insulin on board, automatic carbohydrate ratio and blood glucose target selection, RapidCalc dramatically simplifies blood glucose management. Complete with detailed history, charting and statistics features, RapidCalc is designed to be easy to use and easy to live with.INSULIN ON BOARD TRACKINGCan't remember when or how much you last dosed? - Don't worry. RapidCalc avoids dose stacking by keeping track of your bolus doses and factoring in Insulin On Board when calculating a suggested dose. AUTOMATIC TARGET AND RATIO SELECTIONRapidCalc supports up to 6 different target blood glucose levels, correction factors and carbohydrate ratios for different times of day and automatically selects the appropriate values when calculating a suggested dose. QUICK DATA ENTRY AND DOSE SUGGESTIONUnique slide-and-tap controls let you enter your blood glucose and carbohydrate values quickly and easily. Simply drag the slider close to your value and then tap on the slider rail to make fine adjustments. As you adjust your values RapidCalc instantly recalculates suggested meal and correction bolus doses. BASAL DOSE RECORDING WITH REMINDERSRapidCalc also makes it easy to record your background insulin doses and supports up to three preset doses with optional reminders."PUMPING WITHOUT A PUMP"RapidCalc delivers many of the benefits normally associated with an insulin pump and indeed users describe it as being like "pumping without a pump". Using RapidCalc along with correct basal insulin dosing it is possible to achieve control similar to that of a well set up pump.ACTIVITY BASED DOSE ADJUSTMENTIntegrated dose adjustment for exercise based on intensity and duration as well as compensation for recent hypos or alcohol.LOG BOOK, STATS AND CHARTINGRapidCalc effectively replaces your log book, providing a full 90-day history of blood glucose readings, insulin doses and carbohydrate intake which can be exported via email for archive or analysis.

Always discuss use of the calculator with your health care professional and only use personal settings agreed with them. If you are in any doubt as to the correct insulin dose always follow the advice of your healthcare professional.
With a bit of time and effortv spent on setting up the program parameters, I have found this to be the most accurate way of calculating my insulin dosage. Practically all guesswork is eliminated if you enter the carb content of your meals.
The only con is that the graphing/charting feature may not provide the information you desire. However, since you can email the entire record in .CSV format, that is not a problem. You can use Excel (or similar) to produce any chart you wish.
