Diabetes Nurse for iOS

Developer's Description

Having your own diabetes nurse ( or educator, if you wish) always with you...

The app Diabetes Nurse gives advice on how to use various devices which are used for injecting insulin, Glucagon and GLP-1 analogues. There are more than ten commonly used devices for injecting insulin and seven devices used for injecting GLP1 analogues, a class of drugs that is used for treating Type 2 Diabetes. The advice given is according to the manufacturer's directions for use.

Neither the patients nor most healthcare providers are familiar with the use of all of the devices, and the app should help with the correct use of the devices featured. Also, general diabetes advice is given in one of the app sections.
