SocialDiabetes is a system for the self-management of Diabetes Mellitus Type 1.
Why SocialDiabetes? So far, diabetes has been considered as something personal and nontransferable. We think it's time for a change. How? Taking advantage of the knowledge that we diabetics have on our own disease and sharing it through this application.
Are you tired of having the same breakfast every morning? Do you need to change your boring first course for any other with the same amount of carbohydrates?
If we share information on carbohydrate intake guidelines, breakfasts and meals that are good for you might be good for me as well. We want to take advantage of the huge potential provided by CloudComputing in order to enhance our quality of life.
The application has the aim of improving your autonomy, flexibility and risk control, providing you with an aid in the self-management of both food intake and insulin dose administration.
Taking into account the insuline guidelines prescribed by your doctor, you can introduce several variables into the system that will alter the optimal dose you need to inject yourself. Thus you will gain freedom and self-confidence in daily life, in every issue related to the disease. The system is also capable of avoiding hypoglycaemias during the night, the most dangerous for a diabetic, by recommending you to have a snack before going to bed, if this is the case, and letting you
know the exact equivalence in carbohydrates of the intake. This is achieved through an intelligent system implemented within the application suited to learn your reaction to food intake and to the administered insulin dose.
SocialDiabetes will soon allow your doctor manage the control of your diabetes remotely thanks to statistics, evolutive analysis, alert management and messages between the management web and your mobile device.
There are outstanding advantages: saving time and money, and avoiding inconveniences in your daily life.
