    Diabetes software question

    Advertisement



    I did a search on here but didn't find anything. Does anybody have a link to diabetes software for the blackberry? Looking for something more about foods, like what to and not to eat.

    I did a quick search on handango.com, but didn't necessarily find anything about diet...here is the link, maybe you could look and see if any of them will meet your needs.

    You can copy and paste this into a memo and store it on your phone:
    If your sugar's low, eat simple carbohydrates (like fructose, sucrose, dextrose), followed by some complex carbs (whole grains, pasta).
    If your sugar's high, don't eat carbohydrates

    Yep, if your sugar is low, it's better to eat something than click on your BB to ask it if you should eat something

    As csa said, a bread unit list stored on your BB should be the best. The rest is done in your brain, because only the affected person knows, how HIS diabetes is working. (There are sooo many aspects, which influence the blood sugar, your BB doesn't know (your weight, your fitness, are u sporty or fat, are u stressed or bored, ...)) Like I said, only U can/ have to know how it works!

    Simple rule: Do not eat cake and pie, and don't drink Coke (except your sugar is very low, than Coke is best (next to glucose))! The rest is allowed.

    i don't think the OP meant he was going to go looking on his bb with a low blood sugar

    i haven't found anything yet (tho I'm going to check out Ben's link above )
    i carry around a calorie king book in my purse or car its perfect for most common foods and has *most* chain restaurants too (i'm still waiting on the java version for the bb -- palm gets all the love)

    Nice! Unlike the person below you, this was helpful. I emailed a diabetic coworker about this and he got excited. Cool stuff.

    Ok the carb search function could be helpful * (but doesn't work on my phone), but the rest is pretty useless. I've experiences with diabetes too, but I'm not excited. You can enter your sugar values, but not what you ate, and how much insulin u gave (+ some notes) - I think it's senseless.

    You found my post pointless - so I'm sure you don't know much about diabetes...

    * The ammount of carbs inside of the looked for food is retrieved online. What are you doing if you are hungry, but don't have an available data connection? Are u waiting till you are back online? Another example... you can search for "pizza", but u can't enter the diameter...

    As I said, it's much better to know how many carbs are inside the food. If you are a beginner and can't remember everything, a simple list is the best:

    Apple: 1 bread unit
    Beer (0.5liter): 0.4 bread units
    Coke: don't touch
    Juice (small glass): 1 bread unit
    Milk (small glass): 1 bread unit
    Pasta (one handful): 1 bread unit
    Pizza (small): 8 bread units
    Pizza (normal): 10 bread units
    Potato (normal): 1 bread unit

    ...

    Then u have to know how much insulin you need for one bread unit:

    At the morning: 1 bread unit == 2 insulin units
    Lunchtime: 1 bread unit == 1 insulin unit
    Evening: 1 bread unit == 1.5 insulin units

    ...

    And you have to know, how much insulin you need, to decrease your blood sugar if it's to high. E.g. one insulin unit lowers the sugar about 1mmol/liter. But all this depends on your way of life. If you know that you are going to the gym after lunch, then 1 insulin unit per bread unit is to much. This are the things your BB doesn't know!

    That's mighty presumptuous of you.

    People who have a need to keep track of their glucose and carbs would be able to use a program like this. Diabetes is not an easy thing to deal with, and software like this helps people keep better track of things and help them manage their disease.

    A blood sugar measurement device does exactly the same, it stores the time and the value. The application shows you a graphic, but there are devices, which can do this, too.


    (OneTouch UltraSmart)

    The application would be much better, if you could enter some notes to each value. But this isn't possible, so it's useless.

    Edit

    Thx for the V-Clinic DIABETIC tip, will test it...

    i have that meter visitor in the back of a drawer somewhere like i said, im horrible with keeping numbers.

    now, if my bb would check my BS for me and record/manage the readings, that would be AWESOME!! lol

    aren't we all striving to find that ultimate device that does EVERYTHING?

    Carb counter for Blackberries? No problem:
    http://www.carb-counter.org/fruit/se...ckberries/0900

    Oops, you meant the RIM Blackberry mobile email solution. Here:

    More of a complete diet tracker, but it does say it has a database of 1000+ foods.
