From User Reviews

The following users tracked diabetes with MyNetDiary on the web and iPhone. Our Android app has the same core features. Great App!

As someone newly diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, this app has really helped me stay on top of my diet, medications and glucose levels.

by Arj3rd – Feb 15, 2015 First App Review

I have been a diabetic (insulin dependent), for 15+ yrs. I have fought A1C all those yrs (readings range 8.3-7.3). This App gave me the missing link for full control and weight loss as a plus. Now have all readings below 7.0.

by SteveMorro – Apr 7, 2015 Great app! Covers all areas of diabetes management

This app covers everything. I can plan my meals and snacks for the day. I can plan my meds, vitamins. I can log all of my glucose readings so that when I go to the doctor, I just hand him my phone and let him scroll through.

What Makes MyNetDiary the Best Diabetes & Diet Tracker for Android

First of all – comprehensiveness. MyNetDiary has everything you may need to stay on top of your diabetes or pre-diabetes – food and carb tracking, medications, exercise, test results, body measurements and much more.

Secondly, MyNetDiary is easy. The most frequent words in thousands of MyNetDiary reviews by its users are “easy” and “very user-friendly”. Taking only a few minutes per day, MyNetDiary can be with you for a long time. It’s both comprehensive and friendly – the features are there when you need them, making tracking easy and you – successful.

Finally, MyNetDiary is the most advanced, modern diabetes app for the Android. It is optimized for all phone and tablet sizes.

You can link MyNetDiary can with Fitbit, and Withings, automatically syncing your fitness data (included with MyNetDiary Premium).

MyNetDiary is more than just the app – you can use our online service, log foods and exercises and participate in our Online Community supported by Registered Dietitians for more help and motivation.

Blood Glucose

MyNetDiary provides easy and comprehensive blood glucose tracking. You can enter multiple readings per day, specifying time and optional notes.

Also, you can assign a label to each blood glucose reading, specifying, for example, whether this was a fasting, before meal, or 2-hour after meal reading. Moreover, you can assign multiple labels, not limited to these meal-related labels, but also capture your feelings, symptoms – anything you want to track and associate with the reading, to help you see patterns.

The Blood Glucose row on the Home screen calculates your daily averages.

MyNetDiary supports mg/dl and mmol/L units.

Blood Glucose Ranges

You can also create multiple ranges of blood glucose levels, for different situations.

You can create special ranges for fasting, pre-meal, post-meal. In fact, as you specify which labels are applicable for each range, you can create ranges for any other conditions, for example, for 2-hour post-meal readings.

Low out-of-range readings are highlighted in red and high out-of-range readings are highlighted in yellow.

Also, you can specify the lowest reading below which is considered as hypoglycemia for you and highest reading above which it is considered very high blood glucose and have MyNetDiary assign these labels automatically.

#1 Food Database, Easy Food Tracking

To keep tabs on your diabetes and blood glucose, you need to track your carbs and other nutrients. Logging foods is the real challenge in diabetes tracking, as you measure blood glucose only a few times a day, but you need to enter many more foods each day.

Tracking foods is much more labor intensive and thus it’s critical to make it super easy in a diabetes app!

MyNetDiary provides the best food database in the world, saving your time entering foods. Currently, MyNetDiary has over 805,000 verified foods.

The quality of the database is ensured by MyNetDiary’s PhotoFood Service. If some food is not in the database or out-of-date, you can send us its photos directly from the app, and we will enter or update all of its nutrients, saving you time and ensuring accuracy.

MyNetDiary is so fast that it searches as your type, you don’t need to type whole words and you can see results faster.

Carb Tracking for Diabetes

MyNetDiary Diabetes Tracker goes beyond providing the best food database and food entry.

Timing is very important in diabetes and MyNetDiary allows recording time of everything – foods, exercises, insulin, medications, and other trackers.

Also, if you eat more than three meals a day (as diabetes educators recommend) and record their time, MyNetDiary shows additional meals as several snacks, keeping track their time and carb count.

MyNetDiary food database keeps track of over 45 nutrients, including fiber and sugar alcohols. MyNetDiary can calculate net carbs and diabetes carb count, and lets you select them as your main carb type.

Carb counts are displayed on the Home screen, Meals, and for individual foods.

Optional Insulin Tracking

For Type 1 diabetes and other insulin users, you can turn on insulin tracking in MyNetDiary, adding it to the Home screen.

MyNetDiary has many types of insulin pre-loaded for you – you just need to select them from the list.

You can also define your own insulin types.

Similar to blood glucose, you can assign one or more labels to each insulin dose. As always, you can create your own labels.

Medication Tracking

For your convenience, MyNetDiary can help you keep track of your medications.

You enter your medication types and doses, and then keep track of your intake, saving time, amounts, and optional labels and notes.

More Trackers

Beyond blood glucose, insulin, and medication tracking, MyNetDiary provides several other pre-loaded trackers, such as blood pressure, LDL and HDL cholesterol, Hemoglobin A1C, quality of sleep and so on.

You can also create your very own, custom trackers, and track anything you want with MyNetDiary.

When entering new values, you can also enter time, assign one or more labels, and store notes.

Diabetes Reports

Once you have your information in, MyNetDiary provides easy and powerful reports, helping you see everything together – foods and carbs, insulin, exercise, blood glucose, medications and other trackers.

The information is grouped by day periods and displayed chronologically. You can also tap each item, to see and, if needed, edit the details.

You can see different periods of each day on the same screen, swiping left and right to see different day periods.

Diabetes Weekly Overview

MyNetDiary also provides weekly reports, with the same information as daily reports, only adding an extra dimension – seeing your day periods over the course of week.

For example, you can see how your mornings differ and educate yourself on what’s working best for you.

Diabetes Charts

In addition to reports, MyNetDiary provides many charts – for weight, blood glucose, calories, nutrients, measurements, and trackers.

On blood glucose charts multiple ranges are indicated with horizontal lines.

Both portrait and landscape modes are supported.

Flexible and Customizable

MyNetDiary is highly customizable, allowing to select your diabetes type (or indicate that you don’t have diabetes), turn insulin tracking on and off, select blood glucose units and preferred carbs type. MyNetDiary support regular “total carbs”, net carbs, and diabetes carb count.

You can configure many other settings, such as metric or US units, food time tracking, using contributed foods, weight display on the Home screen and more.

In tracker settings you can configure many other options, such as target ranges for glucose, target values, units, and chart colors. You can create custom trackers for recording and charting your values.

Type I, Type II, pre-diabetes, and gestational diabetes are supported.

Barcode Scanner

For fast food entry, MyNetDiary provides a built-in barcode scanner. When you enter your daily foods, tap the scanner button to activate it and scan the barcode.

MyNetDiary barcode scanner works on iPhone 3GS, 4, and 4S. Currently, iPod Touch is not supported.

Diet Planning

In MyNetDiary, planning is easy. You enter your current weight, height, gender, age, and activity level. Next, MyNetDiary will calculate your calorie needs. After you enter your target weight and target date or weekly weight loss rate, MyNetDiary will estimate your daily calorie needs.

You can also estimate and plan your weekly exercise.

You can also customize and override your calorie targets, and customize macronutrient balance – great for low-carb and low-fat dieters!

Exercise Tracking

With MyNetDiary, you can also track exercise.

Most exercises have MET value assigned, allowing calorie calculation based on duration. If you use exercise equipment, you can enter calories directly, for any exercise. The notes field helps you keep track of other information, such as peak heart rate.

You can also create your custom exercises.

If you purchase Premium membership you can link MyNetDiary Exercise with Fitbit or Garmin activity tracker or Withings Pulse.

Recipe Editor

If you often eat the same foods together, you can create a recipe. The next time you eat them, you only need to enter one food – the recipe itself.

MyNetDiary Diabetes provides a powerful recipe editor – allowing you to adjust the recipe, to add or remove ingredients, or adjust their amounts.

Daily and Weekly Analysis

The Daily Analysis screen show your daily energy balance, estimating how much weight you are losing (or gaining) on each day.

For each day, it compares your key nutrient totals with recommendations by American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, helping you eat more healthfully.

It also provides you tips and recommendations on good eating habits, helping you be more successful.

The Weekly Analysis screen shows you energy balance and nutrient analysis for a whole week, expanding the number of nutrients included into into analysis.

More Tools

There are many more tools in MyNetDiary – overall, there are more than 50 screens in MyNetDiary Diabetes & Diet Tracker. They are there when you need them – water tracking, notes, vitamins and a full set of body measurements – not only weight!

Diabetes Forecast

Bet_Noire/Thinkstock

There’s an app for pretty much everything these days—reading magazines (Diabetes Forecast has its own!), playing games, even flipping a coin. A whole host of them focus on helping you get healthier, and that includes managing diabetes. But with thousands of diabetes apps available for download, how can you know which is best for you?

We’ve rounded up our favorite apps based on how well they help simplify daily diabetes management and how many self-care behaviors (below) they help encourage.

Glucose Buddy

This app lets you log your blood glucose level, carb intake, medication doses, A1C results, exercise, and more. It’s for people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

If you use an Apple iPhone, you can register at glucosebuddy.com to sync your log to the website, input your glucose values, or print blood glucose and medication logs for a health care provider. Send reports to a health care provider via the app or website.

Cons: Glucose Buddy does not sync with meters, continuous glucose monitors (CGMs), or pumps. Both Android and Apple users can access glucosebuddy.com, but only Apple users can sync their app with the website; Android users have to manually input their log on the web portal. There is no way to back up your data, so if you lose your phone and you haven’t manually entered logbook data on the website (or if your Apple device didn’t sync), you’ll have to start over. A built-in calorie tracker and food database is planned, but no release date has been set yet.

Diagnoses of diabetes, a condition where the body can’t properly process glucose, have doubled in recent years, and nearly 9% of the global population now has the condition.

But just because diabetes is common, it doesn’t mean it isn’t serious: diabetes can leave people blind, needing an amputation, and with a higher risk of heart disease. Treating diabetes accounts for £1 in every £10 spent by the NHS in the UK, and $327 billion a year in the US. So could technology give diabetics a better way of managing their condition?

For a long time, to get their glucose reading, diabetics would have to prick their finger with a needle, squeeze out a drop of blood, and then use a handheld device to assess how much sugar was in it. It’s a far from ideal process – it only gives a snapshot of glucose control, not a long-term view. It has to be repeated several times a day, and it’s tricky and painful to boot.

Technology aimed at insulin-using diabetics became mainstream a few years back with the arrival of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) devices. These use small sensors that sit on a diabetic’s body, monitoring their blood sugar levels constantly and relatively unobtrusively, through a small tube that samples the amount of glucose in the interstitial fluid. This technology is transforming diabetes control for its users. By giving them a better view of what their blood glucose was doing, CGMs enabled insulin-dependent diabetics to take steps to keep readings in the right range.

As well as being more convenient, CGM offers a direct pay-off for diabetics’ health too: those with better glucose control are less at risk of developing debilitating and life-threatening complications.

Now the companies that make these readers are looking to take advantage of broader technology trends to enable diabetics to better manage their condition.

The systems from Dexcom, one of the largest makers of CGM devices, are “a mix of medical technology with consumer technology”, says its CTO Jake Leach. Whereas once CGMs would send a user’s glucose reading to a separate handheld device, now makers are looking to exploit the potential of wearables and smartphones. Users can get their readings sent over Bluetooth Low Energy to hardware including iOS and Android phones and watches.

“The smartphone platform really opened up a lot of functionality that is not typical in medical devices,” Leach explains.

One of the new features enabled by smartphone and mobile app use is remote monitoring. Through the Dexcom app, parents now keep an eye on their children’s glucose levels even when they’re not with them.

“The parent has the safety blanket of knowing how things are going. They can set up alerts and alarms that can communicate if there’s an issue that has to be dealt with, so they don’t have to worry as much,” Leach says.

Remote management isn’t only taking place between parents and children – glucose readings are getting social, with the app allowing users to share their readings with a handful of friends and family via smartphone. Remote monitoring users who share their readings with others have lower average glucose readings, less time spent with low glucose, and more in the normal range, says Leach: “The folks that utilise that technology have better glucose control than those that don’t and we kind of attributed it to the fact that they’ve got others helping them manage their diabetes.”

As well as friends and family, CGM users can share their readings with their medical team. Glucose-monitoring apps can give physicians a long-term overview of how their patient’s blood sugar has been doing, and why – whether it’s spiked or fallen due to a new medication or lifestyle change, for example. This can help guide how they treat the condition. “Diabetes is such an evolutionary thing and it develops over time and changes. You have to always be looking to change the way of managing it,” Leach says.

For those who are keen to share even more, Dexcom’s CGM app can feed data into other health apps through both Apple’s HealthKit and Google Fit.

Dexcom already has a link with Google beyond its integration with Android: the CGM company inked a deal with Verily, the life-sciences arm of Google’s parent company Alphabet, back in 2016 and amended it this year. The first hardware to sprout from the R&D partnership will be Dexcom’s next generation of CGM, the G7. Unlike its predecessor, the G7 will be an all-in-one design carrying Verily electronics as well as Dexcom sensor tech onboard, and is expected to launch next year.

Verily and Dexcom have also teamed up on software, with Verily helping out with user engagement – how to make sure that the app can keeping gaining functionality without making it too confusing for people that haven’t used the app, or continuous glucose sensing, before.

And there is likely to be a lot of new users: the number of diabetics in the world is expected to rise from 171 million in 2000 to 366 million in 2030. Most of that growth, however, is likely to be in type 2 diabetics, who take other medications other than insulin and so don’t use CGM.

However, CGM technology could ultimately be rolled out to people with type 2 diabetes, and those in the pre-diabetic range – people whose blood sugar is higher than normal but not yet diabetic. The idea of getting people who aren’t on insulin to use CGM is to show the impact of certain foods and behaviours on their glucose levels, and so help them to keep levels in the right range.

“Until you really have direct feedback, it can be hard to really understand why that’s important,” Leach says. “I think there can be a whole lot more around that coaching or the advice or the analytics that you put around the data to help you get more people with either pre-diabetes, or even with just general health and wellness. I think there’s a lot of opportunity and there’s quite a few pilots we’re entering into any different areas to learn more about what works for those users.”

For the traditional CGM user base – people who control their diabetes with insulin injections – the next few years are likely to bring another sea-change in technology with the advent of closed-loop or ‘artificial pancreas’ systems, single units that both monitor glucose and deliver insulin accordingly.

Other developments that could reshape diabetes management are on the horizon: technology that allows glucose readings to be taken non-invasively – that is, hardware that can measure blood glucose without the need for, well, blood. Researchers are looking to create systems that can measure glucose through sweat, tears or even just a user’s vital signs.

“It is really challenging to measure glucose non-invasively,” Leach says, “and no one has come up with a technology that is capable of measuring glucose to the kind of level of reliability and accuracy that’s needed.” Lots of companies are working on the field, but there’s been no breakthrough yet – Google’s own experimental efforts to monitor glucose through contact lenses was kicked into the long grass.

That said, the future of CGM is going to be tightly tied to the development of consumer tech like smartwatches or other wearables. “There’s a good possibility that you’re going to have even tighter integration than we have today with those types of products,” Leach says.

ADVANCEMENTS IN GLUCOSE METERS AND INSULIN INJECTORS

Glucose meters are essential for anyone with diabetes. The One Drop Chrome is a Bluetooth-enabled blood glucose meter that sends readings to the accompanying iPhone or Android app. The free app allows users to track and monitor blood glucose, activity, food, and medication. Users can also share their data with the healthcare providers. An optional coaching program is also available on a subscription basis for education and support from a certified diabetes coach. The coaches help users manage their diabetes, eat more healthily, become more physically active, deal with stress, and more.

A continuous glucose-monitor system such as Abbott’s FreeStyle Libre uses a sensor to measure your interstitial glucose level. The sensor wirelessly sends the data to a receiver, smartphone, smartwatch, or tablet. The system can tell users when their levels are steady, rising, or falling. DiaTribe notes continuous glucose-monitoring systems can be covered by many insurance plans, including Medicare, which typically pays 80 percent of the cost.

For people with type 1 diabetes who have been wearing insulin pumps for years, the introduction of smart insulin pens is a game changer. The recently introduced InPen uses Bluetooth technology to combine a reusable injector pen with iPhone or Android app to calculate the proper dosage of insulin and keep track of injection data.

Dexcom has revealed that its G6 glucose tracker will soon be able to send glucose monitoring data directly to your Apple Watch. It’s a huge boost for Apple Watch users with diabetes.

The news comes from Dexcom CEO Kevin Sayer, who has announced that the G6 diabetes system would undergo a number of upgrades over the next year, one of which will involve allowing diabetes patients to bypass their smartphone and track their glucose levels directly on a smartwatch.

The Dexcom G6 wearable was released last year, marketed as an FDA permitted glucose tracking device that does not require fingersticks or calibration. It works by inserting a small sensor just beneath the skin. The sensor continuously measures glucose levels and sends data to a device through a wireless transmitter.

The Continuous Glucose Monitoring system allows users to see their glucose number in real time on a smartphone or smartwatch, share their data with up to 10 followers and set customisable alerts and alarms to notify them when their glucose levels are getting too high or too low.

Dexcom plans to completely bypass the smartphone for Apple Watch users, allowing diabetics to track their glucose levels without always having their smartphone on hand.

“It’s coming”, said Sayer about the new Apple Watch feature. “And this tool is great for people with diabetes”.

Earlier this year, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that the company wanted to make a “significant contribution” in healthcare.

While the Apple Watch already has software in place to monitor other serious health conditions, it doesn’t currently have any built-in tech designed for diabetics. There are rumours that Apple is working on its own glucose tracking features but there is no guarantee that this feature will be ready anytime soon.

Apple periodically updates its app store with lists of apps for particular groups of people. Even as the new iOS 8, with a built in Health app, goes into beta, Apple has added a new list: “Apple’s Apps for Diabetics.” According to the CDC’s 2011 fact sheet, diabetes affects 25.8 million people, or 8.3 percent of the US population.

The apps on Apple’s list aren’t all from the US, and they don’t all target diabetes specifically. While many are tracking and management apps for blood glucose and insulin levels, others are more general purpose apps for eating specific diets, which people with diabetes could benefit from. The list includes mostly consumer-facing apps but one app for doctors, as well as one for kids and one for pregnant women with diabetes.

The list has some overlap with the list of top-grossing diabetes apps Research2Guidance released in March, but app developer Azumio, which Research2Guidance identified as the market leader, has no apps on Apple’s list. Read on for 13 apps Apple has highlighted for its users with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes.

Diabetik by UglyApps (free)

This British-made diabetes app raised $11,600 on Kickstarter in February 2013. It’s a free app for diabetes management that focuses on quick data entry and aesthetically designed interactive charts, as well as reminders that can trigger either at a particular time or in particular location. The app helps people with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes monitor how much and how often they’re eating, their blood glucose levels, and whether they’ve taken their medication.

Diabetes in Check by Everyday Health (free)

Diabetes in Check, from the recently-IPO’d Everyday Health is a type 2 diabetes management app that features a wide range of tools. It includes diabetes coaching designed by a certified diabetes educator, trackers for blood glucose and medication, reminders, and tools for healthy eating, including a food tracker with a barcode scanner and a recipe database. For a $3.99 subscription, users can get daily personalized food recommendations.

Diabetes Companion by mySugr GmbH (free)

Diabetes Companion is one of two apps on the list by mySugr, an Austrian company that raised money earlier this year. The company adds a little bit of gamification to the traditional diabetes management app. “The Companion is a charming, sometimes outspoken diabetes manager that focuses on making your diabetes data useful in everyday life,” the app store description says. “Adding elements of fun, gamification, and immediate feedback (with attitude!) through a diabetes monster to help keep you motivated and involved in your therapy.” The app works with Sanofi-Aventis’ iPhone-connected IGBStar meter and is a registered class I medical device.

iCookbook Diabetic by Publications International (free)

This is a special edition of the iCookbook app just for people with diabetes. The app delivers new, free diabetes-friendly recipes every month. It also has built-in kitchen tools like conversion charts and timers and voice activation, so the user can proceed through a recipe even with messy hands. The user can save and share recipes or even pull up a random one by shaking the phone.

Track3 by Coheso ($5.99)

Track3 Diabetes Tracker & Logbook App tracks an impressive number of health factors for people with diabetes, including food, blood glucose, insulin, medications, exercise and weight. Food tracking can be done out of a built-in database, or users can program their own foods and create shortcuts for quick inputs. When the user works out, they can enter calories burned right from a cardio machine or estimate them for a workout. Tracking metrics can be displayed on multiple mobile devices or on the web.

mySugr Junior by mySugr GmbH (free)

MySugr’s second entry on the list is their app for kids. Here’s the app store description:

“The mySugr Junior App was developed to make managing diabetes easier for kids. It also enables parents to keep control over the therapy, even when they’re not around and their child is at school or out with friends. The app resembles a game in which the children get points for every entry. The goal is to score a particular amount of points every day. This encourages kids to take care of their diabetes regularly.

“A little diabetes monster accompanies the kids through the app and gives feedback on their entries. The child can enter data such as blood glucose levels, food and insulin or take a picture of his meals, but they can also request help whenever the parents are not around. All entries can be sent as a push message or email from within the app to the parents’ phone. This way, the child can ask for feedback on calculating carbs or the insulin dose.”

HealthyOut by HealthyOut (free)

A lot of diabetes apps are geared toward helping people with diabetes cook the best food for managing their condition. While not geared exclusively at people with diabetes, HealthyOut is about helping people eat at and order from restaurants while maintaining a diabetic-friendly diet. The user searches local restaurants with filters like “Low Carb,” “Low Fat,” and, their most popular filter, “Not a salad.” According to the company, HealthyOut dishes have half the calories and half the fat compared to the average restaurant meal.

Foodily by Foodily (free)

Foodily is another popular app Apple has included on the list that doesn’t have a specific diabetes application. Rather, the app helps users find, keep track of, and share recipes. As a “food social network” that lets people with similar tastes share recipes, though, the app could be helpful in creating a community of people with specific dietary needs and calorie requirements.

Whole Foods Market Recipes by Whole Foods (free)

Similarly, Whole Foods Market Recipes is a general meal planning app that doesn’t court specific disease populations. However, its 3,000 recipe database can be searched by several filters including “special diets”.

GoMeals by Sanofi-Aventis (free)

GoMeals, by Sanofi-Aventis, is designed to help people living with diabetes make healthy food choices, but can be used by anyone who is interested in tracking the nutritional content of their meals. The app includes access to CalorieKing’s nutritional database, which contains more than 25,000 common food items and more than 200 restaurant menus.

The GoMeals “Today’s Plate” feature helps monitor each day’s calorie intake, as well as the distribution of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. These three nutrient categories are also represented in a pie chart on the touch screen. A restaurant locator feature helps users locate restaurants based on their current location and the type of cuisine they prefer, as well.

CarbsControl by Coheso ($2.99)

Coheso is the most prolific developer on Apple’s list, with three entries. The second, CarbsControl, is a food logging and carb counting app built for anyone, not just people with diabetes. Its database contains carbohydrate and other nutrition details for over 100,000 foods, including 500 specific food brands and 300 popular fast food and casual dining restaurants.

Diabetes in Pregnancy by Coheso ($5.99)

Coheso also has an app specifically for pregnant women with gestational diabetes. “This Diabetes in Pregnancy App helps you track all of the factors that keep your blood sugar balanced during and after your pregnancy,” the app description reads. “The app makes it a snap to log food (nutrition), blood sugar levels, exercise, oral medications and insulin. You can email the logbook as a PDF file or a spreadsheet that you can share with your doctor.”

Johns Hopkins ABX, HIV, Diabetes Guides with Updates (free, but with a $29.99 in app purchase)

This is the only app in the list designed for doctors, one of a series of Johns Hopkins Guides on different diseases. The diabetes guide, which is a $29.99 in-app purchase “contains the essential diagnosis, classification, and management information needed for diabetic care” and enables physicians to “answer questions with recommendations for complications, drugs, and other treatments,” according to the app store description.
