Diabetes In Check

Everyday Health, Inc.
iOS Free

Diabetes In Check

Note: this app now seems to be entirely without any technical support. (The link provided on the iTunes site leads to another site with absolutely no indication that they support this app, and no way to contact the company to ask them why.) Given this situation, we feel we cannot recommend this app.

Help your patients keep their type 2 diabetes in check every day with the most comprehensive diabetes app on the market. They’ll get all the tools and the most-up-to-date information they need to eat better, get active, and lower their blood sugars. This step-by-step app was designed by a Certified Diabetes Educator, and created by Everyday Health, the #1 digital health information company.

The app includes digital coaching designed by a CDE with blood glucose tracking; medication tracking; feedback; and reminders. Additional tools include a carb tracker; barcode scanner; hundreds of recipes; sample menus; and tool to get active. Daily support involves message boards and daily tips. Patients can also share their data with clinicians. For an extra charge ($3.99), patients can get daily menus of diabetes-friendly recipes taking the guesswork out of healthy eating.

Overall Impressions from Around the Web:

This app just came on the market (January 14) and is only available in iOS with an Android version on the way. The few reviews in so far have been positive.

UPDATE (August 12, 2013): not recommended as there seems to be no support for tech problems.
