RapidCalc is proudly supported by GlucoMen in UK and Ireland.
RapidCalc is a sophisticated bolus insulin dose calculator for diabetics following a basal-bolus regimen. With intelligent tracking of insulin on board, automatic carbohydrate ratio and blood glucose target selection, RapidCalc dramatically simplifies blood glucose management. Complete with detailed history, charting and statistics features, RapidCalc is designed to be easy to use and easy to live with.
INSULIN ON BOARD TRACKING
Can't remember when or how much you last dosed? - Don't worry. RapidCalc avoids dose stacking by keeping track of your bolus doses and factoring in Insulin On Board when calculating a suggested dose.
AUTOMATIC TARGET AND RATIO SELECTION
RapidCalc supports up to 6 different target blood glucose levels, correction factors and carbohydrate ratios for different times of day and automatically selects the appropriate values when calculating a suggested dose.
QUICK DATA ENTRY AND DOSE SUGGESTION
Unique slide-and-tap controls let you enter your blood glucose and carbohydrate values quickly and easily. Simply drag the slider close to your value and then tap on the slider rail to make fine adjustments. As you adjust your values RapidCalc instantly recalculates suggested meal and correction bolus doses.
BASAL DOSE RECORDING WITH REMINDERS
RapidCalc also makes it easy to record your background insulin doses and supports up to three preset doses with optional reminders.
"PUMPING WITHOUT A PUMP"
RapidCalc delivers many of the benefits normally associated with an insulin pump and indeed users describe it as being like "pumping without a pump". With RapidCalc it is possible to achieve control similar to that of a well set up pump.
ACTIVITY BASED DOSE ADJUSTMENT
Integrated dose adjustment for exercise based on intensity and duration as well as compensation for recent hypos or alcohol.
LOG BOOK, STATS AND CHARTING
RapidCalc effectively replaces your log book, providing a full 90-day history of blood glucose readings, insulin doses and carbohydrate intake which can be exported via email for archive or analysis. Built-in charts and summary statistics help you assess your blood glucose control, identify trends and even estimate your HbA1c.

Ratings and Reviews
This is a superb app! Use it at least 4 times per day!
Hope it will survive the iOS11 upgrade.
this is a great app, i have not yet been on the carb counting course so find this very helpful
Very useful app
Brilliant app as it allows you to take proper control over your insulin requirements. With a little bit of practice this app will get your HbA1c down and just as important, will also flatten your blood glucose curve considerably.
Two downsides. First is setup. It needs parameters setting that are at least approximately correct to get you started. With a bit of understanding and a couple of days tweaking I am sure most reasonably aware users could get it purring. If not, get your diabetic nurse to help - just don't bother asking an old-fashioned one that doesn't believe in patients taking control of their treatment!
Only other downside is there are still some peculiarities in the software. The worst is that if you cannot get it to record an insulin shot of over 50 units RAI, so all you highly insulin resistant folks be aware. It is still useable, but a settable parameter to allow RAI recording over 50 units would be really helpful - developers please note! On an iPhone you also can't properly see any bolus shot over 99 units. For example, a shot of 225 units shows as 22.. but records OK
Overall, a blindingly useful app and the best diabetes app I have used.
