What's New in Version 3.4.2
• Bug fixes and stability improvements.
I have tried a few diabetes apps now. This one is pretty good although quite rigid. I would like to see a "0" or skipped / missed / NA applicable status for both meds and meals sometimes I don't eat a snack, sometimes I do. Sometimes I don't need insulin - sometimes I do. Additionally, report log rewrites every week so either automatically send me the report or give me the ability to selected a long timeframe (30, 90 days). It would be a great think if it would link to MyFitnessPal for my calories / carbs so I don't have to enter it twice. Additionally, once 90 days has been collected it would be a great analytic if it could estimate my A1C (recognizing it's just an estimate). Overall, good app and I will continue to use.
Newly diagnosed, but not new to diabetes, as an RN for many years. I’m actually pretty enthusiastic about the thought that has gone into this app. I only have 2 suggestions at this time. I would love to see the ability to “build your own meal” to get dietary information per serving. I can do each ingredient separately, but it is not accurate when you are limited to guessing how much of each ingredient you ended up in your serving.
Secondly, many items in the database refer to nutritional data for one item. It’s not clear what one item is; for example, a Chicken - is that a wing, a breast, the whole bird? It makes a big difference! Please use units of weight, or standard serving. Thanks for allowing my input!
Would it hurt to be more truthful?
I was searching for a management app that would let me decide what carb levels I wanted to attain, per the newer research that a lower carb (KETO etc) medium protein, higher fat protocol was better for diabetes management. There was nothing in the description to say whether or not I could set my macronutrients. Got it installed and it immediately determines I need hundreds of calories in carb, waaaaay more than I am used to now. There was no way to dial it down to a more appropriate 5-10% of calories as carb, or medium percentage of protein. It just says bam! 50+ grams of carbs at breakfast, lunch, etc for the day.
Furthermore, it is not current with the research now in regards to the need for higher levels of fat and lower levels of carbs - so the red/yellow/green codes for foods to avoid, foods in moderation, and foods to enjoy are rather scrambled up (like butter and coconut is bad, etc. onions were good, etc.).
Oh, and in the list of foods, they had a listing for "Dal" which is lentils - very common in India cooking. I thought cool, lets see what they have to say about it!? But, they have a photo of an Avocado! Not cool!!
So I am deleting the app. It's not what I am looking for and I would not have bothered to download if the specific descriptions had been more accurate.
