“The body and type 1 diabetes” is the first application of the "Managing Type 1 Diabetes: A guide for kids and their families" series published by Panarea. The series consists in several interactive guides for kids with Type 1 diabetes, and their families.
Through animated graphics and easy-to-learn steps, children will learn important information about their condition. For the first time, they will have fun while learning how to monitor and manage their condition.
Max is an 8-year-old kid with Type 1 Diabetes, who learns how to take care of his diabetes. With the help of ‘Parrot’, his curious friend, and ‘Dr Phil Good’, his healthcare specialist, he guides other children through his own personal experiences and wondrous adventures.
Using an easy-to-use Portrait View, this interactive guide consists of a sequence of screens that introduce theme-oriented content organized by sections, including:
•The real symptoms;
•Facts & Myths about Diabetes;
•The Food Trip;
•What is Type 1 Diabetes?;
•Food & Insulin;
•Keeping the Balance;
•Getting Control; and
The application also includes two interactive activities and an optional flashcard ‘true & false’ quiz.
This is a FREE application and it is our firm intention that future titles in the series will also remain free. If your company is interested in becoming a sponsor of this initiative, please check our website at www.panarea.com.ar/diabetes

Wonderful app for kids and parents
My son is 8 and has type 1 and has really enjoyed this app. I am VERY impressed that it "talks" so for children who can't yet read or wouldn't be able to read all the words - you don't have to. The controls are very easy to understand and the information is solid. Best of all I think it reinforces what he has learned and it made him laugh too!
My 5 year old lives this app! Thank you for making an app that he can relate to his own life! I just wish there were more apps like this that catered to younger children with type 1 diabetes.
A well done app aimed at younger kids who are just learning about their diabetes. I would like to see versions for teens, adults and most importantly, the well-meaning, but misinformed people who don't know the difference
between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
