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.

What's New in Version 2.1.6
We have been informed by Apple that changes to their approvals policy means that "Apps that calculate medicinal dosages must be submitted by the manufacturer of those medications or recognized institutions such as hospitals, insurance companies, and universities". Since we are not such an institution, we are now negotiating with an Australian hospital to allow us to re-submit the application in their name. Apple have agreed to allow us to continue offering the application until the 1st May 2016 by which time we hope to have an agreement in place which will allow a seamless transition. Existing users should not be affected by this decision. Please monitor our website at www.gilport.com/rapidcalc for more details.
Changes in this version:
- Fixed display bug in settings
The Essential Diabetes App
Recommended by my diabetic educator and supported by my endocrinologist I started using this app has my diabetes type two became diabetes type one essentially. This has made my life much simpler and more accurate dosing has been obtained. I can't imagine why Apple would consider removing the app from the store and hope the company can get sponsored by an American hospital.
No edits or additions allowed
It won't let me enter in a dose or blood sugar reading that happened in the past. When I go to edit after I enter in something, all the numbers and other days and times are grayed out and it won't let me select them. This defeats the entire purpose.
Also wish you could just type in the actual glucose reading instead of using a slide
The perfect app for me
The perfect app for me as a non-pumper is RapidCalc and I use it throughout daily- it has the same calculation capability of a pump (pre-sensor), meaning you input your i:c ratios with manually set changes through the day, you slide a bar to input BG, and it auto calculates the dose. Easy to adjust for activity level and has a nice display for your history. At any time you can get into the app and see how much iob (insulin on board) there is which is why I was looking for it to begin with and has saved my bacon a few times. It also has a nice graph for 7-30-90 days and you can email all your data. Beautifully designed app, exactly what I was looking for, can't recommend highly enough.
