An estimated 246 million people world-wide have diabetes, with a forecasted 380 million by 2025 . Technology has provided this growing number of diabetics with conveniences like glucometers, insulin pumps, and continuous glucose monitoring. However, a method of recording pertinent information вЂ“ specifically blood-sugar (or glucose) readingsвЂ”remains limited. Diabetics often record glucose readings by hand in a log book then share this information with a physician, which assists in maintaining and improving their overall health. But these log books inconvenience the lives of diabetics because they must be transported and require a writing utensil. Entering glucose levels, dates, and times by handвЂ”every time blood-sugar is testedвЂ”proves an arduous task. Thus, I propose a solution to alleviate these inconveniences with the development of the Android Diabetes Management System, hereafter referred to as Android DMS.
Android DMS is a phone application designed for use on the Android cellular phone. It is intended to digitally record and analyze diabetic usersвЂ™ information, which can then be synchronized to a remote web server. Android DMS has the capability to store the most common data that type 1 or type 2 diabetics and their doctors track, including glucose levels, weight, and A1C percentages (average three-month blood sugar measurement). The application also allows the user to assign goals to these parameters, providing milestones for which to strive. Physician contact information, as well as the specific unit of measurement the user prefers, round out the applicationвЂ™s capacities. Specifically, there are three methods of reporting usersвЂ™ recorded data and goals: chart, graph, and statistics. The chart mode displays records in a columned list, ordered by date of recording. To visualize progression, the graph mode represents the recorded data as a line graph. Finally, the statistics mode provides a general, quantitative summarization of the recorded information.
Another useful aspect of Android DMS is the ability to analyze your glucose readings based on time of day. For example, a diabeticвЂ™s glucose levels may consistently rise in the morning, but drop very low by lunch time. Android DMS allows the user to recognize these unhealthy trends when blood sugar levels change, then present this information to their doctor for appropriate action.
The Android DMS user has the ability to synchronize data recorded by the application to a remote web server. Once the data has been received by the web server, the user can access the same data from any PC with an internet connection and print it prior to a doctor visit.
With Android DMS, diabetics no longer need to carry a log book, since all of their information can be accessed on the Android cell phone. Rather than manually record data, users need only grab their Android cell phone, run the application, and enter their recordings.
Android DMS makes no claim to cure or prevent the side effects of diabetes, but it offers todayвЂ™s increasing number of diabetics a portable, convenient tool to manage the disease.
