Technology is penetrating every part of our everyday life, including healthcare, and many medicine-connected apps are being used by both patients and doctors. Whilst we, as users, might think of traditional pre-installed apps like “Health” or “Activity”, there is a category of apps that do not only count your steps but also make a real difference in your health.
One of “the most technologically cured” diseases worldwide is diabetes — there are numerous apps that help to combat the disease to more than 400 million people.
We at Messapps have selected 5 apps that could help you track your medical information, nutrition, and, potentially, even save your life if you’re suffering from diabetes:
- Fooducate – an application that allows you to eliminate unhealthy foods from your everyday diet. The app is also incredibly easy-to-use as you only need to scan a barcode on the product you eat or drink in order to know whether it is healthy or not.
- Glooko – this app helps you monitor your medications & the amount of carbs you have in your nutrition plan. It also integrates with fitness trackers and glucose meters so that you can monitor your health situation live.
- Diabetes: M – this app lets you track sugar level in your blood, as well as many other factors related to your health. Within this app, you can set reminders to check your blood sugar and log exercise time.
- BG Monitor – through this app you can monitor insulin level in your blood, as well as the blood pressure you have at the moment. The good side of the app is that it can work with both US and international units of measurement, and it also integrates with multiple glucometers and insulin pumps to stock your medical data.
Overall, there is a huge number of medical apps available to the public in 2019. The mobile health market is big, as well — it is expected to rise up to US$ 152 billion by 2025. North America is dominating the market and is going to increase its numbers up to 40% of mobile health-related apps, specialists say.
We believe that the most powerful and effective way to save a life should always be connected with technological empowerment, and, therefore, we are always incredibly happy while working on a world-changing product.
