This small application allows you to calculate your demand of insulin, according to the nutrition values of your meal.

Firstly, you need to tell the application the amount of carbohydrate (in gram) in the amount of your ingredient (in gram). Secondly, you need to indicate your meal portion (in gram).

Based on this information your phone will calculate your demand of insulin.

You can as well indicate your personal insulin factor. If you are a type I diabetes patient you most likely know this parameter, otherwise please ask your doctor or keep the initial value of “1”.

On the second screen (Parameters) you can specify three different personal insulin factors per day, and you can fine-tune the settings when the average morning, noon or evening will start for you.

Back on the first screen you can click on the “clock”-icon. Your phone will, depending on the concrete time, select the right value you have specified on the second parameter screen.

On the “insulin demand screen”, you can as well tot up insulin value, which comes in handy as usually your dinner will consist of multiple ingredients.

On the “parameter screen”, you can as well switch on the “Bread Unit Calculation” instead of Carbohydrates per Unit. The Bread Unit Calculation was very common in Europe, mainly in Germany, Luxemburg, Austria and Switzerland until 2006.

Those of you still used to bread units, can fine-tune this setting to be switched on. The personal insulin factor fields will change to the color red to indicate to you that this setting is active.
