A free version of an app to help prevent diabetes complications is available for download.
Intellin, by Gendius, allows you to track how you are managing your diabetes – such as recording blood sugars, carbohydrate intake, body mass index, and insulin dosages – with the unique benefit of the app indicating your risk of developing complications.
During the setup, you are taken through three sections of background questions, and the app uses these to generate a risk profile. The app then sends daily hints and tips on how to prevent these complications. The platform has been built after extensive collaboration with people with diabetes and healthcare professionals.
Gendius co-founder, Chris Genders said: “After being diagnosed with diabetes… it is great to now see an app on the marketplace that is unique and based around the individual’s needs. Everyone’s diabetes is different but the complications we go on to develop are the same.”
