Diabetic man develops app to help him manage his condition

Shared by Ana Duarte on 2019-07-09 10:07

About the solution

GliControl allows the user to keep a daily log for diabetes, check a list of glucose records/carbohydrates/insulin, know daily where he should administer insulin and calculate the total carbohydrates and insulin doses. The app records the data, stores it, analyses it and sends it via e-mail, also producing reports that the user can export.

Hugo launched this app in 2013. He was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2011, and at that time he wasn’t able to find an app that would him monitor diabetes.

The app was developed for smartphone (iOS and Android), and for desktop (Mac and Windows). It’s free on all the platforms. However, it still hasn't received clearance from the Portuguese authority for medication and health products.
