About the solution

SocialDiabetes emerged from a personal struggle with type 1 diabetes in 2008, propelling its creator to devise an innovative solution.
Frustrated by the archaic methods of managing diabetes, especially amidst the technological advancements, the founder began developing a personalized free FDA-approved app to streamline diabetes control and enable more freedom in dietary choices.

Witnessing remarkable personal improvements, the founder shared the program with fellow patients and medical professionals, prompting the inception of SocialDiabetes. Committed to leveraging technology for comprehensive diabetes management, the platform empowers individuals with the knowledge and tools necessary to seize control of their condition. It's a patient-driven initiative disconnected from industry influences, devoted to transforming diabetes care worldwide.

The aim is to bridge the gap between doctors and patients, harnessing technology to foster a robust network of support and revolutionize the doctor-patient relationship in diabetes management. Through features like the Bolus Calculator, data synchronization with glucometers, and graphic data visualization, SocialDiabetes provides a user-friendly interface for effective diabetes control.
