On average, people with diabetes make
up to 180 decisions about their health
every day, collecting and evaluating
valuable information on personal and
medical factors from blood sugar levels
to exercise to food choices. The care
team of people living with diabetes can
add up to more than 10 different types
of caregivers. This makes living with
diabetes complex to self-manage and

diabetes app with integrated community,
meaning that it enables connected care
for patients and clinicians. The app is
believed to be the first of its kind and has
been produced in conjunction with Dutch
Radboud university medical centre.
