Diabetes management is a game of numbers. How many carbs eaten, insulin injected, blood glucose numbers. Blood glucose meters usually come with a little booklet to track some of these numbers in, but they’re always small, quickly filled up, and easily lost. Digital Altitudes, LLC has software products that help you track everything you need to know in your Windows or Mac computer or in your iPhone. With Diabetes Pilot, you can track your blood glucose, weight, and blood pressure measurements and log your exercise. The integrated food database lets you track the nutritional content of the food you eat. Diabetes Pilot can even estimate an insulin dose for your meal or help you correct a high glucose. You can even graph your weight and blood glucose measurements to look for trends. All these features are available in both desktop versions and in the iPhone version (iPhone screenshots shown above). The iPhone version has all the features of the desktop versions. It lets you track everything while you’re away from home, and then you can easily transfer the data to the desktop version later, if you choose to use both versions. Diabetes Pilot for Mac is $29.99 and $34.99 for PC; both desktop versions are available as a free trial. Diabetes Pilot for iPhone is $14.99 in the iTunes app store.
