This app was created in collaboration with Diabetes UK by Dr. Pavan Bandhu and was developed by Jagdeep Nagpal (Oxford Brookes - MSc. Computer Science & Newcastle University BSc. Computer Science)
An app tester of Insulin Calc said "..Good app that is quick and easy to use. Informative and accurate for readings. Recommended to other users.."
This app is intended to be used only by diabetes Type 1 patients.
Your valuable feedback will be greatly appreciated. Feel free to email me any time to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject "Insulin Calc". Thank you.
This app was developed for the Diabetes App Challenge to support young people with diabetes get the best out of their appointments (funded by Diabetes UK & run by Plymouth University & Peninsula School of Medicine & Dentistry)

Insulin Bolus Calculator is a medical mobile application that calculates an estimated insulin bolus with active insulin to support your food intake or to correct a high blood glucose (BG). It is very necessarily for diabetic patient (with diabetes mellitus) on insulin therapy.
Insulin Bolus Calculator is similar to "Bolus Wiard" in Medtronic Paradigm insulin pump, "Bolus Advice Calculator" in Accu-Chek Combo insulin pump, "Insulin Calculator" in OmniPod, Animas, One Touch Ping and Dana Diabecare insulin pump.
• User-friendly interface
You do not have to aim in the input field and gain values on the keyboard. Maximum large buttons help you quickly dial your blood glusoce and carbohydrates.
• Active insulin (insulin on board)
Active insulin is the bolus insulin that has already been delivered to your body, but has not yet been used. The “Insulin Bolus Calculator” considers your active insulin time setting in determining any active insulin still in your body from prior boluses. This may help prevent hypoglycemia caused by over-correcting for high blood glucose. The “Insulin Bolus Calculator” automatically tracks active insulin for you.
• Different combination
Various systems of accounting carbohydrates. Various systems of measurement of blood glucose. Different combination.
• Configuration profiles
For example you can now make a profile on sports and then just switch it on.
• Saving all data
• Fine-tuning coefficients
You can specify the individual value of each factor (eg Meal Factor) and target blood glucose values for each hour. Twenty-four interval in the day. This will allow flexibility to accommodate all the features of your treatment of diabetes.
• A full report about calculated dose
If necessary, you can view a full report on the calculation of the recommended dose of insulin. Used in calculating the you entered coefficients, and the level of active insulin and much more.
• Full freedom
The calculated insulin dose is only recommended. If this dose does not suit you, you can specify a dose of insulin. And out of this dose will be calculated active insulin.
To use this Insulin Bolus Calculator, you need the following information:
Carbohydrate counting (in grams or exchanges): you need to know which foods contain carbohydrates and how to count these.
Your blood glucose: you need to know your blood glucose (BG) from blood
In addition to your blood glucose and/or your food entry, the Insulin Bolus Calculator uses personal settings:
• carb units (grams or exchanges)
• meal factor (in carbohydrate grams/unit of insulin or insulin units/carb exchanges)
• BG units (mmol/L or mg/dL)
• correction factor (insulin sensitivity)
• target blood glucose range
• active insulin time (hours) (aka insulin on board)
Get this information from your healthcare professional, and, for best results, talk to your healthcare professional before making any changes.
How "Insulin Bolus Calculator" works.
After the "Insulin Bolus Calculator" is programmed, it can calculate an estimate of insulin you need for your correction bolus and/or your food bolus. You have the option of using the estimate or changing it as necessary.
On the main screen, select your current level of glucose in the blood. (The measurement you have to get on the meter.).
Then specify the amount of carbohydrates.
The program automatically calculates the recommended dose of insulin, with active insulin.
That would keep the calculated insulin dose and take it into consideration in calculating the active insulin following bolus, click "Accept"
To see the details of the bolus calculation , click "Detalis". On this screen you can specify your insulin dose. This dose will be considered when calculating the active insulin in the future.

My daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes last year and we needed a tool just like this, so I decided to make one and offer it to you. Proceeds from this app will go to help us get a Diabetes Alert Service Dog for my daughter.
- Input your medical protocol and life conditions,
- Run insulin Units calc,
- Check record details,
- View Statistics over period of time,
- Check HbA1c estimate based on your average data,
- View graphs,
For who ?
Especially designed for Diabetes type 1 patients, also known as insulin-dependent diabetes, following “functional insulin therapy” protocols with rapid acting insulins, either with by pump or needle injections. But also meaningful for doctors, advisers and nurses.
For what ?
First of all, because we have been dreaming for a while about it for private usage. So we are very keen on sharing our experience with you.
To compute the rapid acting insulin dose (UI) assumed to be injected according to the carbohydrates and lipid meat contents and corrective factors from your medical protocol. The input data are limited within default range values but input values keep anyway under your entire responsibility. Your data are recorded locally into your smart-phone database. You can export these data into a CSV file format (e.g. to be able to easily import your data into your PC favorite calc spreadsheet. In case of requested export (EXPORT button), the recorded CSV file will be localized onto your SD card. No data are exchanged with external devices or servers.
Full detailed statistics (average, min, max values over several time periods) are available for each parameter (Blood Glucose, Insulin Units, Carbohydrates, Lipids).
Every parameter is shown in a graphical view as well. The view is zoomable (in/out). The base view shows last week data and it can be slided or zoom over time just playing with your finger ends.
