DiabetesPA App


Diabetes.co.uk is Europe’s largest online community of people with diabetes. The site receives over one million visitors a month and over 125,000 registered, active members.

Diabetes.co.uk is a community website providing visitors from across the world with up-to-date news and information on diabetes management. The website serves as a community forum where diabetes sufferers, friends and families can speak openly to find answers to their questions.

Having already created an iOS app to help diabetics effectively manage their condition, Diabetes.co.uk wanted to offer its Android users a more interactive, enhanced mobile experience. Diabetes.co.uk chose Mubaloo to develop and design the app.

Mubaloo worked with Diabetes.co.uk to reimagine its iOS app for Android. Much of the functionality from the iOS app needed to remain, but there was an opportunity to improve upon the design and optimise it for Android’s UI design language. With a focus on improving UX, Diabetes.co.uk wanted the app to embrace clever use of design to create a friendly user experience.

The Diabetes.co.uk DiabetesPA app for Android works as a personal diabetes assistant. The main purpose of the app is to allow diabetics to more effectively manage and understand their illness. Users are able to monitor their blood glucose, insulin, cholesterol, HbA1c and many other factors against their mood, exercise, weight and BMI, to help identify key interactions between each factor. The app will trigger high and low alerts and medication reminders, allowing users to take complete control of their diabetes.

The app provides the user with the ability to track and form graphic representations from the data, allowing users to more easily assess their progress against other influencing factors. The collection of data will assist doctors and medical practitioners when identifying any patterns or recurring problems. For a long term control method, customisable health reports can be generated directly from the app and exported.

The Diabetes.co.uk DiabetesPA app is set to aid diabetes.co.uk’s 20,000 members in managing the disease more effectively and therefore improving quality of life for sufferers. Diabetes.co.uk has found that with the app, day to day management of the disease is much easier for users. Due to its personalised track and monitor functionality, users now have a better understanding of the illness and the factors that influence their health.
