A new exciting app has just been released onto the Apple apps store that is designed to make the lives of those suffering with type 1 diabetes easier.
Those who suffer from diabetes know it can be both difficult and dangerous to calculate the portion of carbohydrates needed and how much insulin is required. Sick of guesswork and calculations, Health Apps founder and health psychologist Deborah Wilder came up with the Cook & Count Carbs App.
Wilder developed the app after learning how difficult it can be for diabetes sufferers to monitor their carb intake when her son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes age ten years old.
The Cook & Count Carbs App allows quick access information about carbs content of nearly 2000 ingredients and can stop the nightmare of counting and calculating for type 1 diabetes sufferers.
The app can also be useful for those trying to control their weight through low-carb diets such as Atkins or athletes who need to monitor their carb intake.
