RapidCalc is proudly supported by GlucoMen in UK and Ireland.
RapidCalc is a sophisticated bolus insulin dose calculator for diabetics following a basal-bolus regimen. With intelligent tracking of insulin on board, automatic carbohydrate ratio and blood glucose target selection, RapidCalc dramatically simplifies blood glucose management. Complete with detailed history, charting and statistics features, RapidCalc is designed to be easy to use and easy to live with.
INSULIN ON BOARD TRACKING
Can't remember when or how much you last dosed? - Don't worry. RapidCalc avoids dose stacking by keeping track of your bolus doses and factoring in Insulin On Board when calculating a suggested dose.
AUTOMATIC TARGET AND RATIO SELECTION
RapidCalc supports up to 6 different target blood glucose levels, correction factors and carbohydrate ratios for different times of day and automatically selects the appropriate values when calculating a suggested dose.
QUICK DATA ENTRY AND DOSE SUGGESTION
Unique slide-and-tap controls let you enter your blood glucose and carbohydrate values quickly and easily. Simply drag the slider close to your value and then tap on the slider rail to make fine adjustments. As you adjust your values RapidCalc instantly recalculates suggested meal and correction bolus doses.
BASAL DOSE RECORDING WITH REMINDERS
RapidCalc also makes it easy to record your background insulin doses and supports up to three preset doses with optional reminders.
"PUMPING WITHOUT A PUMP"
RapidCalc delivers many of the benefits normally associated with an insulin pump and indeed users describe it as being like "pumping without a pump". With RapidCalc it is possible to achieve control similar to that of a well set up pump.
ACTIVITY BASED DOSE ADJUSTMENT
Integrated dose adjustment for exercise based on intensity and duration as well as compensation for recent hypos or alcohol.
LOG BOOK, STATS AND CHARTING
RapidCalc effectively replaces your log book, providing a full 90-day history of blood glucose readings, insulin doses and carbohydrate intake which can be exported via email for archive or analysis. Built-in charts and summary statistics help you assess your blood glucose control, identify trends and even estimate your HbA1c.

Ratings and Reviews
Keeps track of all your blood sugars which must be recorded in the app. Calculates the amount of RAI = Rapid Acting Insulin based on blood sugar level, the time the last RAI shot was taken, the amount (gms) of carbohydrate to be taken shortly, the type, intensity and duration of physical activity. Also keeps track of Long Acting Insulin shots. 10-11 settings based on instructions from your health care professional. Reminders of after RAI shots. Continuous decreasing IOB= Insulin On Board. Not perfect app, heavy inputting but very helpful to manage blood sugar.
Update...Still GREAT. Thank you. Super Helpful for better understanding and Diabetes control
Still Love this app. Use every time I dose or eat, before/afterany Event. It is almost PERFECT. I tried the pump but gave up after so many failures and disconnections. Returning to RapidCalc, I now use it with a newfound appreciation. Wish I could sync Readings Via Blutooth? I tried to Reimport data into new IPhone but could not figure this out..? Still using everyday, almost everytime I test, it still great.
If I use it every time I shoot up and or eat, it becomes a perfect app. When I get lazy then it looses it's usefulness. Using this App I have way better control! Helps to remind me what I ate/shot hours earlier and to consider All the various factors that affect your blood sugar's ups and downs. Good interface. Completely customizable to your body's situation. I wish it had more graphs and that that I could send data in a simpler way. Really good. Type 1, 24 years, Novalog, Lantis, syringes.
Developer Response ,
Jonathan, thank you for the review and feedback. You can easily import your data and settings into your new iPhone using the backup function in RapidCalc and sending the resultant email to an email account set up on your new iPhone. On your new iPhone open this email and double click on each of the settings and history files attached to the backup email. This will restore both your settings and your history to your new iPhone. We also have a trial report writing facility - send your export files directly from RapidCalc to email@example.com and you will receive a comprehensive set of PDF reports emailed back to you within 30 minutes. All emails are then deleted from the server so no data is kept
Update: Four Years of Use
I've been using RapidCalc daily for over four years and without exaggeration it is the best thing I've ever done for managing my Type 1 diabetes.
I was able to adjust my numbers to create a program specifically for me that changes based on my sensitivities throughout the day. I made small tweaks until I started seeing the blood sugars I wanted. I was able to do this over a couple of weeks, instead of waiting months between doctors appointments. This app has objectively increased my likeliness of staying healthy for a long time.
I currently use the Dexcom 6 app to track my blood sugars, MyFitnessPal to record carbs of my meals, and RapidCalc to calculate those two numbers into insulin dosages. No more poorly designed PDMs, I do everything on my phone (can’t afford a Dexcom? The iHealth glucometer is cheap and uses an app). I love this setup. Ian's app has taken so much anxiety out of managing blood sugar levels.
