My name is Christine and I am a type I diabetic who co-designed the CarbDB. It’s a very useful app because it allows you to record and keep track of carbohydrates (carbs) by item, meal, food group, and restaurant. The data is held historically, so if you are at a restaurant, rather than digging through notes or guessing at what the carb count is for a specific item/s, you can use CarbDB to find that information in a swipe.
You don’t have to be a diabetic to be to utilize the cool functionality of this app, but if you are a diabetic, the application provides a simple entry screen that allows you to enter your insulin to carb ratio. With the CarbDB counting your carbs and storing your insulin to carb ratio, much of the math is already done for you when deciding how much insulin is needed.
The CarbDB is not a medical device and is not intended for use as your sole tool in managing diabetes, but is rather a complimentary application that enables you to access carb information.
