Diasend launches diabetes tracking app for consumers

Diabetes tracking software maker Diasend is launching its consumer offering called Diasend Personal, making it easier for users to manage their condition.

The web-based service can take data from glucose meters, insulin pumps and CGMs (continuous glucose meters), as well as popular fitness tracking devices and apps such as Fitbit, Nike Fuelband and Moves. Reports, however, are displayed in a universal format, regardless of the device being uploaded.

The Gothenburg, Sweden-based company says its consumer product is made for people with diabetes who would like to have a better overview of their glucose levels, insulin pump dosages, and physical activities. By keeping blood sugar levels within a normal range, people with diabetes can live longer and healthier lives.

Interested users can now register for a free Diasend Personal account; the system will provide streamlined communication between patients and clinics, allowing information to be sent prior to a doctor visit, and resulting in more productive phone consultations.

Going forward, Diasend hopes to further develop its communication platform within diabetes and launch additional products and services during next year.
