Drinking and Diabetes – There is an App for that
Yes Virginia there is a app for drinking with diabetes. A friends sent us an email from the UK diabetes meeting about a poster presentation about it and shared website and press release that in part says:
Having type 1 diabetes means that it is important to know how to keep safe when having alcohol. The recently launched Type 1 Diabetes Friend: Alcohol Guide is a free mobile app, aimed at helping young people find out what to do to keep safe and how alcohol can affect their body.
This innovative tool has been designed by part-time Bournemouth University PhD student Andy Pulman as a part of his study, in collaboration with the Poole Hospital Diabetes Centre for use by their patients.
The App is available as a free download from the Apple App Store:
or the Google Play App Store for Android users:
