Abstract

Currently there are many diabetic patients of all ages in our country. According to some studies, the number of patients has been said to exceed 10 million. One of the most focused points of this disease, which sometimes occurs congenitally and sometimes later, is to be able to observe how it progresses and to adjust the dose rates of the drugs correctly. The disease, which can be seen in both young and old people, should be followed consciously for every meal. There is almost no sector left in technology that does not benefit from mobile applications. Because these mobile applications are faster and practical to reach every kind of documents and information. Therefore, it assures more work to be done by saving time. The diabetic people spend their time on mobile devices and smart phones just as other non-diabetic people. In this study, a mobile application has been designed to help them learn more about the insulin dose they need to take a meal, their basal metabolic rate, ideal weight, body mass index, body fat percentage, and diabetes to control their diseases while living their daily lives. With this application, which includes information about both insulin and diabetes, it is aimed to help people to be more conscious.
