How can apps and software programs help with diabetes?

ANSWER

From smartphone apps to insulin pumps, a host of gadgets can help you manage this disease.

For instance, sophisticated apps and software programs let people with diabetes who use regular glucose meters track and analyze blood sugar trends. You can download and store data from your meter onto a computer, and then view charts that show how often your levels were within normal ranges, as well as above or below normal.
