    I know alot of people is tired of Diabetes apps yadda yadda but however I made something based on requests from several diabetics in Sweden.. So the background is that I and many others have this pump named Medtronic 640G. In this pump there is a "Boluz wizard" that estimates how much bolus(mealtime) insulin you need to take based on current blood suggar, amount of carbs consumed, your insulin sensitivity factor as well as your carbohydrates ratio. This is a great tool and something I can't live without nowadays.. However people without this pump doesn't have access to this tool and asked me to develop it for them and so I did.

    This is a very simple app but some people might find it useful. If it is useful I will continue to develop it based on feedback but for now it's just a test to see if someone will find it useful for them. If you want, give it a try and let me know if it's worth keeping around or if I should just forget about it.

    The Android app is located here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ted.lindstrom.boluswizard
    You need to know a few things to be able to use it:
    1. How many carbs does 1 unit of insulin take care of (for example 7)
    2. For how long is the insulin active in your body (for example 3 hours)
    3. How many mmol/l does 1 unit of insulin lower your blood glucose (for example 2.4)
    4. What mmol/l level do you want to be at normally (for example 6mmol/l)

    The iOS version is a bit simpler and does not yet contain "active insulin" but is available here:
