    Hi,

    Im lucky enough to be on a Freestyle Libre trial and I am looking for recommendations on iPhone apps that will advise on how much insulin to inject depending on blood sugars and amount of carbs im going to eat.

    Thanks

    Gavin

    Hi Gavin, I'm afraid I don't know but it's hard to imagine any phone app telling you how much insulin to inject. I think that any such device would be one (a pump?) that is constantly measuring your glucose over a 24/7 period and using the results to calculate the insulin. Hopefully others may know.
