    Hey team,
    I'm T1, have been for 8 years (it's my diaversary tomorrow!). I'm using a pump and a Libre, I have all the tools to keep my diabetes in check and lose the weight I've been slowly gaining, but I just am not holding myself accountable for it. I was hoping there was some sort of app or tool of some kind someone might know of that helps keep you accountable? Tracks HbA1c, weight, blood sugars, food? Any tips would be appreciated.

    Hello @Tswa welcome to the forum.

    There are a few out there and few of us use the MySugr app, might be worth a look, it is like a diary where you can add in lots of data. There is 'subscription fee' (I use the base free version) that you can also pay for that, I think, not sure gives more detailed reports but you can also photograph your foods, usuful for keeping track of carbs/injections ratio etc.

    I down loaded Diabetese M (I use Android) which is meant to do a similar thing but not started using yet so will have to report back.
