Abstract

This study is an evaluation of mobile application (apps) with the intention to collate materials appropriate for the proposal of a mobile app for type 2 diabetes self-management. In order to decipher the most vital aspects to be included in the app, an evaluation of mobile apps pertaining to nutrition and diabetes management were investigated. It was found that there is a lack of mobile apps that have all-encompassing features regarding the management of the disease. Future app developers looking to develop a mobile app that is efficient in type 2 diabetes self-management should include each feature as follows: blood sugar level tracking, medication tracking, meal tracking, insulin tracking, weight tracking, nutrition and exercise advice, goal setting, shareability to doctors, contain reminders for many activities within the app, and allow for customization per mobile app user.
