The feature that separates RapidCalc from other insulin calculator apps is its consideration for those following a basal-bolus regimen with diabetes. It calculates your bolus insulin dose and provides your correct values based on your blood glucose levels, correction factors, and carbohydrate ratios. Aptly described as “pumping without a pump,” it provides the benefits of an insulin pump and offers similar levels of control over your insulin intake.
This insulin dose calculator app, RapidCalc, stands aparts from others, with its versatile approach to calculating bolus insulin dose. It has onboard tracking of insulin which automatically supplies correct values when recommending a dose based on different influences including, but not limited to, glucose levels and carbohydrate ratios. The main display screen includes features not typical of other diabetes apps such as planned exercise, alcohol intake, and more. It offers a history of carb intake and blood glucose at multiple points in the day to compare with suggestions. A screen is dedicated to basal dose entry, where thoughts and feedback can be applied. The statistics compare a cornucopia of extensive readings and warnings. The colorful and informative daily blood glucose profile shows average readings and your measurements.
