The Diabetes Australia app

Posted by Sharyn Rognrust, Category: Apps, Health & Wellbeing, Healthy Eating, Integrated Chronic Disease Management (ICDM),

A great resource for meal planning, latest news and health articles. It’s freely available for Android and Apple phones.

You can search for events in your state or territory using the location or map feature. When you find an event you want to attend, you can add it to your calendar, invite friends and set a reminder. You can also use the app to keep track of your appointments. Click the Health and Wellbeing section for information on when you need to see specialists and set a reminder.

The services section on the home page gives you easy access to contact details for healthcare professionals. By default, the app will find services closest to your physical location or you can type in a location.  If you turn on the GPS function, you can sort by distance to see how far away the service is. If you are away from home, on holidays or visiting someone, you can use the app to see what services are locally available.

You can also check out the great recipes, try the 30 minute yoga class by Diabetes Australia ambassador Sammy Veall and take the Fast Facts Quiz!
