The way diabetes patients cope with their disease in day-to-day routines is decisive for the development or the prevention of medical complications. Smartphones have created the ubiquitous environment to support health care with mobile applications (mHealth). This article comments on the publication by Offringa et al in JDST, which is one of few studies that tries to isolate the effects of a diabetes app. At the same time, it is a good example to discuss general aspects of mHealth in diabetes care. Treatment context, eHealth literacy, interoperability, and efficiency will determine the success of diabetes apps...

BACKGROUND: Patients using an insulin pump as part of their diabetes treatment need to calculate insulin bolus doses to compensate for a meal. Some patients do not modify their meal boluses according to changes in the amount and composition of food products in a meal. The lack of correct meal boluses leads to unstable, and therefore harmful, blood glucose levels. The aim of the present study was to test a system supporting bolus determination based on a voice description of a meal. METHODS: The bolus calculator developed (VoiceDiab) consists of a smartphone application and three remote servers for automatic speech recognition, text analysis, and insulin dosage calculation...
