The Insulin-Rx app is an insulin dosing calculator intended for use by healthcare professionals that prescribe insulin. The app uses weight and total daily insulin to calculate insulin units/kg/day, carbohydrate-to-insulin ratio, insulin sensitivity (correction factor), as well as basal and fixed meal dosing by using 50% basal and 50% bolus insulin per day.
A hemoglobin A1c to average glucose converter is included as well a body mass index calculator based on patients height and weight.
The Insulin Sliding Scale app conveniently creates a bolus insulin sliding scale which can be shared with a patient. This app allows the health care provider to choose the insulin dose, sensitivity, and glucose target and uses this information to create a narrative instruction for the patient to use.
