Diabetes Agent is being developed by a team of researchers, people living with diabetes, healthcare providers, and experts of all shapes and sizes. With support from the National Institutes of Health, the Diabetes Agent project wants to make it a lot easier to manage your diabetes.

Diabetes Agent will provide tools to interactively, on the spot, right then and there, when you need it most, manage your healthcare visits, your medications, and your diabetes! Track. Prepare. Record. Manage. Learn. Do. Your Diabetes. Under Control.

Manage Healthcare Visits!
We’ve all had the experience of going to an appointment and forgetting to bring something, or forgetting what the doctor says while we are there, or forgetting to ask that one question your really meant to ask, or, even forgetting about the appointment entirely! Diabetes Agent will help by making it easy to record, track, and access what you need to know about your diabetes, when you need to know it!

Track and Prepare for and Debrief from Appointments
We always forget things. What was it I wanted to ask the doc? Argh, I forgot my log and my meter. Not anymore. We help you prepare for your appointment, creating a checklist of things to take with you and the things you wanted to talk about.


Manage Medications!
Medication adherence, taking prescribed medications exactly how they are prescribed, is an extremely important part of diabetes management BUT it can be easy to fall off the medication adherence wagon.Ever forget to fill a prescription, or to take your meds? Are you sometimes not sure if you should be taking a medication? Worried about side effects? Experiencing a side effect? Not sure if a medication is working? Have you ever not taken your medication for any reason whatsoever? Diabetes Agent will help you overcome some of the most common barriers to solid medication management of your diabetes.


      • Overcome the top 10 reasons people fail to take their medications
      • Learn the whys and wherefores of all your medications
      • Set up reminders
      • Communicate more effectively with your healthcare providers about medications and your concerns and questions.
