MyPAL: A Digital Diabetes Diary with a Responsive Social Avatar

Ligthart, Mike

MyPAL is a digital diabetes diary that children can use to record their insulin use, carbohydrate
intake and blood glucose values as well as write something about their day and how they feel. With
that information the children can more easily link their diabetes values, what they eat and how
they feel together. With this insight they can manage their insulin use and diet more efficiently.
Besides children also medical professionals, parents and researchers benefit from this
information. For example, a diabetes nurse can improve the treatment plan, parents can get a
better idea how their child is doing and researchers can investigate the relationship between food,
mood and blood glucose values more closely.
