Hedia diabetes assistant

Making life with diabetes easier

Hedia has been developed as a tool that will make everyday life easier for people suffering from type 1 diabetes

Hedia diabetes assistant

Your personal diabetes assistant – as an iOS application

App safety

In the development of Hedia we cooperate with Chief Physician Eva Elisabeth Hommel from the Steno Diabetes Center.

Free for all

Hedia is an app for people suffering from type 1 diabetes, and is free to use.

Simple, intuitive design

Having diabetes shouldn’t be hard, and that is why we have developed an app with a simple and intuitive design. In just 4 slides you will be able to enter your blood sugar levels, the meal you intend to eat, your level of activity, and get a suggested insulin dosage.

Insulin and habits

Hedia learns from the data you enter. This means that Hedia will become smarter, and give better advice to you, if you use the app regularly.

Hedia has been developed in collaboration between developers, health care professionals and type 1 diabetes patients.

Food/carbohydrate counter

Hedia calculates your insulin dosage using carbohydrate counts and your blood sugar levels. If you are not used to counting carbohydrates, you will easily be able to find your preferred dishes, and Hedia will calculate the carbohydrate amount.

Alarms & messages

Hedia diabetes assistant notifies you if you ought to check your blood sugar levels after a high measurement. Your personalized diabetes assistant can predict an expected low nightly blood sugar level and notify you about this. Hedia can send you push messages when you need to measure your blood sugar levels or if you have registered a check-up in the app.

Activity levels

Hedia is the first app to include your daily activity in the calculation of your suggested insulin dosage. Hedia takes both your daily steps and your manually fitness entered into account.


With Hedia it is quick and easy to enter your data and get a suggested insulin dosage. Hedia calculates your suggested dosage using your carbohydrate/insulin ratio and your insulin sensitivity. Hedia remembers your last dosage entered into the app and will be able to tell you how much active insulin is left in your body when you enter your current data.
