A carb counter for diabetics or anyone tracking their input of carbs, calories, fat and protein.  Look up food items you have eaten or are considering eating from a large database of food items with an easy to use search function. Shows carbs, calories,  fat and protein per 100 grams for each item. Enter grams (28 grams  = one ounce) of each item consumed and HelpDiabetes will add it to the day or meal total.

The first time you run the app it takes several minutes to start up as it’s downloading the list of food items. Subsequent start ups are fast.

  1. Can you help me with how to use HelpDiabetes – I am a complete novice with apps. Thanks

    • I don’t use that app but if you have a specific question I’ll do my best to answer it. For general help with downloading and installing apps see the Help Page.
