This is a very nicely developed diabetes log book app, which actually doesn’t surprise me at all considering that Maxwell Software is the development team behind it; a team whose apps I’ve reviewed a handful of times, all with positive outcomes.

Whether you suffer from diabetes or you’re just looking for a way to stem the tide of pre-diabetic symptoms, this is a very useful iPhone app for diabetes to keep handy so I would definitely recommend checking it out if you need this sort of utility.
