AtlantiCare MEET ME @ 7 app helps those with diabetes manage disease

1024-mm7

For immediate release: April 20, 2015

AtlantiCare has created a free app to assist people in managing diabetes. The MEET ME @ 7 app for iPhone®, available on the App Store (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/meet-me-7/id949499918?ls=1&mt=8), is an easy-to-use self-management tool for people living with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. Developed by AtlantiCare's diabetes education team, this free app can help users:
o Save time measuring and recording blood sugar levels
o Measure and record medications, carbohydrates, activity, and other important labs
o Stay on track to meet management goals
o Share important information with your healthcare team

Color-coded "zones" help users identify areas of good control and areas for improvement. The app also prompts users to contact their health care providers for immediate attention when disease indicators are out of a healthy range.

The MEET ME @ 7 acronym reminds users to daily:

• Monitor blood sugar every day
• Eat a healthy, balanced diet and read food labels.
• Exercise and be active.
• Treat blood sugar.
• Adhere to medications, as prescribed by a practitioner.
• Evaluate health and symptoms from head to toe.
• Achieve an A1C of less than seven percent (or a goal the healthcare team and patient set)

Users have the option to digitally share a comprehensive diabetes log, including blood sugar value, activity, and carbohydrate intake with their healthcare providers.

The app provides educational information to help users understand how diabetes affects the body; be aware of signs and symptoms of high and low blood sugar; and understand the care schedule for diabetes.
