According to the International Diabetes Atlas (2013), approximately 225,840 people in Ireland are living with diabetes. It is estimated that by 2030 there would be 278,850 people living with the disease it is quite clear that this is a major problem. From a technical standpoint this project sets out to help those people living with the disease to manage it best they can with the aid of an android application and glucometer device.

The application has been developed in Android Studio, the application works alongside a Bluetooth glucometer device for recording users blood sugar readings. The main aim is to move away from the traditional pen to paper method that most diabetics use when recording their blood levels and to utilize all of the great advancements in technologies which have been available to us in recent years.

The user has the be ability to record their blood sugar readings as they normally would however utilizing Bluetooth the glucometer device that wirelessly transmits the data and stores it in the android application which utilises a real-time database for online backup. I believe that by combining the device that is used by all diabetics in conjunction with the application adds great value to the project and makes it differ widely from other similar applications available from the play store.

In addition to this the application the user with a reminder alarm functionality for reminders for medication or anything they desire. A pedometer which is also within application will ensure that the diabetic user will be getting enough exercise per day to ensure good blood circulation.

The main aim of this report is to fully document the process that was involved in the development of this project listing all of the necessary details including requirements, technologies, design, testing, evaluation and further developments.
