Every day people with diabetes face challenges no one sees: just try to keep in mind everything you eat and predict how it will affect your body.
The aim is to create an app which will make lives of people with diabetes simplier. It will combine a blood glucose log, will calculate meals glycemic load and the amount of insulin needed to process the food. The app will make calculations basing on personal data, so the result will be accurate and individual for every user.
To understand the problems and users’ experience better, the survey was conveyed. 31 respondent with diabetes answered the questions.
To classify the tagrget audience and understand their motivation better 3 personas were created. Their characteristics and the main insights I got are based on the survey results.
On this stage the main goal was to make a user journey smooth, simple and minimize negative cases.
Having analyzed all the info from the research I got from the previous stages, the optimal app architecture was designed.
A good deal of time was spent on wireframes and prototypes creation as it helps to make an easy-to-use product and design the best user experience.
The general idea was to make the design of the app clean, friendly and give it a modern vibe. I used bright colors and emoji as they create amiable atmosphere.
Onboarding process takes a user through 7 simple steps and helps to personalize further experience. Each step is followed by a question and the answers determine how a person would interact with Dia later.
A user can easily add a glucose measurement, meal or a medication with a quick add button. Each feature uses its own color code, making it easy for users to differentiate them.
Everything a person has eaten during a day is calculated. Handy search allows to add new items if needed. Knowing carbs and glycemic index of a dish allows Dia to count glycemic load.
The most important issue for any person with diabetes is keeping blood glucose normal. The log helps to get control over blood glucose levels.

On a tap a person gets more in-depth overview of glucose levels. A user also can share easy a log report with their doctor easily.
Profile tab enables to reach any section of settings. There a user can change parametres chosen at registration and onboarding steps as well as manage reminders.
Dia sends reminders to its users so they can always do diabetes related routine on time.
