Hedia Diabetes management


Transform your diabetes management

Better glycemic control

If you struggle to manage your diabetes, our app aims to minimise your blood sugar flunctuations and maximise your time-in-range. 

Fewer everyday worries

We strive to ease the burdens of diabetes by addressing everyday challenges like insulin dosing and tracking carb intake, active insulin, exercise, and time-in-range.

More control of your diabetes

With features like a logbook, carb and insulin calculator, and reminders, our app empowers you to self-manage your diabetes with ease.

How our diabetes app works

Transfer your blood glucose measurements

You can transfer your blood glucose measurements wirelessly to Hedia Diabetes Assistant (HDA) from your blood glucose meter via NFC or Bluetooth.
