Vienna on May 26, 2015

Diabetes sucks – that’s something the 30 members of the mySugr team agree on. Since 2010 the Viennese startup tries to make the life of diabetes patients easier. They already launched five different applications – Logbook, Importer, the Quiz app, Junior and Academy – as well as the mySugr online platform. The mySugr Logbook helps with day-to-day diabetes management. The mySugr Importer was developed together with startup Anyline and scans and imports data from blood sugar meters. Junior was especially developed for young patients and the mySugr Quiz app lets you test your knowledge about diabetes. The Academy – also available as IOS app since last week – helps type 2 diabetes patients with videos and games to cope with their disease.
