Hi, My name is Justin Graham.

I was diagnosed with middle-aged type 1 diabetes at the age of 30, bought on by stress and a low immune system. I have been living with Type 1 Diabetes for over 20 years.

Recently 2019, my daughter, nine years old, was diagnosed with type 1 Diabetes. 

Having attended parental diabetes clinics to get a better understanding of how to manage Diabetes for children, I immediately recognised the industries lacking in connectivity with modern technology – not only to help parents but also help children manage carbohydrate calculation and insulin dosages.

As a parent managing insulin injections for a child, the amount of information was daunting, and the learning curve was overwhelming.

• Blood Glucose High Warnings

• Blood Glucose Low warnings

• Sick day Ketones

• Accounting for the effects of exercise on glucose levels.

• Reading and understanding food labels

• Weighing food, calculating carbohydrates and carb portions (15g of carbohydrates equals one carb portion)

• Finger pricks to calculate blood glucose level.

• Referring to a printed chart to look up the current glucose level vs how many carb portions to calculate the amount of insulin required. In the age of mobile technology, how archaic is this?


I'm sure these questions have been asked many times before;

– Why doesn't the glucose finger prick monitor send the Blood Glucose value to a mobile application?


– Constant Glucose Monitors (CGM) send data to a Glucose Reader or Mobile app - why is this not automatically used in the Bolus Calculation?


– Why can't you bolus your Insulin Pump from a connected mobile application?


– Why is the CGM separate from the pump. Can't they combine in one item?


So I asked myself – Well, why not?

While attending the diabetes clinic at the Mater Children's Hospital (Brisbane), not in an official capacity, I consulted with diabetes educators. I produced an electronic insulin calculator in line with the dosing charts supplied by the hospital.

I started mobile application development with big plans to make a difference.

I have been working hard, self-funding the project. However, given the task at hand is so large and has exponential benefits to everyone.

I am now asking for community support and engagement to take the project to the next level.

Our goal is to provide the Diarybetes App FREE to everyone with Diabetes.

If you would like to get involved in a professional capacity, visit our website https://diarybetes.com and get in touch.

OR make a donation – we are hoping to raise $500K – to complete the software development and take the app through clinical trials and TGA approval.

All donations, big or small, will go a long way.

About Diarybetes

Diarybetes – is an innovative app that helps people with Diabetes calculate carbohydrates and Bolus insulin injections.

An Australian idea founded by people with Diabetes, for people with Diabetes.

Suitable for people with Diabetes on multiple daily injections (MDI) or insulin pump therapy.

With an easy to use meal diary, the total carbs automatically add to the built-in Bolus Insulin Calculator.

We are improving mobile connectivity - so that finger prick glucose monitors and Constant Glucose Monitors (CGM's) can automatically transmit your blood glucose level directly to Diarybetes insulin calculator. We are making the process much more streamlined.

Design for health care professionals, the Diarybetes software includes a connected data-sharing platform that allows for remote viewing and management of patient data. Endocrinologist, Diabetes Practitioner, Diabetes Educator, Dietitians and Doctors. Allowing Clinical Physicians can make informed decisions and adjustments to patients insulin therapy.
