Concept & developed by:
Dr. Mohammad Golam Kibria

Brief description:

Mx of Diabetes Mellitus app is designed for General Practitioners of Bangladesh. Diabetes Mellitus is now one of the most threaten non-communicable diseases globally. Bangladesh is one of the most populous regions in the world and nearly one-fifth of all adult diabetics live in this region. Diabetes mellitus is a chronic and debilitating disease and is associated with a range of complications (eg. Coronary artery disease, stroke, blindness, renal failure, lower limb amputation etc) if left untreated. Nearly 50% of the cases remain undiagnosed.

Diabetes Mellitus is a metabolic disorder due to absolute or relative lack of insulin. Hence hyperglycemia is a hallmark of the disease. The classification, treatment initiation, follow-ups all require blood glucose estimation and correct interpretation.

  • To start treatment or follow-up by treatment algorithm provided by BIRDEM
  • To select appropriate drug or insulin by detailed information
  • To calculate Daily calorie requirement for patients
  • To calculate Insulin dose
