This converts glycosylated haemoglobin (Hb or hemoglobin if you are American) (HbA1c or A1C) from the old percentage (NGSP)units to the new mmol/mol (IFCC)units and vice versa. It allows entry of a value and the App will convert it accordingly.
Suitable for anyone involved in diabetes care be they doctors or nurses, community or hospital medics, medical students, dietitians, general practitioners, practice nurses, diabetes nurse specialists.
The App also has the diagnostic criteria for diabetes using HbA1c from the World Health Organisation (WHO), as well as some of the pitfalls of diagnosis as outlined by the referenced research. These three papers are the start of an intriguing argument about the merits of this diagnostic process. I think Farmer's subheading "Be aware of clinical circumstances in which results may mislead" sums it up nicely.
The diagnosis of diabetes section is accessed through the 'menu' button.
Patients need not worry themselves with this App.
Version 1.2 deals with a rounding up problem which was giving slightly non standard results, much to users chagrin, this version will only give expected results, please take time to rate it if you believe its improved from the 1 ratings.
The App also now incorporates its own key pad for a new feel and better landscape functionality.
Minor changes to improve code stability
