Apps to help manage your type 2 diabetes and reduce your risk

If you are living with type 2 diabetes every day or have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes, making healthy lifestyle changes can help with managing this long-term condition. Hywel Dda Health Board have selected a range of apps to help you start making healthy changes.

Hywel Dda University Health Board Digital Health Apps Library - enabling and improving access to digital applications to support our clinical teams and patients with their health and wellbeing

Working in partnership with ORCHA (Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Apps), Hywel Dda University Health Board Digital have created a Digital Health Application library where clinicians can recommend apps to patients and patients can find apps to support their health and wellbeing with reassurance that they are genuine and have been reviewed by the clinical community. ORCHA review such apps against 350+ criteria relating to Clinical/Professional Assurance, Data and Privacy, and Usability and Accessibility.

Although apps can be a great way to manage health and wellbeing, there are thousands out there so finding the right one can be confusing and knowing which ones have been created with clinical input difficult. The app store will assist clinicians and patients search and compare apps that are safe and effective.

Health applications can be a great way to manage health and wellbeing and can help support patients and service users with common health challenges.
