DM Nutrition Memory


DM (Diabetes Mellitus) Nutrition Memory is an app for insulin dependent diabetics that saves nutrition information (meal or individual meal item) and the amount of insulin taken for each nutrition. This information can then be retrieved the next time you eat the same nutrition to help you decide the insulin dose you need to take. Additional information can also be added, for example, total carbohydrates (CHO) and resulting blood sugar (BS) if you want to have more information available to assist you with your insulin decision.

Nutrition information can be entered into DM Nutrition Memory using the device keyboard, copy/paste and speech.

This application is NOT intended to take the place of any information or guidelines your healthcare providers have instructed you to use but rather to assist you with this insulin decision process.

DM Nutrition Memory is a universal Windows app that runs on multiple Windows devices (phone, PC, laptop, tablet, etc.) and synchronizes your nutrition information on all Windows devices on which DM Nutrition Memory is installed. For your data to synchronize, an Internet connection is needed and you have to sign into each of your devices with the same Microsoft account (e.g. Outlook.com).

Search Nutrition

You can search for nutrition information by scrolling through the nutrition display box on the main page. This nutrition list can be filtered by using one or both of the Search Filters or by using Search Nutrition. When using search filters, just select a different search filter and the nutrition list will update. Search filters can be selected using the drop down lists or by selecting the command bar search filter microphone button and speaking the search filter(s) you would like to use to filter your nutrition list. Say “All” once if you want to set both of the search filters back to the “All” default search filters.

Search Nutrition searches independently of search filters and can be used by entering nutrition into the Search Nutrition box and selecting the enter key or speaking nutrition you want to find after selecting the command bar nutrition microphone button on the main page to update the nutrition list.

To edit previously saved nutrition information, select a nutrition from the nutrition display box and select the main page command bar edit button.

Search filters can be selected using the drop down lists or speaking the search filters after selecting the search filter microphone button. Nutrition can be changed using the keyboard, copy/paste and speaking after selecting the nutrition microphone button. When complete, select the save command bar button and confirm.
