Live interview with Simon Carter, PredictBGL

Simon is the Founder of PredictBGL, a powerful mobile platform for safer diabetes. PredictBGL was born from his own experience as a long-term Type 1 (1988), and as the parent of a Type 1 child (September 2007). He was led to create PredictBGL by his need to predict his daughter’s blood sugars overnight, his desire to monitor his daughter’s blood sugars while at school, and his (frugal Scottish ancestry coming to the fore) aim to have dose calculation and insulin on board tracking – without a pump. The integrated prediction concept was recognised at Stanford’s DiabetesMine conference, and it was recently accepted into the 500 Startups pre-accelerator in San Francisco.

An outspoken diabetes thought leader and serial entrepreneur, Simon previously founded DataMystic, a data mining and data conversion software company. Simon is also CEO of DownloadPipe, a Tier 1 software download site.

Simon has an double degree with Honors in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Monash University.

PredictBGL is the only consumer diabetes management platform available where users can simply and easily log glucose, food, exercise and factors, calculate insulin (if required), and instantly see the effect on their future blood sugars. PredictBGL uses predictive analytics and visualization to deliver actionable data driven insights for dose changes, hypo predictions, delayed eating suggestions, meal sizes, food Glycaemic Indexes and more. It is the only app to predict blood sugars, the only app to include fat and protein in dose calculation, and the only app to share more than just blood sugars.

It is designed for people with Type 1, Type 2, Type 1.5, LADA, Gestational and Pre-diabetes, and diabetes caregivers. The web portal gives access to Health Care Professionals.

PredictBGL is available for free download in the App Store shortly, in Google Play.
