MD, the Medical Diary or Medical journal lets you chart your glucose values, cholesterol, blood pressure, pulse rates and your weight, all as 3D charts and printouts. It also allows you to keep a journal, or diary and track your appointments.
Pros: The application has two distinct sections. One that keeps medical history of blood glucose, cholesterol, blood pressure and pulse rates, as well as weight. Historical data can be reviewed as 3D charts or a list. Print out of either is possible. It also allows you to keep a journal, or diary and track your appointments. The journal can be up to 12 pages a day.
Glucose levels can be entered 6 times a day (before/after breakfast, lunch and dinner) and displayed as 3D charts for a week, month or full year. Same for appointments, print them for a month or a full year for complete records. Blood pressure, pulse rates, cholesterol and weight can also be charted in 3D and printed. A large amount information can be stored as much as 8 TB, should anybody need it! Whether you have a chronic illness and need to keep accurate personal electronic medical records, are an active sports person, are trying to track your weight during a diet, or just health conscious, this software is quite suitable. It is easy to use, has help overlays on screen. The help information is right on top of what you are doing and is called up, as well as dismissed, with a single mouse click!
Cons: The user interface is very unusual to say the least. When this operates, no other window/application is available; this application takes over the complete screen. Thatís an after effect of creating this as an executable. Thus no normal Windows task window and thus no minimize/ maximize or close buttons. This is one big shortcoming. Navigation on some pages also is difficult. Being an appointments diary too it would be useful to operate like a normal window along with other applications.
Overall the two sections are a very diverse combination; the medical diary and the journal/appointments part. This can live up to much higher ratings but rates only 2 stars in the current avatar.
