Diet management is a critical part of diabetes self-management. This project developed a working prototype application on Android-based mobile phone called SMART CARB that assists people with diabetes to self-manage their diet. The system particularly focused on monitoring carbohydrate intake in order to control their blood glucose levels. The project was positioned as a research extension to the development of the Few Touch mobile phone-application for diabetes self-management system that has been already in use. Food and meal are deeply embedded in local cultures. The project goal was to develop a prototype application that provides diet-self-management tools that reflect users’ behavioral patterns and nature of food in their cultures. For the comparative case studies two cultural settings; Norway and Korea; were selected in order to understand differences in requirements from different food cultures that are critical for developing cultural adaptation mechanisms for the diet self-management system. Two versions of the application; one for Norwegian users and the other for Korean users; were developed with different interfaces reflecting the different natures of these two food cultures and user feedback was obtained through interviews with people with diabetes in these countries.
