What do we do?

DoseDr (YC W16) helps diabetics better manage their blood sugar and insulin, making them healthier, saving their lives, and preventing the $140 billion spent on diabetes complications each year. We do this through a web portal and mobile app that serves as a "doctor in the pocket" of each of our patients.

Why join us?

Diabetes is a humongous health problem, causing pain and suffering for a large percent of the population and for their families. Our team has immediate impact on improving the health and lives of our patients. We save the lives of our users, prevent them from trips to the ER and ICU, and improve their blood sugar safer and quicker than the current medical standard of care.

Technical challenges

1.) Our product provides complex medical treatments, yet must be simple to use for our users. 2.) Our product has immediate effects on the health and lives of our users and must be engineered and designed with safety as the most important priority.
