You probably wonder why answering questions in the app is important. We have built Intellin to help you see if you have complications related to diabetes.

Intellin uses its special Risk Engine, that we are developing with the University of Nottingham to make an evaluation based on your answers - the more questions you answer, the better the predictions will be in the future!

Since everyone’s diabetes is unique, the Intellin Risk Engine takes this into consideration. The more data, the more personalised the risk profile.


If you do not have enough information to answer any of the questions, please speak with your nurse or diabetes specialist.

Questions Progress screen#

The main question screen is divided into three categories:

  • My Profile - easy questions (you should be able to answer these questions yourself)
  • My Diabetes - medium to hard (may require the assistance of your nurse)
  • Yearly Checks - hard (may require the assistance of your nurse) - get to understand why you have these checks

Each category shows your progress and how much you have left to answer.

Keep an eye on the Priorities page#

Every time you answer a question or add new blood glucose, pressure entry etc. - you will be helping make the predictions even better.

Check the Priorities page, which gives you an overview of your complications. Speak to your nurse if you need help.
