currently available:
1) Existing browsers on mobile devices.
For example: Android Browser, BlackBerry Browser,
Firefox for Mobile, Internet Explorer Mobile, Opera

2) The previous browser must be installed first.

"shortcomings" of the hormone insulin, a substance
produced by the pancreas gland. High blood sugar
can always occur because of three things:
1) Can be caused by diseased pancreas cannot
produce insulin.
2) Insulin may also be due to the experiencing
barriers to employment
3) Or the worst case where the pancreas cannot
produce insulin at all.
Target or primary purpose of treatment of diabetes
1) Maintain health by controlling blood sugar.
2) Prevent and delay the occurrence of diabetic
In the blood sugar levels are always fluctuating
depending on the amount of food consumption.

A Application Requirement

The Requirement of this application will be

explained with 4 categorized such as :

1. Diabetes Patient
The parameters that need to be analyzed by
the doctor with this application is:
- Glucose
Diabetic patients should alert with blood sugar

The doctor will have PIN that only known by
him. So if patient want to be add the doctor, they
need the PIN that doctors has gave. They input that
PIN, and doctor will confirms that request.

3. Admin
Admin have the capability to update the
application and add the doctor. So this application
will be need cooperation among patient and doctor.

4. Others
The other feature of this applications are chart,
overview, setting, profile and diabetes FAQ.

In this paper we have described a system
consultation architecture that we designed in order
make consultation more flexible. The feature of the
application has been represented with the need of
diabetes patient if they consult to a doctor in real life.
We are planning to carry out experiments using by
implementation of the application. We are test the
application and find the opinion about this
application. Last but not means last, in the future, this
application not only for diabetic patient, but with the
same architecture will be build for other disease, such
as, heart attack, stroke and the others disease.
