The New Planet D
An app that helps young type 1 diabetics to adapt to their new diabetic life.

Made by Hayoung Shin



In 2001, Grace was a carefree nine-year-old girl. One day she felt an endless thirst and eventually passed out, only to wake up in a hospital bed. After that, she became the 'weird girl' in the room who couldn't eat a piece of cake at her best friend's birthday party. Grace had been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.

The New Planet D is an app that helps young type 1 diabetics like Grace adapt to their new diabetic life and help them find individual glucose patterns. Unlike other products, it utilizes gamification to reduce the stress of adjusting to their new condition.
