Our Story

Back in 2013, our founder Lydia Brian received a life-altering diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes at just 14 years old. Throughout her journey, Lydia faced significant challenges, particularly when it came to managing her carb intake during her university years. Estimating carbohydrates in meals became an arduous task, leading to inconsistent blood sugar levels and feelings of frustration. Motivated by her own experiences, Lydia embarked on a mission to develop a solution. After extensive research and development, 'Check Select Inject' was born—a groundbreaking app designed to accurately calculate carb content and empower users to make informed food choices. With Check Select Inject, managing diabetes becomes easier and more enjoyable, even when indulging in a cheeky Nando's.

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower individuals with diabetes by providing a user-friendly and comprehensive carb counting solution. We strive to simplify meal planning, enhance blood glucose management, and improve overall well-being, enabling our users to take control of their health and live fulfilling lives.
