We love hearing your stories about how you discovered the Diabetes:M app and why you find it useful. As a company started by a fellow person with diabetes, we are thrilled to see that the app is helping hundreds of thousands of users throughout the world, which is why we decided to share some of the feedback we’ve received over time. Meet Chris, 55, from the United States!
“I am a retired high school technology teacher who still travels around the US to teach other teachers. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about 10 years ago, and after 6 months my diabetes educator re-diagnosed me as LADA, type 1. What a long strange trip it has been. I use a CGM but the data that the software comes with and gives me is limited, as is the information that I can add…
When I found Diabetes:M it was a game-changer. I can now make a few changes and can easily dial in the carb/insulin ratio which really helps me to stay in range more often with a lower A1c. I have even converted my Diabetes Educator! My last appointment was spent showing her how it worked, and she is even suggesting its use for others.
As a teacher who travels a lot, I do not have a lot of latitude between having high or low blood sugar. Diabetes:M helps keep me on my game, it is so detailed too, that I can track a lot of information that other software can’t. Logging food is easy, as is recording macronutrients and medications. The bolus calculator is a real bonus too! Once I have the ratios dialed in, I use the app to count carbs and suggest how much insulin to bolus for and it is spot on! It even allows me to adjust my insulin resistivity for different times throughout the day.
Thanks, Diabetes:M! You’ve helped put me in control of my diabetes!“
