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 Carolina Maria Braga de Oliveira, 21, from Brazil!
“The Diabetes:M app was introduced to me by a Ph.D., diabetic and diabetes educator, during a round table about living with diabetes. I’m sure that this introduction changed how I lived with my diabetes. Before using the app, I always looked for different options to help me do all the counts that I needed: other apps, a notebook, the notes app on my phone…
The Diabetes:M app enabled me to be a more independent person, to live without concern, and to have more time to take care of myself. Using the app helped me to take more notes about how I was doing in my treatment and to use these notes to work with my doctor and find a better way to achieve health. In one year of use, I was able to finally achieve and maintain a 6.5 HbA1c for the first time in 8 years.
I’m from Brazil. The diabetes treatment here is free, but yet with no accompaniment and no encouragement to care. And the app was the tool that helped me change this reality. I’m sure that without using the app, it would need a longer time for me to achieve better results. And, also, it would be way more difficult to do what I do every day. The Diabetes:M app is helpful and resourceful for all diabetic people, and so it was for me.”
Carolina’s story certainly is inspiring and if you think that yours is too, feel free to share it with us in the comment section or on our social medial channels with the hashtag #YourDiabetesStory!
