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 Valetta Anderson, 75, from the USA!
“My dietitian said, I’m a grazer. I’m a grazer challenged by sky-high A1Cs and fall-down lows, that convinced me to try a CGM. But when I retired my ancient desktop workstation to work with a laptop in my lap, my now-retired CGM did not work in my Bluetooth-infused surroundings. I’ve used Diabetes:M for years but never before with the frequency I became used to with the CGM. Fortunately, I have no problem with nine to ten blood tests per day. And for the last year, I’ve been faithful to every other day, fifty-plus minute, aerobic and strength training regimen, testing before and after every session.
For the first time since my 1991 diagnosis, my last A1C was below 10, 9, 8, and 7. It was 6.6! That is motivation! Diabetes:M and I are celebrating The Season together as I continue recording every morsel that crosses my grazing teeth and it computes the meal insulin, grazing insulin, bolus insulin, and how many carbs I need to keep the ambulance away. How do I love Diabetes:M? Now that I really use it, let me count the ways to a post-holiday, below 6.6 A1C!”
Valetta’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!
Type 1 diabetes, commonly known as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), is a type of diabetes that affects sugar metabolism. It is caused by the development of autoantibodies such as islet cell antibodies and insulin antibodies against beta-cell antigens by macrophages and T-lymphocytes. It usually starts in children and young people. As a result, it is also called as juvenile diabetes. Furthermore, the incidence of type 1 diabetes has increased in the last decade, affecting the young generation’s quality of life.
this blog really inspiring for every diabetes patient.
