Best Diabetes Management App EVER.
Never, in all the years since I've had type 1 diabetes, have I had a better time taking care of myself than with this app.
I am a first year college student, and 2,000 miles away from home, so for the first time in my life, I am COMPLETELY on my own with diabetes. My first semester, I struggled with the transition, and even stopped testing my blood sugar and taking my insulin injections.
This semester, I skeptically downloaded this app, expecting it to be awful and annoying like all the other diabetes management apps that I have tried. Boy, was I wrong!
This app is encouraging and patient, and even makes taking care of my diabetes fun! I find myself diligently testing, aiming harder for my blood sugar goals, always trying to take on the next challenge.
Using this app leaves me feeling rewarded and of course feeling so much healthier. I especially like that I can log all of my information onto a PDF and share it; this is a great tool that I know my doctor will appreciate, as they are always begging me to log my sugars. I also love that the creators of the app keep up with me, sending me encouraging and informational emails.
It feels good to be so successful in taking care of myself. I am no longer alone in my diabetes management.
This app has been a miracle for my life.
I love it, 110%.
If you have a teen in college with Type 1 diabetes, I HIGHLY recommend they get this app.
WOW and Double Wow!
I've been a diabetic almost 20 years and have been on an insulin pump for almost 10 years. I have to admit that my record-keeping had become rather lax. Some of my blood sugars are transmitted to my pump but since I use multiple meters, many values were not in my pump. I thought I was remembering to manually enter values into my pump, but when I compared values in the pump to all my meters, I wasn't even getting half of them. I knew I would not keep up with a manual log and had tried a couple of other diabetes trackers but found them cumbersome.
When my insurance company started requiring one month logs twice a year, I knew I needed to do something. Then I tried this app. I am VERY impressed. It is quite easy to use and can I say "fun." I have had a few issues since I use U-500 insulin and take up to 400 units per day. I emailed support twice, one was in the middle of the night, and received replies within a couple of hours. One request was was to remove the 50 unit limit on pump boluses since my normal meal bolus is 100 units. They said both my requests would be included in future updates.
Having only used it a short time, I can't really comment on the analysis and reporting functions yet. Even if those were not present, this app would be worth every penny just for the logging functions. Try this app! Need to add a place for entering weight.
Even my Dr. Was impressed!!!
I love the ease of this app! It is simple and easy to use yet covers everything I need in a log book. I also love that i can print out my reports and give it to my Dr. to review and compare with my pump reports. I just went to my Dr.s and she loved how I could look up every test and tell her exactly what I ate, amount of carbs, and my insulin rate! She took down the info and said she would share this with others!!!! Thanks for a great app! The only way I could imagine this being better would be if it could look up food counts! :)
