Here's what people are saying...

  •   I like the way it tells me to check my blood and gives me hints to live a healthier life, to take my meds.    

  •   I like it when Paula texts me first thing in the morning. She's always curious as to what's going on with me and my blood sugar. I like that she gives me reminders and tips.  

  •   I liked that the messages are continuous.. I liked the reminder aspect.  

  •   Tips and education in the morning were super helpful. When I test before I eat, I'm more careful about what I eat.
