What a great resource!

This is such a needed app! Having diabetes can be isolating because of all the (unfounded) shame and stigma - and sometimes the existing communities tend to have an air of negativity in them. I’m SUPER excited for this app because it‘a such a beacon of positivity for those of us living with this disease everyday. Thank you, Healthline!!

User friendly?

When I close an article that I have received through notifications I am unable to save it, or find the article to read at a later time. This is very frustrating.

Hi - Thanks for your feedback, we really value it. At this point in time, you can find the article by keyword through using search. We are planning updates that will allow you to save articles to read later.

Not getting anything from this app.

I’m not able to participate in any conversations through this app. I guess it’s because I have no internet or WiFi connection. I asked a question the other day but no replies. I have a dr who never calls me back and I get better response from 2 close friends who are dealing with the same issues.
