As a parent of a 2yr old T1d, this app is a must! I've watched the tutorial in case she ever has a severe hypo. I don't want to miss a single step while trying not to panic. Every T1d and their caregiver or friends should have this app. It could help save their life one day. Best to be prepared than hesitant not knowing how to mix the vial or give the proper dosage.
Thank you for this app! Love almost everything about it. This app could definitely be a lifesaver, IF you already know WHERE the glucagon kit is located. But if the user can’t even figure that part out, then what? (Not including primary caregivers, they are most likely to get the kit quickly & administer the shot correctly.)
I *love* the fact that you can add the kits locations, but why not make it easier for the user to locate that info? A friend, co-worker, relative... who has little to no experience administering the glucagon shot will be flustered, either trying to remember where their diabetic friend said they kept it, or fumbling through the app, trying to find the feature that will tell them where to find the dang shot! All the while, our poor diabetic friend is about to (or already has) pass out! Oh yes, plus they have to take time to mix it.
Just a little change to an already helpful app... but it could make the world of difference! Please, make the format a little more user friendly, & a bit easier to navigate in a real-life emergency situation. Larger font, easy to navigate interface, with a large labeled button that clearly states: “shot location”.
Let’s make it easy for glucagon kit users... they are after all, trying to save someone’s life.
I’ve been diabetic all my life, from my childhood. I use a insulin pump, the Medtronic 670g. Today my family had to struggle with me due to a 29BG, they called 911, however it is very difficult to get to my home where we live. I have this app in my phone and I have trained my 10 and 11 year old daughters to use it. Today I can honestly say that I would not have survived without Glucagon and this app that’s loaded into my phone. They both followed the simple instructions and working together they brought me back!!! Even the paramedics were amazed when they arrived here... Thank God for Glucagon, thank God for such a easy to use app... I am so thankful for the app and the easy to use instructions...
