HARE’S STORY
Hare was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2007. His doctor sent him
along to a free diabetes information class, which he found answered a lot of questions he had. He feels that every person with Type 2 Diabetes should know that they are not alone and to talk with other people who have diabetes and share their experiences.

LISA’S STORY
Lisa has been a diabetic for more than 20 years. It wasn’t until she lost her vision 3 years ago that she began to take it seriously. ” I have Diabetes, it doesn’t have me.” is the way she lives each day now. Winning the battle every day can be a struggle, but winning the war on Diabetes is the reward.

Reviews

“About a year ago I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and your app is the 1st time that it has made it hit home how important it is to take this serious. So thank you very much for this. I’m one Maori that very much can relate, it has changed my attitude and I appreciate the mahi that has gone into it.”

“Great job team! A lot of very good stuff in here. Will be a very helpful resource once finished.”

“Love it, such a great tool, looking at diabetes from a personal experience is a much more ‘fun’ way to get the message across, makes me want to read it to find out what happens at the end, also the mention of support groups is great, as patients often feel very alone, awesome guys, well done”

“Well, I Loved this…maybe I need a little more of my own advice”

“This is a super way to explain it. Easy to understand how and why it is this way.””

“Love the pictures and explanation of hyper and hypo.”
