No One Likes Pricks
Diabetes complicates lives for people, costing outrageous amounts of money and sometimes the cost is loss of life. While there are breakthroughs in treatments and ever- reaching closer to a cure, there is a way to ease the burden.
The Helo Extense is a device I have purchased to learn and write about in order to help patients with diabetes and their care providers.
So far, the device is easy to use after initial struggle to get the correct ap called Sugar Trend. We have tested several patients with type 2 diabetes and results so far are accurate. At first, prior to purchasing the device, I incorrectly assumed it would be simple to lend the device to my house manager for her to observe her blood sugar trend.
The software requires a guest user to be added, and a compatible phone for getting the measurements uploaded.
Soon to air are how to use videos in English, to show how to find the Ap and use the device. The user manual is lacking information, and it was not easy to locate on the WGN website.
Please comment questions and feedback, and you can email me directly at nursebeccaconsulting.com for future updates.
I can picture a future with No More Finger Pricks for people with Diabetes. Thank you kindly! I appreciate your interest and EMAIL:
