made by diabetics, for diabetics
Born out of a college student's need for more control in sharing her blood sugar, we are on a mission to make diabetics more prepared for low blood sugars.
Before moving to college, I used to share my blood sugar with my parents. But I stopped sharing the day I moved in (sorry mom!) because I wanted independence, and because my parents lived far away and wouldn’t be able to help during a low. I didn’t want to make my roommate or RA download an app and have access to my blood sugar all of the time, so for the first time in having a CGM, I was not sharing my blood sugar with anyone. But when my blood sugar went low and I was alone in my dorm room I was scared and wondered how long it would take anyone to realize if I had a serious medical emergency.
And so, with minimal coding experience, I started developing an app to solve this problem. In 2022, I found the right co-founder and we officially incorporated as a company. In 2023 we started beta testing, and we are looking forward to our upcoming launch in 2024!
