wanted to let you know that we have been working with the IDS team for a few weeks now and you are AMAZING!! Aside from covering all of the "nuts and bolts", you have been compassionately addressing the emotional roller-coaster I've been on, and giving me both confidence and reassurance that we will get to a better place.
We didn't get to send you a proper thanks! We just wanted to thank you SO MUCH for all of your diligent help, your patience with us, and your many super helpful recommendations. We are in such a better place than we were one year ago, and we owe SO MUCH to you!
I just wanted to say thank you. We just had our first appointment today (over phone) with Holly's new doctor. He was so impressed with Holly's blood sugar management that he wanted to know 'our secret.' I told him about Integrated Diabetes, Gary's book and The Juice box Podcast so hopefully he will learn something from you all too.
I thought I would share how my endo visit went this morning. My doc was amazed at my progress and the ownership I've taken over the last few months! It was cool to see her react so positively to all the changes I've made (on my own and with your help). Just wanted to say thank you for doing what you do and for the help that you give people who live with such a challenging disease. I know that I would not be as healthy and as confident with my management had I not found Integrated Diabetes Services. Count me as a reference for how awesome it is to work with you guys!
My daughter is part of a study at our local diabetes treatment center. I just had a call with their clinician, and I have to tell you that I ran circles around her! I felt like I was teaching her! It’s all thanks to YOU. I wish everyone could get help the way we have from Integrated Diabetes! Just wanted to send you a digital hug ?
After just two meetings, I now feel like I can take the wheel and drive the diabetes bus!
I was referred to IDS by my now retired RD, CDE. I was hesitant because of the cost involved & she assured me the benefit was well worth the cost. I made an appointment with Annette & I'm so THANKFUL that I did. I started OmniLoop about 2 months prior & was really struggling - not only with Loop but the emotional/mental toll of T1 as well. The relief I felt after the very first conversation was indescribable. I felt like a huge weight had been lifted & could see the light at the end of the tunnel. To talk to another T1 who "gets it" has been wonderful. She understands what I'm talking about & the daily challenges with T1. It hasn't been easy the last couple of months but she has been there every step of the way answering (numerous) emails & making recommendations. Since our initial contact, I have been scheduled for surgery & Annette has been working diligently to get my settings adjusted so I can continue to Loop during surgery & post-op. I am so thankful I took the leap & called IDS!! The support & understanding has been great. I highly recommend IDS (and Annette) if you are struggling & need help.
I first met Gary in May 2018 and what I learnt from him was life changing. Up until that point, I was having many issues with my diabetes. He gave me the knowledge to learn how to deal with these issues, educating me about Afreeza and the Loop.
His private practice, Integrated Diabetes, provides constant support. Gary, along with his colleague Jenny, have enabled me to incorporate technological advances into my daily lifestyle, enhancing my quality of life.
There is no doubt that Gary’s and Jenny’s counsel has enabled me to manage my diabetes more successfully. Gary continues to inspire – notwithstanding that he’s authored books, published articles, is a regular speaker and trainer, this year he’s also planning an epic fund raising event cycling 90 miles through the desert in Death Valley, California for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). A true inspiration!
I feel very optimistic about the future – Gary and Jenny have played a major part in that and I will be forever grateful.
I have worked with Jenny twice now for both of my pregnancies. She is the reason I have had two healthy babies. She made the daunting process of being pregnant with diabetes so much more manageable. Our weekly check-ins via email and monthly calls are the reason I kept an A1c of 5.0 (Whaat? Yes. You read right. I know. She showed me it is achievable.) throughout my pregnancy. I would have never been able to obtain an A1c like that or keep up with visits to the local CDE at my Endo’s office with my work schedule. I had to ask a quick pump question during my labor and delivery and Jenny answered right away. Words really can’t express how grateful I am for her. Thank you Jenny & Integrated Diabetes Services for helping me bring two healthy beautiful baby boys into this world. You are so appreciated.
Had a phone appointment with Jennifer Smith. I wanted help managing my daughtér's diabetes, and I wanted to get some advice on how to help her as she gets older. The appointment was SO worth it. So much insight on how to manage diabetes and sports - so much more valuable than any doc appointment we have ever had. I look forward to talking with her again - I know there is still so much I could learn. We have already seen real results with our daughter - such good practical advice. I would highly highly recommend!!!
