Reviewer: Person living with post-polio syndrome and type-2 diabetes, UK
Review: “Using Healthsome G provides daily results that help me stick to the plan I have worked out for me. No real National Health Service (NHS) support for what I am doing. When I suggested to my GP, I was told most people would not want to record like this, so it is not worth them offering anything. My type-2 diabetes, my blood pressure, my cholesterol are all controlled. I did not take medications. I researched, and, using apps, have won.”
