“I could see my blood sugar starting to level off in a good way. My A1c has gone down, I've lost a few pounds and I feel wonderful!”

After many blood sugar readings that were alternately too high and too low, Denise got a call from her doctor, who suggested she see a nutritionist to help her better control her diabetes.
The nutritionist gave her practical tips for developing new diet and exercise habits, then told her, “There’s a new app out, called the Brook app, and I want you to use it.”
Denise downloaded the app and started logging her blood sugar, physical activity, and food right away. Brook’s Experts made personalized recommendations for her based on her health data, including increasing veggies, planning healthy breakfasts, and fitting in short bursts of exercise throughout the day. They helped Denise set a goal to add veggies to two meals a day and exercise most days, and she worked hard to reach those goals.
“The Brook app keeps me on track by asking, 'Hey Denise, have you exercised yet today?”
“I could see my blood sugars starting to level off in a good way. My A1c has gone down, I’ve lost a few pounds and I feel wonderful, and I do attribute it to the app. I’m really loving life!” she said.
“The Brook app keeps me on track by asking, ‘Hey, Denise, have you exercised yet?’” she said.
“With Brook, I can log in every day and record my blood sugar readings, exercise, and my foods. I like being in control of these metrics and knowing I can look at them for a day, a week, or even the month. Brook empowers me to take better care of my health,” she said.
