  1. Hello!

    I👏love👏your👏 channel! Would you be interested in reviewing our Freedom Band for the Dexcom & other CGMs/Pumps? We are growing our catalog of supported devices and currently offer the G6 & Freestyle Libre with several others by the Holidays.

    We are about to release the Omni Pod and Guardian link. We have created this band from 1000s of diabetic CGM & pump users input and think it aligns with your channel. If you have time or seeking content or topics, check out our site @ http://www.bandsfordiabetics.com and let me know if you are interested and will send you a Starter Kit free. We are starting to get a lot of momentum and the community in our Facebook groups has really helped us become popular. We want to help diabetics as we too are T1D. Especially with the challenges and expense that come with those bandages out there. Our band will actually help revitalize any adhesive, even those overlay patches by using your body heat to reactivate the adhesive.

    Anyhow, thanks for reading and hope to hear back. I'm not asking for a review video or to take advantage I'm any way, but rather I have found YouTubers like yourself have read, seen and tried a lot of things and would love professional constructive criticism to improve, always.

    Thank you,

  2. It’s so obvious that most patient suffering from all this deadly virus are been enslaved to the antiviral and other supplementary Orthodox medicine which only helps to suppress the virus and not a cure.
    I have been with herpes virus since 2012 until I was introduce by a blogger who also narrated her story online on how she was cured of Diabetes virus after using DR ihbaze herbal Medicine. This is a year and 2 weeks since I was delivered from diabetes with no signs at all . All thanks to God for using this Great herbalist to heal me.

  10. Are you taking vitamin D? Significant research is suggesting low levels of vitamin D correlate strongly to more severe cases of COVID-19 and even death. For more information on exactly how vitamin D modifies the immune system and protects against COVID-19 symptoms I suggest the following video.Are you taking vitamin D?

  11. SEE A COMMENT BY THIS VIDEO… https://www.youtube.com/watch/v=aCGx8EYyNjQ


    <<>> hm… Sits fearful God in Brazil somewhere and thinks – "I am small by this Christianity..?" Unfortunately – Christianity periodically is in this trouble – in the wish to see You like such somebody Else by The God. Then, when due the various past's thinking – She is starting to negate "Anything in The Kind of Somebody Else…" The Any Other World, the every authors or people, who are in the hope to get the miracles… O.K. When few moths ago I do shared similar prompts (like it is in the comment by my placed video) – Every Youtubers in theme "I have Covid 19" were Chinese (the perfect free minded Hong Kong's guys basically)… Nah – and few pairs of the tourists from U.K., who became into the prisiners in cruise ships by China… Today – this "population with Covid 19" is the very large… Sometimes – they are "the too much Brazilians.." (hysterical Christians with their "I am small..?!)… Nah… but – I will try today (2020-07-15) to develop this miracle with Your help again with this sharing to each such Youtuber (in this case I'll try to achieve the Americans selectively…) <<>> BY THIS – HERE… Is Covid 19 such viruse (such viruses ae known for the canalizations cleaners) who can to use a Soap..? Is Covid 19 such viruse, which expansion (wish to achieve "the another place") grows, if grows the light..? Is Covid 19 such viruse, which aggression grows, if an air is the very dry..? <<>> Unfortunately in spectacles of WHO we can to see the mushrooms only, who disagree, that do not exist the questions without answers… ALTHOUGH AN EACH CASE, IN AN ANSVER TO THOSE 3 MY QUESTIONS is Yes – shows, that medicine in healing Covid 19 sometimes is a working for the troubles developing only (the dry lugs ventilating, the big lights using in hospitals for the patients watching, the ANY hands hygiene's offers and so one).

  12. As a wellness nurse I am watching as many personal accounts as I can just to get a feel for the symptom profile and risks.

  13. Stay safe, jeep smiling and be relaxed. The natural light showed off your beautiful hair colour brilliantly

  14. i stay home as much as I can Covid seems to make people over 20 sick more so best of luck stay safe.

  15. Yeah but try getting DIAGNOSED during the quarentine and going into DKA🙄

  16. My dad is a type one diabetic. He's able to work from home and uses insta cart and is able to have his insulin and syringes delivered to our house. We say that he's in the special 5 percent of people who this can affect

  17. Hi Danica, I'm from overseas, and of course I'm far from the US, but thankfully I speak English, so I got lucky to find your video. It made me feel a lot more comfortable with Diabetes and this horrible virus. I was really afraid that if I would get infected It would be the end. Thanks to your advise, I will for sure control my sugar levels (sorry if I say or write something wrong), and exersice to be as healthy as I can. Although it would be very helpful if you can tell us about people who is a diabetic, and also has high blood pressure, and if you know about some cases and how to improve the chances of surviving from Covid-19. Thanks you so much for caring. Best wishes form Guatemala, the full year Spring country.

  18. im 26… my wife works at a hospitale, she has worked with covid patients…. i dunno if i should be scared or whaty to do 🙁

  19. Hi I live in Australia we eventually followed NZ into doing a lock down. Everyone by that time was self isolating anyways if you could in any way possible. I really missed the gym work outs to help control my sugar levels. Just tried grazzing and cutting down on carbs as much as possible. Sneaked out for five km walks some times so many times a day. However gettting higher as time goes on.

  20. I'm a nurse in a nursing home and type one also and I decided to stop work, mainly because my bms are not great as I struggle, and of course in a nursing home you can't follow the social distancing rules or work from home. I found the advice from our government disappointing towards diabetes, being more likely to get it shouldn't matter, it's highly contagious anyway so really diabetics cannot afford to get it because of the risk with DKA. Evidence so far has shown poorer outcomes. Not to scare people however, just my true feelings. I'm lucky I have been able to stay off work but I plan to return in a month or two when the infection rate is hopefully much lower…hope everyone does everything they can to protect themselves and families. I also have a four year old daughter off school, and my parents need to shield so no longer can look after her. So that is another reason I am off work, but ultimately I feel I'm doing what's best by me and my family. I don't want to be a hero right now, I want to be a mother to my daughter and protect us both from out there.
