Comments

The Following are just a few of the many comments we have gotten praising Bg Tracker 4. These and all the others together assure me that my hard work does not go unnoticed and is helping my fellow diabetics.


First of all, Thank you for your selfless donation of this software to the Diabetic community and the obvious hard work you have done to get to this point. I have been building my charts in Excel but pretty much have given up on that approach after using your program. The ease by which I can now track my diabetic condition using Bg Tracker is outstanding—Many kudos to you! You beat all of the Glucose testing device companies in quality of data analysis, ease of use and obviously cost!


I just wanted to drop you a line and say thank you for a very well written program that is a lot better than most commercial software that is on the market today.


My wife has had level II diabetes for about 6 years and I have looked at many programs to track her reading. I must have tried 7 programs that claimed to be the best but I always found something missing. I printed out her reading and she showed it to her doctor as her last appointment. Her doctor told her that it was one of the best ones that she had seen and asked her where we had got it and how much it cost. When Mary told her that it was free and that I found it on the internet, the doctor just could not believe that a great program like this was out there. Thank you for your program, it is the easiest one to set up and to use. Will be watching for the new version and have already told many of our friends that need a great program like this.


First of all, I wish to say thank you! The program you have designed is absolutely wonderful. I was diagnosed type II in October 2001, and since then have managed to maintain my diabetics reasonably well but before discovering your program have had problems maintaining clear and concise records. Your program has certainly changed that, the fact I can look at a glance of my daily records is amazing, my doctor loves the program and I have recommended it to other diabetics here.


I am writing just to say thank you. I am a mother of 2 young children (2 and 4), my 2 yr. old was dx’d when he was 13 mo. old. It has been really hard for me to understand all this stuff I’ve had to learn without getting confused. But when I came across your program and read your story, I really was truly speechless that not only did you create something so wonderful as this program, but you have been in the same position as most of us today that have had to deal with diabetes in one way or another. This program is awesome , Being able to see what is going on in his little body as we go along is really a blessing! He doesn’t talk yet so he can’t tell me when he feels bad, or anything, so now I can watch closer for those trends and fax them in to doctor! I just wanted to say thank you and our prayers are with you and your family… you have answered one of our already. Thank you !!


My mother is 79 years old. Until lately she was able to manage the diabetes on her own. Due to other problems it got away from her. With this program and the reports I was able to fax her doctor she is under control again. THANKS !!!


I just wanted to thank you for the effort of putting this together and publishing it on the web. My son was just diagnosed with diabetes on May 26th, he is 6 years old and totally understands his disease and has not fussed or complained once, God definitely blessed me there. I have studied and learned a lot about diabetes and I am comfortable with it for the most. Your program has made it so much easier to keep a clear log of everything and it looks very professional to send to the doctors. I really appreciate you allowing everyone else to use your program. Thank you and definitely GOD BLESS!


Your program is wonderful. The only thing that surpasses it is your total commitment to help others without trying to make a big profit. You are truly a blessing to all of us! Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!


Thank you so much for all the time and energy you have put into this project. Like others, I too am sending prayers your way for your continued health.


This program is a REAL BLESSING to me. It is the best I have seen so far, after searching the net for many many weeks.  May God Bless you and your family


   I have been using your program for nearly a month now & have to say that I am extremely happy with it.  My physician was truly impressed with the reports & graphs.  Thank you for you first-rate program & keep up the excellent work.


I have to say that this program is absolutely wonderful and its exactly what my wife has needed.  I have searched high and low for one that has the level of power without complication so she can use it.  That was the main concern because she has to be able to use the program.  Needless to say, she was very impressed.  We had no idea her diabetes was so out of control until we plugged the figures into the program.  The Dr. and her diabetic educator recently changed her medication.  Since that point, her readings were never below 200.  In fact, one was 418 which scared both of us.  You are truly a great person for developing this and if I can be of help to you with coding or debugging the software, please don’t hesitate to ask.  Again, thank you.  I just said a quick prayer for you and hope this email finds you feeling well.


THANK YOU!!! My husband was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes’s in December 2001, ( insulin dependent) After talking to other people I decided to take him to an internalist. They took him off the insulin and put him on Actos 30mg and also glucatrol 5mg twice daily. As of Feb. they have taken him off Actos and cut his glucatrol to 2.5mg twice daily. They say we will do another Ac1? in march and if it looks good they will take him off all medication. I am convinced this is all because of your program!! I fax his numbers to his M.D. and to the internalist weekly. The internalist is so impressed with your program she wants to know if she can recommend to other patients?  Thank you again


I just thought I would write and tell you how brilliant I think your program is, I found it as a result of a diabetes forum that I’m a member of where one of the other members recommended it for the group. The program is brilliant and I can only imagine how much of your time you have put into this, giving it away free as well is a really generous thing to do which is not really seen much with good programs like this one. The inclusion of a form for pumpers is brilliant and will be useful if I manage to persuade my doctor that it is a good idea as pumps aren’t that popular here in     England       .


Thank you. Everything is ok now. I just want to say that this is the best program for diabetics I have ever tried. Believe me I tried many but this one is the thing I have been looking for. It has everything I need. I know my doctor is going to be very happy when I bring him a report from BG Tracker with all the info he needs. Thank you for this great program!


This is the first time I have written someone about a product.  But I do want to thank you for the gift you have made available to me.  I have Type 2 and have never tracked or kept records concerning my diabetes.  I have a problem with eating the wrong foods.  Thus, making my sugar level remain at a too high status.  Tonight it is 291 and averages around 200.  I am going to use your tracking system to see if I can make myself get on the right track.   Once again-Thank you!


This program has been a God-send. Thank you for your service and help to all diabetics. God bless


There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think of you  .  .  . I test my Bg from 4 to 7 times daily and I exercise on a daily basis, also. And every time I add an entry to my BG tracker, you are on my mind.  This is one of the neatest things on the computer.  And once a month, I type a letter to my doc and send him in my readings.  He thinks BG tracker is amazing.  He just loves the graphs and averages. and thank you so much for a such a neat way to keep track of my diabetes!!!


Thank you, thank you, thank you Jim. As I have shared with you before, this is the greatest program and I just love it, as does my doc.  And since I started taking insulin (January, 2000), it is even more useful. Thanks for a wonderful program.


Just a note to tell you how incredibly wonderful I think you are for all the work, concern and thoughtfulness you put into your program for the benefit of diabetics everywhere, whom you do not even know.  Am new user and many more kinks are in me than are in your software.  With deep appreciation and prayers for you,


I wish I could put into words about how grateful I am to you for the hard work and dedication you have put into your program. It allows me to see exactly in front of me how my diabetic regimen is working and even allows me to follow blood pressure problems which for me is another big problem. I hope you really enjoyed your vacation to see your grand kids. You are in my evening prayers, Take care and GOD Bless”


I am a diabetic specialist at Pakistan I visited your web site and used your software “Bg Tracker” well sir I really admire and respect your wonderful piece of work, not only useful for diabetics but for doctors as well praying for you.


I have been using your program for a while now having just moved from pills to Insulin.  I realize that I have not thanked you so, many , many thanks for what is such an easy program to use.  I can only begin to guess at the hundreds (if not thousands) of hours that went into your achievements and it is a great product.  Keep up the good work.”


I am a newbie to this diabetic thing, (type 11, diagnosed 10 mo’s ago) but have been using your software since version 3 which I found reference to @ Rick Mendosa’s site. Found it easy to use, very intuitive and then when you announced Version 4.0 and then 4.2 you surpassed yourself!! I use an ACCU-CHEK Advantage meter and have decided that your software is far preferable to use than the software they have available for this meter! Both of my doctors love the reports I can print out with 4.2 and they do help me in my daily management of this disease! (from an HBA1c of 12.8 ten mo’s ago, my last check up and lab work showed an HBA1c of 5.4!) I don’t think many folks realize just how much work you have done with this, and though I’m not a ‘puter “geek” It’s absolutely phenomenal to me!! I have been recommending it to all other diabetics I know or meet!
Again thank you for all you’ve done and God bless.


I just wanted to tell you THANKS for the time and effort it must have taken you to write this program. It has allowed me to see trends that I never have seen before during all my years as a diabetic. That, in turn, has allowed me to lower my BS’s, and feel better. Thank you.


I recently stumbled across your web site and have been using the Bg Tracker for three weeks now. Being on an insulin pump and needing to take 200 units a day due to severe insulin resistance, keeping track of 10 or more readings a day was hard. being 30 years old and chasing around a very high spirited daughter didn’t make it any easier. The BG Tracker is the best thing that I have ever seen. I am going to share it with my co-diabetics ASAP. Thank you so much for caring enough to create this program. You are a god send. Please give my sincerest thanks to everyone who made this possible. I wish I could return the favor someday.

Thanks!! This program is just what I need to get my glucose levels back to normal. I was diagnosed two years ago with type 2 and am now switching to Insulin. I am not as organized as I should be so your program will be a great help!! You may even add a few years to my life…Thanks again!!


Got your program a couple of days ago and love it. For the first time I have a big picture that I can understand and look forward to giving the report to my Dr. I am sure he will be impressed as well. Once again, a super program. Thank you for providing it to us.


I wish to thank you for the fantastic tracking program. I have been using it for a year with great help in regulating my sugar by taking different amounts of med. and at different times. I have just changed doctors and presented him with the reports generated by BG Tracker. He was shocked by the reports and said he was going to write you. He said it was the best tool he has ever seen.   I use pills and not insulin. He has changed my Meds for Blood Pressure and Diabetes already. With your help, I may be able to avoid taking shots.  Your unselfishness is a new lease on life for diabetics like myself and the more unfortunate whom are much worse off. THANK YOU VERY MUCH


Just wanted to drop you a line an tell you how much we appreciate the Bg tracker software you created, as you know from previous e-mails our 8 year old daughter has type 1 diabetes an has been on insulin injection’s since she was 4 years of age. her Bg readings are almost never the same it bounces up an down, an is really hard to get a grip on it an keep it in range for most part….her doctors tell us it will level out some what as she gets older, we have looked an changed doctor’s several times since it all began, but most doctor’s here want see children under 10 years of age, your software has really been a big help in adjusting her insulin dose, because it lets us see from previous days how her Bg readings were an how she ran that day, on the amount of insulin that was given, before we got the Bg tracker we was calling doctor every other day for adjustments, an her doctor is not from our town an is long distance to call with no 1-800 number an they put you on hold forever……an it gets really expensive after awhile.   we have noticed that everyone as far as medical supplies, doctors, producer’s of diabetic foods, an almost anything pertaining to diabetes are all cashing in on someone’s misfortune   an we think it is so sad that people take advantage of the situation some people are in, an it scares me to think of the money that is made off this terrible diabetes, makes you wonder if they really want to find a cure or not……an God bless those of you whom have been able to contribute to the care of people in need without asking for anything in return, wouldn’t it be a better world if everyone was like that……


I’ve been using your BG tracker for over a month now and it has been great. As a very uncontrolled diabetic [my fault], I decided to get off the pump and onto Lantus combo with the shots. I was having too many pump site infections and I was only getting worse, instead of better with the pump.
I looked at other sites that had tracking, but yours looked like something I could customize to my weird life. I have only just begun to see what potential I have to track not just my diabetes, but my other diseases that affect my diabetes. My MD office is also impressed with the printout and could easily see how things were going.
I guess what I want to say is Thanks. You have given me a tool that may help me prevent further complications. Even the Smiley face, which I must say I thought was rather stupid in the beginning, has an effect on me. What can I say, I was a teen in the 70’s and the smiley was all over everything then!   Thanks again


I think this is a wonderful program. My patient brought this to my attention. I will suggest this to many others.
