Both my parents have Type II diabetes and my paternal grandfather also had Type II diabetes. I was diagnosed in my mid 40s and I only watched my diet and checked my blood sugar. Insulin became part of my life after I lost half my pancreas due to pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer in 2019.
I had to check my blood sugar more frequently and was tired of the painful sticks that left my fingers sore and bruised. I decided to try Pip after I saw an ad on Facebook and have used them ever since.
The needles are quick, safe, and easy to use anywhere, and with very little to no pain! Comfort and accuracy is necessity and for me and Pip is a part of my daily routine.
I was introduced to Pip by a coworker who gave me a few to try. I was instantly hooked. These are so much easier to manage than having to replace the lancet each time you need to check you levels.
I am able to quickly and easily check my levels without having to pull apart the lancet device and insert a lancet. These are simple, clean and poke.
I was diagnosed at 7 years old with type 1 diabetes, I'm now 28.
I went on vacation two weeks ago . After shopping, and walking I started to get cold sweats, attitude, and emotional. My boyfriend ran to the car and got my extra glucose meter he keeps in his car, glucose tabs and juice. he realized my looks and signs and knew my sugar dropped and he was right! So glad I took the time to show him and he did his own research to take care of me.
This is the first time in 28 years of being a diabetic , that I dont hate checking my sugar! It's safer and painless!
I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2016 after months of not realizing I was slipping into extreme DKA. I had a very difficult first year adjusting due to changes with my eyesight, no insurance and taking shots. Over time, I have learned how to best treat my disease and ways to make life less cumbersome… which includes using Pip lancets!
The Pip lancets are painless and I cannot express how much stress that relieves considering I have to finger prick at least 6 times a day. I am grateful to Pip for making my life easier!
I have learned that I am more than just my diagnosis.
When my son first got diagnosed it felt so overwhelming. It's been a crazy experience but the type 1 community is so helpful and welcoming.
We moved shortly after my son got diagnosed and couldn't manage to find a reasonable price on meds (including pen needles) I found Pip when I was scrolling through Facebook and decided to try it!
We've loved how quick everything arrives and how we can customize it to what we need! You never know what kind of day you're doing to have but you roll with the punches and pinches.
I was diagnosed when pregnant with my last child 23 years ago. I didn’t want to accept so I kept eating unhealthy food and not exercising. I did that for at least 5 years. I knew that I needed to check my blood sugar but those needles hurt so I was non-compliant.
Fast forward about a year ago when I saw your ad on Facebook. I figured why not give it a try, so I did.
It’s virtually painless and I have been checking my blood sugar regularly since.
I had gestational diabetes when I was pregnant with my son and then about 2 years later at age 36 I developed type 2 diabetes. At first it was difficult to try and figure out what my body could tolerate food wise, but keeping track of my blood sugar with a food diary really helped me.
Pip makes me look forward to checking my blood sugar. With other lancets, I really dreaded checking it because no matter where on my finger I pricked myself it hurt badly. With my pips, there's no pain.
I learned consistency is key. Once I figure out what works for me, I keep doing it.
I was diagnosed just over a year ago at 44 and have made great strides with diet and medication. My exercise regimen has been slow because I work a job where I'm on my feet 8 hours a day.
I monitor my BS with Pip Lancets because the regular lancets that come with my monitor looked like scary gauges that ripped at the flesh and I always bled quite a bit. My fingers had sores.
Pip Lancets don't do that and they're easy to use.
