✔ Easy to use.

✔ Respectful place with community guidelines.

✔ Connect with users around the world and in your local area.

✔ Talking about and connecting to people who know what it's like to live with type 1 diabetes can bring about positive benefits.

✘ Large volume of content that may be overwhelming at first. But the app has tips for navigating the app, which is a good place to start.

✘ Some of the experiences shared from around the world may not be relevant to New Zealanders.

✘ Although people with diabetes are experts in their own condition, it's important people do not substitute information on the app for advice from their healthcare team.

✘ It can be easy to compare yourself to other people and their diabetes management which could cause anxiety for some people.
