Meet our Eversense Ambassadors! Each person has a unique diabetes story to tell and how they came to find and benefit from the Eversense CGM System. Below are just a few and we are growing this extraordinary group of Eversense Users.
Our Eversense Ambassadors
What made Eversense so different for her is its ease of use. “It’s so easy to be able to charge the receiver for ten minutes at night, and you put your adhesive on and that’s it. There’s no insertion and it doesn’t hurt.”
Since Chris constantly travels, he admits on occasion he has deprioritized his own diabetes management. “Eversense really helped me get back on track.” Chris especially enjoys the fact that you can easily remove and reapply the transmitter. The phone app is another plus. “I just love the convenience of it.”
Darrell was one of the first to try Eversense. “I wanted in. I was inserted the first day they did implants.” The CGM dovetails directly into Darrell’s advocacy work. “I want to show people that they can manage this disease in the way they want to because you can personalize this product like no other I’ve worn."
“I thought, ‘Wow, this is going to be a game changer,” so I wanted to be a part of it.” Right from the start, things went smoothly. Although the insertion procedure normally takes about 15 minutes, Bobby was done in just over two minutes. “It’s inspiring to be a part of something that is new,” he says. “So far, it’s been the most accurate CGM, and studies back that up.”
“The thing that I like most about Eversense is that the sensor stays under my skin. And that the transmitter is removable,” says Laura. “But I really only take it off to charge it, to shower, or if I’m going someplace special where I don’t want to wear it.”
"I am now wearing sensor no. 8, sensor no.7 performance was again excellent. 180 days without any problems and very high accuracy. I am still super happy! The new sensor will guide me through my upcoming marathons."
“It vibrates to give me an alert when my blood sugar is trending too high or too low. I can evaluate what I’m doing at that moment to decide if I should go ahead and stop. Or if I’m okay, I can keep going. And it’s not an alert that everyone can hear.”
“The transmitter that I wear on top of my arm can easily be pulled off, and I can stick it right back in a second and not miss a beat. That’s a huge differentiator, because now there’s finally a CGM that can keep up with my lifestyle. I don’t have to babysit it. It’s there to take care of me and give me the data I need. It’s not going to slow me down.
Claudio tried other CGMs, so the 180-day switch to Eversense is a huge benefit, plus he can take the transmitter off whenever he wants to. “With Eversense, I can check my glucose reading on my watch as I’m driving at top speeds during a competition."
“Eversense is the first and only product that I have ever used that allowed me to feel like I’m in control. I used to have a low blood sugar on an average once a day; I now have an average of maybe one a month. I’m able to treat it before it gets dangerous.”
“Before Eversense, I gave up on scuba diving, because you’d have to waste a sensor each time. Since there’s no waste, Eversense has helped me rediscover scuba diving.”
“I’ve worn every CGM made and every insulin pump. I’ve used every piece of technology in diabetes management there is with the exception of a port. And I’d have to say that since I’ve had Eversense, I think less about my diabetes.”
I thought I really had everything under control before,” he says. “I didn’t realize how much easier life could get until I got inserted with Eversense!” Since Alan is an avid traveler—he especially enjoyed visiting Greece—he loves the simplicity of Eversense. “I only have to throw a few adhesive patches and a charger in my bag. No extra space, no extra time, and no extra weight.”
" Although there is no cure, medical technology continues to advance and having the EversenseCGM become a part of my life has really changed the game for me. I know how self conscious one can be with pump wires hanging out of your shirt or having to draw and inject insulin in the middle of a crowded restaurant, but that’s life. And having this device makes me feel like a cyborg which is cool too. If you or somebody you know struggles with this disease you’ve got someone cheering you on. If you care for a child with diabetes let them know they can achieve anything. Doctors told me a career in pro-wrestling would be impossible. I’m an NXT tag team champion now. This is a mental grind as much as it is a physical grind and take each day with a new perspective and chance to be better than you were yesterday."
