App Review: DMP App

Last week, I was honored to have a guest post from DMP – The Diabetes App. I decided that I would download it and see how it looked. Right off the bat, I think it’s a GREAT app! It’s visually appealing, full of useful information, and we can connect with other diabetics. Below is a detailed review of the app.


Visuals: 5/5

I love the colors they chose and the art that was used. It’s not harsh colors or lines, everything is kind of soft and smooth. It’s easy on the eyes.


Messaging System: 5/5

The messaging system is almost like text messaging. You can choose who your message goes to and just start typing. You have to make a connection with people in order to be able to message them.


Profile: 5/5

The profile is really great. You have your profile picture, username, # of posts, followers, and following right at the top. Your About section tells people what Type of Diabetes you have and when you were diagnosed. Then you can go into your Bio and you can fit a lot of information in your bio. At the bottom you can see your Recent Posts. There’s a ‘+’ button at the bottom where you can start writing a new post.


Feed: 5/5

You can access your Feed that has posts from others from groups you follow. Right now there aren’t a lot of groups. You can also go to a Type 1 or Type 2 specific daily chat from the main menu and see what other Type 2 diabetics are posting about today and you can post your encouragement, like posts, and report posts. It’s kind of like Facebook for diabetics.


Resources: 5/5

You will have a lot of access to resources like blog articles, meal plans and recipes, exercise videos, podcasts, and more. I love the exercise videos because they’re easy to follow along. I can’t wait for more videos to be added.


Overall: 5/5

You have access to so much through the app and I personally like to connect with others with Type 2 diabetes. There’s so much relatable content on the app and you can also connect with professionals like pharmacists and mental therapists. It’s a really great app and I highly recommend the app for fellow diabetics.

Guest Post: Monday Moves with DMP

Hello beautiful, wonderful people! Today I have a treat for you. We have a guest post from DMP – The Diabetes App, about their Monday Moves program. The app has exercise videos, recipes, a livestream archive of an array of topics, and a whole social media platform where we can connect with other diabetics. I will do an app review for you in the coming week, so keep an eye for that!


The benefits to working out are endless! From uplifting your mood, improving your cardiovascular health, to overall just feeling good about your body. However, despite all these known benefits, many people still find it difficult to get started. They ask themselves, what should I be doing? Am I doing this wrong? For those living with diabetes, exercise can provide even more benefits as it helps increase insulin resistance and can help some people with type 2 diabetes put their diabetes in remission. However, it can be daunting to do it all alone, and that’s why DMP created a plan so you don’t have to. 

DMP-The Diabetes App is a social platform in which people living with diabetes can connect with others going through the same thing. The app also offers a vast collection of resources including podcasts, recipes, exercise videos, articles, and more to help people with their diabetes management. DMP recently launched Monday Moves. Every Monday, DMP releases a new workout video for their users to follow along to. This keeps exercising fun and engaging. One of the main reasons that people quit their fitness regime is that they get bored of the same exercise routines week after week. With Monday Moves, DMP offers a fresh start to the beginning of every week. It reignites one’s passion for fitness and why they might have started this journey to begin with. Not only can people embark on this fitness journey with DMP, but by joining DMP they are connected to thousands of diabetics on the app. Another reason why people don’t stick to their workout? There is no one cheering them on. With an online support community, people can find the reassurance they need on days they feel like giving up.

Working out affects you more than just physically, it changes the way one sees themself. It shows them how capable they are and how strong they are. Like any journey, the important thing is to start slow and get informed. In the same way someone wouldn’t go down a ski slope without getting lessons, it’s important to get informed before starting any fitness regime. It’s recommended that people talk to their doctor before starting any fitness regime, and remember that DMP will be there along the way. After a workout, DMP urges its users to check out their recipe section for delicious recipes to support a healthy lifestyle.

If you are looking for a sign, this is it! Remember that fitness is about progress, not perfection. So strive towards getting better each and every day and try not to compare yourself to others. We are all in different stages and should be proud of what we have accomplished so far.

At DMP, we believe that when we work together, we are stronger.
