Hello! My name is Jennifer Lindley. I have always been passionate about diabetes as I have had Type 1 for over 28 years and my son, Jordan is Type 1 too. He has had diabetes most of his life (19 years – he is 20). We have been very fortunate thru our lives to be able to use the most advanced technology to monitor our diabetes. I have always believe in quality of life while we wait for a cure.

I am the owner of Essential Preparedness Products (EPP). We are a new Utah based company. We launched our first product – Diabetic Ecase August 2011. I developed this product based upon the events that took place from Hurricane Katrina. As I watched the events of Hurricane Katrina unfold, I remember a news clip of a person stranded on his rooftop. He had spray painted the word “DIABETIC” on the roof. I knew at that moment what his needs were and felt helpless. We are also in production of an Asthma Ecase that will launch this year.

My vision and mission are simple...
Vision: To revolutionize emergency preparedness for people living with chronic illnesses.

Mission: To prepare people living with chronic illnesses to be their own personal hero through the receipt of a Diabetic Ecase, preparedness education and community inclusion.

I have also had the privilege to serve on the BOD for JDRF – Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation - Utah Chapter.

Pre-Diabetes Testing - Type 1 Diabetes Trial Net Screening

Being a T1 diabetic and having my oldest son diagnosed as an infant, I always feared for my 2 other children getting diabetes. I had my 10 year old daughter tested in the Type 1 Diabetes Trial Net Screening because she was showing some crazy blood sugars when she was sick a while back.From what I understand on this test... they are tested for 3 particular autoantibodies. If the test is negative, then no diabetes showing at this point of life. If 1 or more autoantibodies are present then there…See More

Pretty much visiting and kibbitzing and exchanging information, stories, sympathy, etc.? I don't bother too much with groups as there are so many of them, I mostly hang out on the forums and bit on the blogs and that's it. A lot of people only hang out in the groups and that's ok too. I also do the TuAnalyze reporting up at the top and like tossing my numbers into their pot as it feels like I'm doing something?
