How smart monitoring solutions delighted a diabetic?


Diabetes is fast becoming a full-fledged epidemic in India.  Prevention through lifestyle changes, early detection through timely screening, and ongoing treatment and monitoring are the need of the hour.

Management of diabetes is not limited to managing data alone, but managing patients as well. Care providers are required to screen all their patients for diabetes and pre-diabetes. Once diagnosed with diabetes, physicians need to have a register of such patients so as to help them keep track of each patient or at-risk patient, and this can also be a database of diabetes trends for future reference.

With the wide influx of mHealth applications and connected devices pushed into market today, connected health has already become a reality. This empowered diabetics with user centric applications and transformed the diabetic patients into an actor of their own health.

Digitization of health records has assisted doctors considerably as it has minimised the spent on gathering of medical history or flipping through past paper records brought in patients. During face-to-face consultation, physician provides instructions on how patients could manage their diabetes condition, and at the same time, he/she also needs to keep tabs on whether these patients are adhering to the care instructions provided - about diet, timing of meals, timing of blood glucose measurement at home, type and duration of activity/exercise, etc.  Connecting with a digital logbook/mobile application has simplified this process both for the patients as well as doctors and is already playing a big role in personal healthcare.

For diabetics, monitoring sugar levels is a basic and highly important part of daily their life, so having a quick and easy solution is essential. At home, gone are the days when patients felt demotivated or confused about following the instructions given by their doctors. Wireless devices like a Smart Glucometer solved the problems of many patients in terms of their regular sugar monitoring; once measured, the glucose readings are seamlessly transferred to the smartphone application and will be available to doctors, paramedics, or nurses real time. This arrangement enables users to be health aware and engage effectively with their doctor/doctor office to refresh their knowledge about diet, medicine, activity, etc.

Diabetes comes with chronic and irreversible complications. Prevention, early detection, and ongoing treatment are the only ways to deal with this “silent killer” disease.
