Managing diabetes and its complications is a big challenge in itself. It can be even more daunting if the nature of your job demands eating out, a lot of travelling, high stress, and bizarre eating timings.

Trust me; you are not the only one living this kind of unhealthy lifestyle these days. But, all of this can be managed by making small positive lifestyle modifications under expert guidance.

With the help of personalised coaching, you can achieve—targeted blood sugar levels, reduce diabetes medicines, drop HbA1c levels, achieve weight-loss and much more.

With the help of Diabefly Pro, Naveen’s HbA1c reduced from 9.5% to 6.7% – which is very close to the prediabetes range. Not only that, but he also achieved a weight loss of 4 kgBMI reduced by 4%, and his doctor reduced his oral diabetes medications too!

Naveen’s medical history:

Naveen, a 51-year old male, was overweight and had a high BMI of 27.3kg/m2. His main concern was high blood sugar and increased weight. His other anxiety was a lack of physical activity in his busy routine.

He was into a sales job, and the nature of his work involved a lot of travelling and eating outside.

Naveen was diagnosed with diabetes 15 years ago. His doctor prescribed him anti-diabetic drugs to get his blood sugar readings under control. Naveen’s family also had a positive history of diabetes. Along with type 2 diabetes, Naveen also had high cholesterol for which he was on medications.

Naveen joined Diabefly Pro on his doctor’s recommendations with a strong desire to cut down his diabetes medications. And together with his Coach’s guidance and encouragement, he achieved it! His medications reduced at the end of 3 months, and this is how it happened.

How did Diabefly Pro help Naveen?

Naveen was on an Ambulatory Glucose Monitoring (AGM) device for the first 14 days of the program. This device recorded 1300+ blood sugar readings painlessly in two weeks. The device recorded blood sugar readings that gave a clear understanding of what exactly in his diet, exercise and other lifestyle habits caused fluctuations in Naveen’s blood sugar levels.

Based on this, Diabefly Coach made customised alterations in his diet, exercise and sleep. Naveen made changes in his daily routine based on his Coach’s advice and saw some positive results.

Naveen’s results from Diabefly Pro:

During the initial 14 days of the program, positive changes in the blood sugar levels were seen:

Parameter Days 1-7 (Before) Days 8-14 (After) Result
Daily Time In Range (TIR) Should aim to keep it above 70% 74% 87% 18% increase
Time above target Should aim to keep it at 0% 25% 0% Ideal value 100% decrease
Daily average blood sugar levels Should aim to keep it between 70 and 180 mg/dL for people with diabetes 143 mg/dL 101 mg/dL 29% decrease

Based on the learnings from the first two weeks, Diabefly Coach had made personalised changes in Naveen’s lifestyle. Below results were achieved in 3-months with Diabefly Pro:

Parameter Before Diabefly Pro After Diabefly Pro Result
Weight 82 kg 78 kg Lost 4 kg
HbA1c 9.5% 6.7% Reduced by 2.8%. Closer to the prediabetes range
Medications On anti-diabetic medicines Reduced anti-diabetic medicines Medication dose reduced (Tab Invokana 100mg got reduced to 50 mg)

Naveen’s problem areas and their solution:

His Coach understood that his lifestyle as a Sales Representative involves a lot of travel and eating out – so she suggested changes that he could easily incorporate.

These are the problem areas identified by Naveen’s Diabefly Coach and how changing them affected his health.

  1. Long meal gapsThe nature of Naveen’s job did not allow him to eat on time leading to long gaps in between the meals.His Coach counselled him to have frequent, small meals and gave him healthy meal options. They mutually decided a time for him to finish his meals.Eventually, the gaps in meals were reduced. Time-in-range improved by 18%.
  2. Unhealthy Snacking with refined carbsNavin preferred to have tea with rusk/biscuits and binge eating of unhealthy refined carbs. Due to this, his daily calories and fat exceeded his recommended daily allowance (RDA).His Health coach recommended healthy snack options like roasted chana, makhana, multigrain khakhra etc. With these modifications, his carb intake reduced by 21%.
  3. Intake of fruits with major mealsNaveen ate fruits with his main meals, like lunch and dinner. As a result, there was a spike in blood sugar after meals.His Diabefly Coach advised him to eat fruits with nuts as a mid-morning snack and avoid fruits with main meals. Naveen stopped eating fruits with main meals. His time-above-range improved by 100%.

Losing weight, cutting down on diabetes medicines and getting his blood sugar levels within the targeted range was a dream come true for Naveen. Controlling diabetes & its complications- something which Naveen’s previous generations couldn’t achieve – was made possible with Diabefly Pro’s personalised coaching.
