2020, a year that brought irreparable changes in the lives of many. The pandemic gave uninvited calls to newly diagnosed cases of diabetes. The spike in diabetes or borderline diabetes cases was mainly due to poor lifestyle choices such as stress-induced binge eating, reduced physical activity, and increased anxiety because of the fear of contracting the virus.

But it’s not the end of the world! With personalised technology, you will have better results if you take steps early on to manage your newly diagnosed diabetes.

With the help of Diabefly, Aman reduced his HbA1c by 4.7% from 9.1% to 4.4%, lost 3kgs, and reduced the dosage of his medication too — in just 3 months!

Aman’s Medical History

Aman, a 51-year old male with a BMI of 23 kg/m2, was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Aman always struggled with his lifestyle management which further worsened during the pandemic. His unhealthy lifestyle choices led to his being diagnosed with diabetes in October 2020.

At the time of the diagnosis, his HbA1c was 9.1%, with fasting blood sugar of 152 mg/dL and post-prandial blood sugar of 202 mg/dL. To get his blood sugar levels in control, his doctor had prescribed him a combination of antidiabetic drugs.

Aman’s doctor had diagnosed him with hypertension (high blood pressure) and anaemia, but he was not under any medication for the same.

After confirming his diagnosis, Aman’s doctor advised him to join Diabefly for personalised coaching under a certified Diabetes Educator & Coach. After knowing more about the Diabefly program from his doctor, Aman was more than excited to enrol on the program.

How did Diabefly help Aman?

Aman took 20 SMBG (self-monitoring of blood glucose) readings with a glucometer during the initial 7 days of the program. He also used the Fitterfly Wellness App to log his food diary, exercise routine, sleep schedule, water intake, and much more!

By correlating his SMBG readings with his food and exercise logs, his Diabefly Coach — Misbah Shaikh, got valuable insights about what caused the ups and downs in Aman’s blood sugar levels throughout the day.

Based on these insights, Misbah curated a personalised diet & lifestyle management plan on day 8th for Aman. Aman repeated his blood glucose readings on day 14th and saw positive outcomes.

Misbah closely monitored his progress and repeated his SMBG readings every 15 days until the end of the program. With Diabefly’s personalised diabetes management, things changed drastically for Aman.

Aman’s results from Diabefly

Aman saw the following positive outcomes within the first 14 days of the program:

Aman’s problem areas and their solution:

After gaining a thorough understanding of the exact factors that led to the fluctuation in blood sugar levels, Misbah created a personalised diabetes management plan for Aman.

Here are six things that she did for Aman to manage his blood sugar levels: 

  1. She advised him not to skip meals and avoid having gaps of more than 3.5 to 4 hours in-between each meal.
  2. She corrected his nutritional imbalances — reduced carbs by cutting down on the portion size and increased protein, micronutrient, and fibre intake through nutrient-dense meal plans.
  3. She discouraged him from having fruits with the main meals as it caused a sudden spike in the blood sugar levels that led to episodes of glycemic shock.
  4. She motivated Aman to exercise – like 45 minutes of yoga and 30-minute morning walks.
  5. She helped him figure out what to eat while going out with family and friends to prevent his blood sugar from rising above normal values.
  6. She gave him an option-based meal plan instead of a generic meal plan. This helped Aman to make healthier meal choices. Additionally, Misbah gave him easy-to-cook healthy recipes which he could cook by himself when he relocated to a new city.

COVID-19 indirectly took a toll on Aman’s health. Disrupted work-life balance, poor dietary choices and increased stress levels caused uncontrolled diabetes. But, with Diabefly’s proven technology and personalised coaching, his diabetes got in control, and that too — in just 3 months!
