Living a stressful, sedentary lifestyle with poor eating habits is very common these days, especially among the youth. No wonder, people fall prey to diabetes in the productive years of their life.

But, with new-age technology solutions and personalised coaching, diabetes can be managedBetter health outcomes are seen in newly diagnosed cases of diabetes, as in the case described below.

Diabefly helped Adhiraaj achieve better control of his blood sugar levels. In just 3 months, his insulin injections stopped completely. His HbA1c dropped from 10.3% to 5.7%, which falls in the prediabetes range. His fasting blood sugar levels reduced by 75% from 430 mg/dL to 105 mg/dL, and he lost 2.5 kg.

Adhiraaj’s medical history:

Adhiraaj, a 34-year old male, with a BMI of 22.4 kg/m2, was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. He also had a positive family history of diabetes.

Adhiraaj always struggled with his lifestyle management that eventually led to the progression of diabetes with soaring high average fasting blood sugar levels of 430 mg/dL.

To manage his uncontrolled blood sugar levels, Adhiraaj’s doctor had prescribed him insulin injections initially. But, switched to oral diabetes medications in the later months.

Soon after confirming type 2 diabetes diagnosis in July 2020, Adhiraaj’s doctor advised him to join Diabefly for personalised lifestyle guidance. Based on his doctor’s recommendation, Adhiraaj joined Diabefly in August 2020 for 3 months to get his blood sugar levels in control.

How did Diabefly help Adhiraaj?

During the first 7 days of the program, Adhiraaj took 20 SMBG (self-monitoring of blood glucose) readings with the help of a glucometer. In addition to this, he used the Fitterfly Metabolic Health App to track his food intake, physical activity, sleep patterns and much more!

These SMBG readings and food diary entries gave his Diabefly Coach valuable insights to identify how his blood sugar levels rise and fall throughout the day based on his diet and daily routine.

Based on these insights, Diabefly Coach gave him a customised diet & lifestyle management plan on day 8th. The blood glucose readings were repeated on day 14th.

The Diabefly Coach closely monitored his progress and repeated his SMBG readings every 15 days until the end of the program. With Diabefly’s personalised technology-driven care things changed radically for Adhiraaj.

Adhiraaj’s results from Diabefly:

He saw positive outcomes within the first 14 days of the program. His outcomes were as follows:

Parameter Days 1-7 (Before) (in mg/dL) Days 8-14 (After) (in mg/dL) Result

Adhiraaj’s problem areas and their solution:

After closely monitoring and understanding Adhiraaj’s lifestyle, food diary, SMBG charts; his Diabefly Coach identified the main problem areas. Accordingly, she gave him practical and straightforward solutions.

Long meal gaps

Adiraaj’s meal timings were irregular with long gaps, especially between lunch and dinner. As a result, hypoglycemia occurred towards the end of the day.His Diabefly Coach advised him to include small and frequent meals during the day and avoid long gaps. She guided him on the importance of timely meals.

Nutritional imbalance

Adhiraaj’s current diet had very low fibre, protein and micronutrient intake; which did not meet his minimum dietary requirements for his age and BMI.To correct this, the Diabefly Coach explained him the plate method to balance the nutritional intake.

She suggested ways to increase protein intake by including non-vegetarian food sources.Also, his Coach shared easy-to-cook & delicious salad recipes through the Fitterfly Metabolic Health App to add more fibre in his diet.

For improving his micronutrients intake like zinc, magnesium & calcium; the Diabefly Coach supplemented his diet with nuts and oilseeds.

Consumption of processed food items

Adhiraaj consumed highly processed food with a high glycemic index (GI) like biscuits, chips, cookies, Indian namkeen like bhujiamatthis etc.

These high GI-food items cause sudden fluctuations in his blood sugar levels leading to glycemic shock, thereby bringing irreparable damage to his body.However, it was managed by his Diabefly Coach by substituting these processed food items with healthy and handy snack options like khakhramakhane, roasted chana etc.

In 3 months, Diabefly completely revamped Adhiraaj’s life. He got over with the pain and discomfort of repeated insulin injections, his overall health improved, and the fear of living with poorly controlled diabetes was now gone.

This case reiterates that — an early guided move is the RIGHT MOVE! So, why wait? Don’t let poorly controlled diabetes become a part of your everyday life.
