back arrow Case Study: Mr Ashwin Sathe
Ashwin's Medical History & Profile
Age 51 years
Weight (Before Diabefly Pro) 90 kg
Height 184 cm
BMI (Before Diabefly Pro) 26.5 kg/m2
Health Conditions Prediabetes (Diagnosed one month before enrolling in Diabefly Pro)
  • Not on any diabetes medications
  • Overweight with high blood sugar.
  • High blood pressure (hypertension), on medication.
  • High cholesterol (dyslipidemia), on medication.

Every year 15% of people with prediabetes/ borderline diabetes progress to diabetes. This risk can be reduced or delayed with a healthy lifestyle - which acts as a precaution.

Since Ashwin was recently diagnosed with prediabetes, his Doctor suggested he try changing his lifestyle before starting medications. To help him eat healthy, exercise regularly, improve his sleep and manage his stress, the Doctor recommended Diabefly Pro - a 3-month lifestyle management program for people with diabetes and prediabetes. To manage his blood sugars without medications, Ashwin enrolled in Diabefly Pro and this is how we helped him.

CGM Device Journey

What makes Diabefly Pro unique in its approach is the 14-day CGM phase - where we correlated Ashwin’s diet & lifestyle with his blood sugar fluctuations. These were the results from his CGM journey.

Days 1-7 (Before)

Initially, Ashwin followed his regular lifestyle with no changes in his usual diet, exercise and sleep routine

Days 8

Based on the insights from the CGM report, his Diabefly Coach suggested easy-to-follow diet and lifestyle modifications.

Days 8-14 (After)

Ashwin incorporated the lifestyle modifications in his routine while still on the AGM device.

Parameter Days 1-7 (Before) Days 8-14 (After) Result
Daily Time In Range (TIR) Should aim to keep it above 70% 83% 86% 4% increase
Time above target Should aim to keep it at 0% 16% 10% Closer to 0% now 38% decrease
Daily average blood sugar levels Should aim to keep it between 70
and 180 mg/dL for people with diabetes
118 mg/dL 105 mg/dL 11% decrease

Following the 14-day CGM phase, Ashwin got two and a half months of continuous support from his Diabefly Coach to make changes in his diet, physical activity levels, improving sleep and managing stress.

Understanding his current lifestyle and how it was affecting his blood sugars through the CGM reports helped his Coach make impactful changes in such a short amount of time. It gave him time to make changes, build habits and finally change his behaviour.
