Sonali’s Diabefly Physiotherapy Journey:

We started with an in-depth call to understand her medical history and current fitness levels. Based on this, Sonali’s Physiotherapist created a personalised exercise prescription which aimed at slowly improving her activity levels. It had a mix of cardio exercises with strength training exercises to help her achieve her blood sugar goals. The plan was created based on the results of her initial assessments.

Following this, Sonali was able to exercise every day as per her Physiotherapist’s counselling, guidance and constant motivation. At the 45-day mark – when Sonali was mid-way through her program – she and her Physiotherapists spoke again to check the progress so far. At this point, Sonali was also given a new exercise prescription to help up her levels.

Lastly, at the end of the program, she and her Physiotherapist were happy to see the progress Sonali had made in 3 months. Her fitness levels showed remarkable improvement and she felt healthier overall.

The 3-month journey with Diabefly has had a positive impact on Sonali’s life. She is proud of how far she has come in her fitness journey too. And the fact that her Doctor has not put on her any medications for diabetes is the cherry on the cake.

In fact, leading such a disciplined life also benefitted her post-COVID recovery. The results we’ve presented today were seen six weeks after her COVID-19 recovery and that’s a great achievement!
