High Prediabetes Risk and Associated Risk Factors in Indian Population Based on Online Prediabetes Risk Test

A prediabetes risk test questionnaire was completed by 1722 people and the scoring was done for three groups including high risk (score >5), medium risk (score 3-5), and low risk (score <3) for developing prediabetes and eventually diabetes among Indian population. The risk of prediabetes was low, medium, and high in 21 %, 65 % and, 12 % of participants respectively. Out of all the participants, 44 % had age ≥ 40 years, 71% were male, 96 % were asian, 74 % had BMI ≥ 23 kg/m2, 59 % have a family history of diabetes, 17 % had high blood pressure, and 44 % were performing physical activity below 150 mins/week. The odds ratio for score in high or medium range for people with BMI ≥ 23 kg/m2 and age ≥ 40 years was 38.51 and 78.89 respectively. The study highlights the importance of using a prediabetes risk calculator as a tool for improving awareness about the risk of developing prediabetes.

Video Call Based Assessment of Physical Fitness Through Diabefly® Digital Therapeutics Program for People With T2D in India

In this study, we conducted videocall based assessment of physical fitness among 470 participants of Diabefly® program with diabetes. Among these 470 participants, 69.4% were in the obese category with 42.1% being non-exercisers. 42.1% were aerobic exercisers while only 15.7% were exercisers. Mild to moderate pain was reported by 36.1% participants. Cardiorespiratory fitness, upper limb strength, core strength and flexibility were significantly lower among non-exercisers as compared to exercisers. The assessment along with consideration of pain and current exercise pattern will help in development of personalized exercise prescription for PWD.

Video Call-based Fitness Assessment shows Poor Fitness in People with Type II Diabetes: Findings from Diabefly Digital Therapeutics Program

A fitness assessment by qualified physiotherapist helps in understanding the baseline fitness of individuals and thus generating appropriate exercise prescriptions. The current study assessed and showed safety and feasibility of conducting video call-based assessment of physical fitness among one hundred participants with type II diabetes by physiotherapists. Out of all the participants, a good range score was achieved by 52% in 6MWT, 17% in push-up test, 1% in wall sit test, 6% in sit-up test, and 9% in V-sit and reach test while current physical activity did not show any association with performance in fitness tests. The study also highlighted the poor glycemic control, high cardiovascular risk, and poor level of physical fitness in people with diabetes in India and these insights can help in developing personalized exercise plans for people with diabetes.

Evaluating Diabetes related Distress in People with Type 2 DM - Insights from Diabefly Digital Therapeutics Platform.

It is important to assess an individual’s stress levels so that a highly customized diabetes management program can be designed. This study has evaluated the level of distress among Indians diagnosed with Type 2 DM through the Diabefly platform. 130 participants were analyzed using Diabetes Distress Scale and found that 55% had high diabetes distress, 60% had high emotional burden of diabetes, 58% had high regimen distress, 23% had high interpersonal distress and 31% had high physician distress. Therefore, in order to manage the diabetes effectively it is important to equally consider emotional and mental well-being as compared to physical health of people with diabetes.

Effect of personalized glycemic response based digital therapeutics on dietary behavior in people with type 2 diabetes

Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) can help in retrospective evaluation of glycemic response which further aids in diabetes management. This study has analyzed the effectiveness of personalized glycemic response from the Diabefly-Pro program on diet and nutritional habits of 58 people with T2D in India. Among them a momentous reduction in daily mean calorie intake, amount of carbohydrate and fat intake by 6.97% , 8.36%, and 8.89 % was observed respectively. This indicates the potential of the Diabefly-Pro program to support suitable changes in nutritional habits and to improve glycemic control thus reducing complications associated with diabetes.

Real-world effectiveness of Diabefly® digital therapeutics program for improvement in diabetes- related distress among people with Type 2 Diabetes

Diabetes related distress (DRD) has been associated with compromised diabetes self-care behavior and poor glycemic control. Managing DRD is immensely important and this study explored the potential of a virtual psychological consult for participants and further analyzed DRD among them before and after the program. Post-program assessment using Diabetes Distress Scale showed the levels of emotional burden and regimen distress were reduced by 25% and 18% respectively while physician distress and interpersonal distress were mildly reduced by 9% and 3% respectively. Therefore, this study safely concluded that remotely executed behavioral interventions were effective in managing diabetes adequately.

Real-world effectiveness of Diabefly®-Pro digital therapeutics program for improving postprandial glycemic response in people with diabetes through personalized coaching

Postprandial hyperglycemia has been associated with the development of various complications among people with type 2 diabetes (T2D). In order to have better control over postprandial glycemic response (PPGR), personalized coaching based on the insights from continuous glucose monitoring report is helpful. This study has analyzed the effectiveness of Diabefly®-pro program for better management of glycemic response through personalized coaching and showed a remarkable improvement in PPGR by leading to a decrease of both AUC and iAUC post dinner.

Feasibility of video call-based physiotherapy through Diabefly digital therapeutics program: Analysis of physical fitness and musculoskeletal pain in people with diabetes

Detailed analysis of factors like an individual's physical activity status and presence of musculoskeletal pain enables the creation of a personalized exercise plan. A fitness assessment was performed in 160 patients and 69% among them were exercisers while 31% were non-exercisers. Among exercisers 83.8% achieved poor fitness scores and 16.2% showed excellent scores. Similarly, among non-exercisers 87.8% achieved a poor fitness score and 12.2% had excellent scores. The analysis of strength test scores among patients having upper, lower, and spinal pain showed lower strength in those respective areas along with poor flexibility in patients with lower and spinal pain. Hence this study showed the feasibility of video call-based analysis of physical activity status thus leading to generation of a personalized exercise plan for people with T2D
