KC started using SugoSure just 4 months after he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes at the age of 37. At that time his blood glucose had been brought under control but was not yet very stable.
Dr Ronald Ling
Dr Ling is CEO of SugoSure and has led SugoSure's design and development to address gaps in care for diabetes, creating a more comprehensive and clinically-valid digital health approach to diabetes than any currently available in Asia.
LT was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes at the age of 35, 4 years before she tried SugoSure. Although she was aware of the potential complications of diabetes, in the years following her diagnosis LT paid little attention to her blood glucose control and made few lifestyle changes.
When G was first diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, he was confident he could self-manage. He was familiar with the condition as his father had long-standing type 2 diabetes and his sister had gestational diabetes when she was pregnant.
M was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes nearly two decades ago but felt that he had never really got things under control. For many years his attitude was “This is life, I have to accept what life gives me”
This is part 2 of an update which provides detail on how to maintain a healthy balanced diet.
Two key goals of diabetes management are to achieve and maintain blood glucose levels in the normal range (or as close to normal level as possible) and to prevent or slow the rate of development of diabetes-related complications.
Diet is a key aspect of diabetes management: a well-planned and balanced diet provides adequate nutrition and helps keep your blood glucose levels within your target range.
2 articles explain what is a healthy balanced diet. In this first article we provide an overview then focus on carbohydrates. In the second article we discuss fibre, protein and fats.
The SugoSure Beta Test was run from November 2019 to April 2020 in collaboration with 15 patients, 2 health coaches and 6 physicians (2 specialists and 4 GPs from a large corporate medical group).
Outcomes from Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in Singapore are not where they should be and Digital Health systems like SugoSure aim to drive a transformation of care delivery for chronic diseases.
Transformation is imperative for several reasons: the rising prevalence of chronic diseases, limited human resources to provide care, cost (diabetes is expected to cost the Singapore economy S$1.8 billion annually by 2050).
