Press release from: IndianDiabetics

On the occasion of successful one year of operation, Dr. Ambrish Mithal stated “Diabetes is a lifestyle disease and is

managed by diet, exercise and medication in that order. Empowerment of the patient and family is the best way to manage

Diabetes. Every patient should be aware of his ABC – A1C, Blood Pressure and Cholesterol“.
Research says that any form of on-line support to a diabetic results in

better management of critical parameters, and hence prevention of complications. This is particularly useful and relevant for

professionals who are high-risk for diabetes because of the lack of work-life balance. They are unable to keep pace with

doctor’s appointments and monitoring. Sonik describes his experience “When it came to managing, I had to manage the diet and

exercise routine. With a schedule that involved travelling 3-4 days a week, finding the right form of exercise and building a

routine for the same was a challenge. Similar challenge was there in terms of managing the Tests (HbA1C, lipid profile and

eye tests). A reminder service for same would have worked wonders. Similarly with the doctor consultation, the in-city travel

is always a challenge and wait-time to meet the doctor. Most often the doctor would need only the parameters on Sugar, HbA1C

and other such tests. We felt online diabetes consultation would help a lot for self as well as for the doctors.”
“Finally, one has to keep a tab on the medicine reorders to avoid running out of stock at the last minute. Since mostly the

insulin and medicines are regular consumption, automated order management and delivery would seem logical service. Another

lesser known aspect of diabetes management is availability of “sugar free” and “diet food chart”. Getting the same even in a

Tier 1 city like – Bangalore, Delhi and Mumbai is a challenge; we can well imagine the plight of Tier 2 and Tier 3 towns.”
Worldwide there are 285M people who are Diabetics and the number is likely to increase to 438M by year 2030. According to The

International Diabetes Federation, India will account for close to 51 Million Diabetics by 2010, about every 5th Diabetic in

the world as an Indian earning India the dubious distinction of being the Diabetic Capital of the World.
