ELCIES supports the treatment of type 2 diabetes
Insulin is the hormone that regulates the blood glucose level. In Type 2 diabetes, insulin production is insufficient and cells have become less sensitive to insulin. As a result, the blood glucose level rises and causes damage to heart, blood vessels and a variety of organs. Worldwide, the number of Type 2 diabetes is rapidly increased in recent years.
We know that low physical activity, smoking, a poor diet and being overweight all increase the risk of developing diabetes. Genetic factors are also involved, but lifestyle factors are absolutely dominant. And this actually is good news, because there is a lot you can do yourself to either prevent or cure diabetes, simply by changing your lifestyle and diet. Of course, we all know It’s not that simple…. And what exactly is a healthy lifestyle and a proper diet?
We all know that wearables and other sensors can support changing your lifestyle. They give instant feedback and help you to set goals and stay in control. In case of type 2 diabetes a glucose meter, activity tracker and smart scales can help you to make this change. With the activity tracker you set your personal goals (with or without your lifestyle coach or doctor) and the glucose meter and scales show your progress.
With the ELCIES platform, not only you can view the data from your glucose meter, activity tracker and smart scale in one place, but also you are able to share (securely!) your data with your personal lifestyle coach or doctor. This way he or she can support and advise you online and real-time.
Based on your personal data, you get dietary tips and advice that can help you to make healthy everyday choices. Just to make it easier for you to do what’s right for you.
The iHealth and Medisana devices are already integrated into ELCIES platform, but if you want to add other sensors or devcies to your ELCIES account, Please contact us today for more information.
