Type 2 diabetes

Twenty years ago, type 2 diabetes didn’t feature on the World Health Organization’s ‘top ten global causes of deaths’ list. By 2016, it had become the 7th deadliest disease – and the direct cause of 1.6 million deaths. A further 2.2 million deaths were attributed to high blood sugar. The saddest part is that many of these deaths could have been prevented.

Tailored type 2 diabetes interventions

Type 2 diabetes isn’t down to luck or genetics; it develops over time, through inactivity and poor diet. It’s preventable and in many cases, reversible. Yet, approximately 1 in 11 people are living with diabetes – and type 2 diabetes accounts for 90% of these cases.

Our models calculate people’s risk of type 2 diabetes, while in-app messaging explains and addresses their risk and signposts them to at-home test kits. Test results are seamlessly ingested into the platform and trigger a series of tailored Insights plus follow-up reminders. I.e., to visit their GP or get re-tested.

We manage the logistics of shipping test kits and the processing of results globally, with leading laboratories around the world.

Loved by consumers, trusted by corporates

I must say the motivation of the insurance company for its clients to think about their condition, look at various recommendations and, based on on the evaluation, consider a possible lifestyle change or even visit an expert, is really nice

I wouldn’t have thought they (client) would have put an program like that together....It’s a nice surprise... feels like a natural progression for them to come into the 21st century...it does give them an aspect about caring about their clientele, how can we make it better for you, how can we make your health better...feels like they’re a compassionate, forward thinking organisation who are looking out for their clients

I have recommended this platform to a list of my friends. Best part for me is how is the mood feature, just knowing and selecting make you pay attention to what’s happening. I was suffering anxiety when I first downloaded and knowing triggers etc helped significantly.
