Diagnosed with Pre Diabetes in September 2020
Loves to go on treks
Kanwalpreet lives in Jaipur with his wife and six year old son. Although he has long working hours, he continues to follow his passion for trekking.
He found out about his pre-diabetic condition in 2020. He immediately looked up his condition on the internet to find out how it could possibly affect his life.
“My friend who is a doctor said that my treatment was possible without any medication. I just needed to make certain lifestyle changes and follow the right diet. I wanted to do something about it before it aggravated further and I did not want to reach hbA1c level 7. I wanted to take control of the situation.”
“My job requires me to work for long hours and requires me to travel a lot. I used to eat whatever was readily available and it was particularly difficult for me to eat right during my travels. My unhealthy diet was also a major factor that had to be improved considering my pre diabetic condition.”
“I was told that I should monitor my blood sugar levels on a regular basis. This is when I decided to use BeatO in November 2020. I was thoroughly informed about the various plans that BeatO offered through the customer service. Earlier I was very irregular with my testing as I would sometimes do it four times a day and other times only once a week. BeatO made it super convenient for me to check my sugar levels on a regular basis.
BeatO Curv is just amazing. It is small and really easy to carry around and has helped me keep a track of my readings on the BeatO App. I do not have to remember or write down my reading as it gets auto-saved on the App.”
“My health coach played a crucial part in my journey. I really liked the diet plan provided by my health coach Payel. It included a lot of smoothies which were not only healthy but also delicious.They are fruit based, easy to make and good for your appetite. I lost over 30 kgs in the initial four months.”
He went on a 5 km walk everyday to maintain his fitness regime. He increased his jogging speed after knowing his diabetic condition. With a successful lifestyle change and the right diet, Kanwalpreet was able to bring down his weight from 125 kg to 88 kg. His HbA1c levels came down from 6.5 to 4.8 per cent.
“In every walk with nature, one receives more than he seeks.”
Kanwalpreet also loves to go on treks. He started trekking in 2007. It gives him unparalleled joy, and he plans to traverse more spaces in the years to come. Some of his memorable trekking experiences include the ones to Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Nepal and many more. His plans of going to Ladakh were halted due to the ongoing pandemic and he plans to take on that journey really soon. His ultimate goal is to go on a trek to Mt. Everest. Diabetes has never stopped him from doing what he loves.
“It is important that I stay fit on my travels. BeatO is my health companion on my journey. It is easy to carry around. I can stay fit on the go and I do not have to worry about finding a testing lab wherever I go.”
A star of BeatO unbeatables, Kanwal Preet describes BeatO as an all-in-one App. It provides him with a doctor, a glucometer and also a health coach. The health coaches are available round the clock, which is especially helpful during emergencies. He is extremely happy with the way BeatO has helped him in lowering his HbA1c levels.
His story inspired everyone around him. He proves it that with the right determination and changes, one can overcome every obstacle and lead a fulfilling life.
