BeatO Unbeatables: Ritesh Jain
35 years old, Jeweller
Diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes
Ritesh Jain is 35 years old and lives in Bangalore with his wife, parents and two sons. He is a jeweller by profession and owns multiple outlets in Bangalore. He regularly gets his routine check-up and it was through this that he got to know about his diabetic condition.
“I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in 2009 and my HbA1c was 11.3%. I used to shiver and sweat all the time. My family was very apprehensive and I immediately consulted a doctor. I was prescribed certain medications but they only aggravated my condition and the treatment wasn’t helpful at all.”
He was leading a poor lifestyle earlier which had led him to develop this chronic condition. He was advised to monitor his sugar levels regularly to manage his condition.
“I started my journey with BeatO in 2018, when I was looking for a way to keep a track of my sugar readings. BeatO offered a quick monitoring of my HbA1c levels. My health coach prescribed me a low carb diet and I was on a zero- carb diet for six months. It was immensely helpful in my journey of controlling my diabetic condition. I practice meditation on a regular basis which has helped me bring down my stress levels.”
Mr. Ritesh has a fitness regime and he follows all the recommendations given by his health coach. His outcomes with BeatO have been phenomenal. With the right dedication towards his goal, he was able to achieve the desired outcome.
“ My HbA1c levels have come down from 11.3% to 6.8%. My fasting reading has come down from 500 mg/dl to 120 mg/dl. My stress levels have gone down and I don’t sweat as much as before.”
He has lost 25 kg of weight which has instilled a sense of confidence in him. Earlier he took 40 units of insulin in a day and now it has come down to zero.
“Whenever my sugar level is high or low, I instantly get a call from my health coach.
She helped me understand the reason behind the change and helped me make the required changes. BeatO is like a doctor who continuously monitors your sugar reading. The BeatO health coaches are doing their part very well and they help diabetic patients in coming out of their condition very soon.”
Mr. Ritesh has shown unparalleled grit and determination in managing his diabetic condition. He is able to lead a much happier and healthier life now.
“I am looking forward to a 100 percent reversal of my diabetic condition.
I want people to know that diabetes is not a lifelong condition and it can be controlled with the help of the right lifestyle and dietary changes.“
He is very passionate about his work as he has been in it for the past 17 years. With a healthier body, he is able to work more efficiently.
“Being a jeweller, I like to do more research in my own field and I want to give others an opportunity to work with me. I want to work with enthusiastic and motivated people who can help me in expanding my business. I write journals and I also plan on writing my biography soon.”
