48 years old, New Delhi
Diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes
Munish Duggal is 48 years old. He lives in New Delhi with his wife, children and mother. He works for a Health Insurance Company. He was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in 2018.
“In 2018, my company had conducted a routine medical checkup and that’s when I found out that I have Type 2 Diabetes. Even my father had diabetes, so it did not come as a shock to me. I immediately consulted my doctor as I wanted to take control of my situation.”
He narrates his journey with BeatO-
“I got to know about BeatO through social media. Actually I was looking for a good and affordable glucometer when I found out about BeatO in October 2020.
Earlier I had to write down my sugar readings. I got to know that BeatO was offering a better mechanism to record the readings which made diabetes management very convenient for me.”
He says that the changes that his health coach suggested were easy to incorporate in his lifestyle.
“The best thing I like about BeatO is that my health coach recommended gradual and not immediate changes which could be made to my diet and lifestyle. They helped me manage my stress which could help me control my diabetes. They recommended that I should also fix my sleep schedule.”
His improvements have been exceptional with BeatO. Over the course of two years his HbA1c has come down from 6.5% to 5.9%. He has also lost over 10 kg of weight. His fasting reading has come down from 130 mg/dL to 110 mg/dL.
He says that his improvements were possible only because of the unfettered dedication by his health coach. She has been extremely crucial in his journey towards becoming a healthier version of himself.
“My health coach showed me gradual results which made me more confident and motivated to control my diabetic condition. They showed me that I could live without taking any kind of medication.”
“When my sugar level is in the high range, I immediately get a call from my health coach. She helps me understand what could have led to this fluctuation. I got instant guidance to rectify the situation.
I was also recommended low-carb flour to give me better control of my weight. Both me and my wife eat it as a part of our daily meals.”
Summing up his experience with BeatO, he says-
“Since I travel a lot, BeatO’s glucometer pouch is extremely easy to carry. I use all the features available on the BeatO App. I have also recommended other people to use this wonderful App.All my sugar readings are available at a single place. It helps me assess my progress in a better manner.”
Mr. Munish likes to read financial books in his free time. He also loves to go out with his family. He can now live and enjoy his life in a more care-free manner. His family has been extremely supportive in his journey. They constantly remind him to check his sugar levels.
