33 years old, Kanpur
Diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes
Vaibhav Gupta is 33 years old and works as an engineer in Kanpur. He lives with his wife, mother and daughter. His story is a true example of how one can overcome adversities in life with the right grit and motivation.
“It was during the first lockdown in 2020, I lost my job and my wife was also pregnant. It was at that time that I started experiencing frequent urination, hair loss and weight loss. I had drastically lost a lot of weight within 2-3 months.
I got myself tested and that’s when I found out that I have Type 1 Diabetes.”
“Mera blood pressure bhi bahut high rehta tha”
He and his family felt really apprehensive as to how they will be able to manage his diabetic condition. They had even thought that it would be a tiresome and expensive process.
“My doctor had prescribed certain medicines to me and had recommended that I needed to monitor my sugar levels on a regular basis.”
“Mere friends ne mujhe BeatO suggest kara. I went forward with their advice and bought their smartphone-enabled glucometer.”
He had led a very sedentary lifestyle earlier. He was unable to incorporate any kind of exercise in his routine and lacked motivation to make the right changes to his lifestyle.
“Maine meetha khana bilkul band kar diya.“
“I started cycling on a regular basis and tried to include as many organic products in my diet. I made sure that I drink karela juice and green tea everyday.”
“Main regularly Team BeatO se baat karta hu. My HbA1c has come down from 12.9% to 7.6%.”
Vaibhav has shown excellent improvements with the BeatO App. His blood pressure is now controlled and he also feels more energetic now. His medication has also reduced to half. Earlier his fasting reading was 410 mg/dL, which is now within the controlled range.
“Maine apne saare family members ko yeh products use karna ko kaha hai.“
“I make sure that my wife uses these products while preparing food for our family everyday. These products are readily available on the App and get easily delivered at my doorstep.”
Vaibhav remains extra careful with his diet and never skips monitoring his sugar levels. He describes it as the key to managing his diabetic condition.
“BeatO is excellent. I love using their products. I can carry the glucometer everywhere I go and I do not have to worry about skipping my sugar reading.”
Initially overcome with the fear of managing his diabetic condition, Vaibhav Gupta is now leading a stress-free life. It is only by incorporating the right changes in his lifestyle that he was able to witness a drop in his high HbA1c levels.
