Clare was referred to the diabetes specialist clinic with an HbA1c of 102 mmol/mol. Clare hadn’t been engaging with her diabetes care and admits she had been “in denial” with her diabetes management for about twenty years. She hadn’t tried using a health management app before and she very rarely checked her blood glucose; usually only when she knew that she had an upcoming appointment with her consultant.
At the specialist clinic Clare was set up with Accu-Chek Instant with mySugr, she found it helped to make her interested in her blood glucose readings. She is now monitoring twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. She finds that having the graph, and being able to see her own data helps to motivate her, she now feels she can make a difference to her diabetes management.
Clare’s HbA1c is now the lowest it’s ever been in her life, at 44 mmol/mol, and Clare was discharged from the diabetes specialist service after six months.
Even though she’s left the service her confidence is boosted because she has the mySugr app.
