As the calendar turns a fresh page and we welcome the start of a new chapter of our lives, it’s great time to introspect the past and set new goals for the future. The beginning of the year does not only signify a date change but also a symbolic opportunity for renewal and commitment to one’s well-being. As we usher into 2024 its time to grab the moment and find the path to set our intentional goals to manage your diabetes this year.
Dr. Prashanth Subramaniam, Head of Medical Affairs, South Asia, Korea & Taiwan, Diabetes Care, Abbott, “In 2024, people with diabetes must make a pledge to commit to managing their condition well. Insufficient monitoring limits the available data, making it challenging to make informed decisions based on actionable insights. Therefore, people living with diabetes must promise themselves that they will regularly monitor their glucose levels, make lifestyle modifications, and try their best to stick to goals. There are many new technologies that will help support these goals. For example, continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) devices that are compatible with smartphones can help you stay on top of your glucose management even while on the go.”
Through the new year, one should aim to keep their glucose levels in the specified target range (commonly 70 – 180 mg/dl). This can be easily done with digital health tools alongside CGM devices. When paired together, these technologies can further support people on their management journey through the year. Additionally, it also creates an ecosystem that helps people effortlessly stay connected with their doctors and caregivers. This represents a new chapter in blending glucose monitoring effortlessly into a patient’s daily routine, enabling them to live a fuller, healthier life.
