Diabetic Complications are the Culprit
Diabetes itself is not fatal, its complications are the culprit. If diabetes is not properly controlled and the body is in a state of high blood glucose for a long time, blood glucose will damage blood vessels, nervous system and various organs. Common diabetic complications include stroke, cardiovascular disease, retinopathy, nephropathy, neuropathy, foot lesions etc., in which severe cases can lead to death. Since diabetes is a chronic disease with no obvious symptoms at the initial stage, its condition is easily underestimated. Until complications appear, it is already too late and irreversible. Therefore, early recognition of one's diabetic condition and the risk of developing complications can delay the onset at early stage.
A precise picture of treatment and disease progression
DProtect® addresses diabetes patients’ evolving needs. Through the licensed technologies and databases from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and Aisa Diabetes Foundation (ADF), it precisely predicts the risk of developing diabetic complications based on genetics and other acquired factors (such as body weight, HbA1c, blood pressure, LDL-C), and get the full picture of your genetic prediction for early insulin treatment and pharmacogenetics to different diabetes treatment options. Once the assessment results are in, your professional medical team may customize a personal health care plan and guidelines to help you improve diabetes, lower the risk of developing diabetic complications.
Patients with diabetes concerned about the risks of developing complications and those interested in better care and management are perfect candidates for DProtect®.

Mr Cheung's Story
"DProtect® improved my readings to delay onset of diabetic complications by giving me a clear plan to follow."
This story is inspired by our users' experiences and feedbacks and is presented here as illustration. Since each patient is unique, our services should not be seen in any way as guaranteeing outcomes.
I have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes for 3 years and DProtect® helped me cope with the disease. Before that, my readings were poor and I’ve heard about diabetes’ debilitating long-term complications. While I was worried that my condition would get worse as time goes by, I did not know what to do or where to start to control diabetes and tackle this problem.
Thanks to DProtect®, I now have the right tools to learn not only about my risk of developing complications, but also to predict my individual pharmacological responses to different treatments, improve diabetes by thorough management. DProtect® tells me how likely I’m to develop diabetic complications and which medications are likely to be more effective given my genetic profile and current health metrics.
More importantly, I was advised that I may benefit from having early insulin treatment. I was also given personalized health goals and lifestyle recommendations about what I can do to improve. The report gave me a clear perspective on the big picture and the complex interplay between genetics and other risk factors. The guidelines provided me with a precise road map about what I should do for daily self-care so as to control diabetes. After following these suggestions, my readings improved significantly.
I’m at a much better place now when it comes to complications. DProtect™ gave me the clarity I couldn’t get elsewhere. This type of personalised diabetes treatment solutions is unlike another tests on the market. I now live my life with confidence and stopped obsessing constantly about diabetes.
The Care Goes a Long Way
Genetic test results are lifelong but acquired risk factors are variable. GemVCare care for your needs comprehensively.
