"DProtect® improved my readings 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. 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 diabetes 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, lifestyle recommendations and regular reminders 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. It also 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.
