As the pandemic unfolded, COVID-19 became people’s central thought when health-related concerns arose. As a result, illnesses such as diabetes took a backseat, despite them being as common and dangerous as ever. Rajiv Shanker tested positive for COVID-19 in April 2021. Months of dizziness followed, which was immediately attributed to that. However, after a trip to the hospital to get a concrete explanation, Rajiv found out that his blood sugar levels were at 306 mg/dL, and his cholesterol levels were high.
Kajal Shanker, his wife, recalls not knowing how to deal with the diagnosis when Rajiv stumbled across the BeatO app on social media. The app provided him with easy-access regular monitoring and tracking of his blood sugar levels, and eventually he was able to bring his blood sugar down to 126 mg/dL.
Simultaneously, he got his cholesterol under control and lost 7 kg weight. Despite the intimidating lifestyle change that diabetes threatens, BeatO helped Rajiv get his health back under control to ensure he didn’t suffer any long-term damage.
