5 reasons why Covid-19 makes digital diabetes treatment critical
The public health crisis has undermined the economy and made people with chronic conditions more vulnerable and stressed. A validated program that can effectively help people manage their disease is invaluable, especially at a time when in-person physician visits are unavailable.
More than 200 healthcare professionals from 47 countries have ranked diabetes as the condition that will be most impacted by the reduction in healthcare resources due to Covid-19, according to a new white paper from Omada Health. Among the findings are:
- Covid-19 has made the need for personalized care critical.
- People with diabetes need to have access to support that fits their lifestyle, and is accessible when they need it most.
- Omada for Diabetes program participants achieved meaningful outcomes four months after beginning the program, according to a new study.
- Four months after beginning the program, participants decreased total cholesterol by 39 points on average for people with high cholesterol.
