Samarth Eldercare in partnership with Smit.fit, a leading diabetes management company has launched a diabetes care programme for elderly diabetic patients.
The unique approach, tailored for seniors, for the first time brings together accurate and continuous tracking, personalised lifestyle planning across diet, physical activity, sleep and relaxation, self-awareness and medication adherence. The solution will provide adherence support and coaching by experts, and support for all the critical stressors whether health, home or environment related, that are proven to be a major cause of aggravation for seniors managing diabetes.
Diabetes is one of the most prevalent chronic conditions among Indians above the age of 60 years, the third major contributor to non-communicable diseases and overall mortality in India. The latest Longitudinal Ageing Study in India by the Union ministry of family and health welfare shows that more than 26 per cent seniors in urban India were diagnosed with high blood sugar levels. And there is likely an even larger percent of seniors who remain undiagnosed or at high risk.
Traditionally, the treatment has relied on medication and dietary management, with the individual measuring and managing medication doses. Smit.fit systematically complements this with technology based continuous and non-invasive tracking, on demand access to doctors and experts for nutrition and physical activity, and personalised recommendations and guides.
According to Mayo Clinic, ranked No. 1 for diabetes and endocrinology in the US, The hormones our body produces in response to prolonged stress may prevent insulin from working properly, which will raise the blood sugar and create even more stress. As per diabetes.org.uk, if stress doesn’t go away, it can keep your blood sugar levels high and put you at higher risk of diabetes complications.
For seniors and elderly, the most common causes of stress tend to be health of self or spouse, unfinished tasks at home or outside, sudden changes in schedule or home support system and often lack of support in managing these situations. Recognising that any one of them is enough to undo much of the benefit from medication, the holistic treatment leverages Samarth’s unique care capability focussing on 360° needs of seniors to help manage diabetes sustainably and without stress.
The programme, which is offered as a subscription through the partnership between Smit.fit and Samarth, is available across India.
