You have Diabetes too?

Some people are diagnosed with both diabetes and high blood pressure (hypertension). Doctors call this “comorbidity” or “metabolic syndrome”. We have developed a digital combination program to help you manage both conditions. If this is the case for you, our Diabetes & Hypertension Guide can provide you with comprehensive support.

Medical assistance

We want to keep in touch with you, so you will be invited to a
regular video or telephone consultation with one of our
doctors. We will also expect to see you every three months at
an Avenue Healthcare clinic near you. Together with you, we
will

  • Analyze the data in your health diary.
  • Adjust or change your medication if necessary.
  • Develop new healthy ideas for your daily life.

You will be able to discuss your progress with our doctors,
ask questions, address any complications, and decide which
treatment goals you want to reach before your next
appointment.

Knowledge

A disease or medical condition is usually less daunting the more we know about it. That’s why the knowledge section of our guide provides information on topics such as the various types of blood pressure medications (antihypertensives) and the differences between optimal, normal and high normal blood pressure. Our Guide will teach you step-by-step through what you can do to stay healthy in the long term and manage your high blood pressure.

Nutrition

A healthy diet is one cornerstone of hypertension management. This program will show you that when it comes to treating high blood pressure is not all about banning certain foods. It’s about choosing foods wisely: Learn about what’s called the DASH diet. You’ll be surprised at how delicious a balanced, high-fiber, plant-based diet can be!

Physical activity

Benefit from the healing power of exercise. Physical activity can help you lose weight, reduce stress, and improve your blood pressure. About 20 minutes of exercise a day is ideal. Too much for you? No way! The program shows you how to improve slowly and stay motivated.

Relaxation

Relaxation is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Breathing exercises are an easy-to-learn way to manage stress. Therefore, you will find some in the program. A good night’s sleep also contributes to daily relaxation. We will explain the best ways to relax in the evening and wake up well rested in the morning. This is important because stress is a risk factor for diabetes and hypertension.

Logging of data

You can use the Curalie app to log your vital data and activity quickly and easily, so you can keep tabs on a range of values, such as your blood sugar levels, at all times. At the same time, your doctor can access these values at any time, which also helps support your treatment.
