Diabetes Guide

More than blood sugar control

Being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes has a big impact on people’s lives. Many comfortable habits come under scrutiny and need to change fundamentally. In this special situation, education and information can be very helpful – ideally right in a person’s everyday life.

This 12-month program provides broad background knowledge on the causes and effects of diabetes and offers tips for how people with diabetes can manage the condition most effectively every day. Developed with medical experts and aligned to the specific needs of patients with type 2 diabetes.

Understanding

The program offers important guidance with help from easily understandable, reliable information, along with concrete tips for living with high blood pressure (hypertension) and better self-management.

Nutrition

Eating a healthy diet is the cornerstone of treatment for high blood pressure. The Hypertension Guide features targeted information intended to prompt people to eat a varied and balanced diet. The focus is not on counting calories, but on choosing foods wisely.

Physical activity

Benefit from the healing power of exercise. Physical activity can help to lose weight, reduce stress, and improve blood pressure levels. About 20 minutes of exercise a day is ideal. The program helps patients improve slowly while staying motivated for the long term.

Relaxation

Relaxation is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, which also makes it an important element of this multi-modal program. Different relaxation techniques, such as breathing exercises, can help cope with stress.

Logging of data

With Curalie, users can document their vital data, activity, and medications on a regular basis. That helps you and the patient keep tabs on all of these values at all times.
