In modern times and changing lifestyle, the number of people with diabetes has increased over the years. Monitoring Glucose levels regularly helps keep diabetes in check.
Gone are the days where patients had to go to their doctor to get blood glucose readings, today, patients do their own testing at home. Various products like Dario can help in glucose monitoring and diabetes management. Recently, it was recognized as a user-centric mHealth product that brings diabetes management into the digital age.
