The Health Bank (THB) launches Diabetes Management Program on World Health Day

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, April 14, 2021: Following a successful pilot program earlier this year, The health bank (THB) has announced the launch of the Diabetes Connected Care program. The program, available to all individuals in the UAE living with a Type 2 Diabetes diagnosis, supports the day-to-day management of diabetes, and related complications.

Combining innovation with personalized care, the program follows the International Diabetes Federation guidelines, using state-of-the-art technology including Continuous Glucose Monitor by Medtronic and smart glucometer by iHealth and Contour.

Zarmina Jafar, THB Co-founder, and Strategy Director said: “Quite often, a diagnosis of diabetes can be overwhelming, and the issue can be compounded when tasked to adhere to a care plan and manage a busy lifestyle. Lack of knowledge, understanding, and motivation can greatly affect how well the condition is managed and can increase the severity and reduce the overall quality of life. By combining personalized care and using innovative remote monitoring devices, we aim to effectively manage diabetes, and prevent complications”.

The Connected Care program manages individuals at every stage of diabetes and, in some cases, program intervention can delay the progression of the disease if the patient successfully engages during prediabetic or early-stage diabetes.

THB also offers lifestyle management programs that encourage a healthy and proactive lifestyle. This involves monitoring health data, assessing nutritional advice and accessing motivational support. THB Clinicians are ideally placed to recognize the trends and patterns through continuous monitoring and can offer nudges, reminders, and alerts as and when needed.

THB Global aims to roll the program out across the region to create a meaningful impact on the growing global epidemic of diabetes. The Connected Care programs complement existing and traditional models of healthcare by combining innovative practices to fill in the gaps and reduce the burden of high treatment costs on the governments.
