Many thanks to Docto for our fun interview, which can be found here. I enjoyed learning more about the Docto app, which uses algorithms to predict blood glucose levels an hour in advance (docto.me)! I believe there is great potential with this app not only in terms of physical health outcomes, but also in easing the emotional concerns that go hand-in-hand with diabetes.
Having detailed knowledge as to where my blood sugar might be headed an hour from now would allow me to make more informed insulin dosing decisions. It would also mitigate my anxiety in that the unknown, sometimes-scary diabetes stuff will become known before it even happens. Docto literally makes the unpredictable more predictable, which is music to my ears from a holistic diabetes management perspective.
Docto did not ask me to write this blog post, but I want to say it: I am impressed with Docto’s dedication to making diabetes management better for our community, as well as their genuine interest in learning more about the diabetes experience from those who live it firsthand. Our interview renewed my hope that the diabetes burden will become lighter for all of us in the future thanks to healthcare innovation and teams like Docto. I encourage readers to visit docto.me to learn more.
