DIABETES TODAY

One in ten people in the world (450 Million) and 11 Million in Turkey have diabetes.

The medical industry is not winning against this epidemic. Ninety out of 100 diabetics have high blood sugars, 1:5 develop severe complications. Diabetes is still the number one cause of blindness worldwide. All these lead to draining an average of 13% of healthcare budgets globally and 23% in Turkey. Governments, insurance and pharma companies are in search of solutions for cost reduction to be scaled to large communities for their loses.

The International Diabetes Federation in search of support forces, has declared main theme of 2018-19 as “family and diabetes”.

BARRIERS TO SELF-MANAGEMENT

  • Time allocated to explain treatment details is 3.5 minutes whereas a diabetic's user manual is hundreds of pages long. %50 do not know the normals for blood sugar, %90 have not received foot care education. Treatment noncompliance is %70.
  • Only one in five recommendations is remembered just 30 minutes after a visit. We forget %90 of what we hear after a week and half of whatever remains in the mind is wrong. On the other hand, a diabetic makes 121 diabetes related decisions every day and has 1500 tasks to remember and complete in one year.
  • Average visit time is 7 minutes. Time spent with the doctor in one year is 30 minutes. At other times the diabetic struggles alone and the family does not know how to support. Almost %50 want to help more but only %16 are given education. Finally, there is still no mobile app in the stores for use of the family member.
  • Majority of patients and family members are unaware of mobile health apps (%60-90).
