Diabetes is characterized by chronic hyperglycaemia, that is, an excess of sugar in the blood. With 415M of people affected, 1 in 11 worldwide, diabetes is progressing rapidly. It is a major cause of blindness, kidney failure, heart disease, stroke, lower limb amputation and 1.5 million deaths per year.
Despite these risks, studies show that 80% of people on treatment do not monitor their diabetes enough and do not measure their blood glucose levels as many times as necessary, that is to say between four and ten times a day. Pain, Cumbersome, lack of time, difficulties of understanding are as much brake to a good monitoring of the blood sugar.
