The scientific approach applied at mySugr, be it diabetology, algorithms or psychology, is aimed at improving the lives of people with diabetes. Together with partners across the globe, we explore and communicate the impact of mySugr as well as new ways to make diabetes suck less.
After only 6 months of using the mySugr app, the occurrence of low blood sugars significantly decreased for people at risk of hypoglycemia. The LBGI (Low Blood Glucose Index), which indicates how often and severe low blood glucose events appear, was reduced by 17,4% during the time of monitoring¹.
The effect of continuous documentation with the mySugr app was analyzed through a retrospective observational study. The anonymized data of 440 active users was observed. After only one month, the estimated HbA1c of this group dropped from an average of 9% to 7,8%. Six months later, the estimated HbA1c decreased to 7,7%².
We explored real-world changes in blood glucose parameters in a randomly selected population of mySugr Bundle users in the US. Significant improvements were observed in mean blood glucose (-10.4%), tests in range (+8.5%) and eHbA1c (-0.4%) only two months after initiation of the mySugr Bundle³. After four months, we were still able to see a sustainable improvement in blood glucose control (BGmean -11.8 mg/dl, tests in range +6.8% and eHbA1c -0.41%)⁴.
A survey among 600 users showed that utilizing the mySugr app can lead to greater comprehension of autoimmune disease and to an increased assertiveness when it comes to important therapeutic decisions.⁵
