Wellthy Digital Diabetes Therapy trial is all set to prove the efficacy of its 16-week structured diabetes management programme delivered through a mobile app. The trial was launched by Past President of RSSDI, D Sarita Bajaj at the RSSDI Annual Conference in Bhubaneswar earlier this month. The outcome of this multi-center randomised control trial will be measured by the HbA1C levels of patients before and after the trial.

As part of the programme, personalised diabetes self-management education and real time coaching will be offered with an artificial intelligence powered chat bot, to engage and improve the health of patients with type 2 diabetes.

Commenting on the first-of-its-kind initiative, Abhishek Shah, Co-founder and CEO of Wellthy Therapeutics said: “We re-affirm our commitment to solve for the diabetes epidemic. Conducting a clinical trial on a mobile app is unprecedented in India and we are extremely optimistic about the study outcomes. While the app has already demonstrated its efficacy, the clinical trial conducted with the RSSDI will provide the evidence necessary to show that digital therapeutics have the potential to improve the lives of diabetes patients.”

Dr. Rajeev Chawla, President Elect of RSSDI said: “The need for digital interventions in diabetes care is more now than ever.  This trial holds tremendous potential in terms of changing outcomes for persons living with diabetes by making it easier for them to manage their blood sugar levels and improving their life.”
