Dario’s All-in-One Platform Makes Managing Diabetes and Weight an Achievable Goal

New research in the Journal of Internet Medicine (JMIR) shows that using Dario to manage weight along with diabetes can help lower blood glucose levels.

Why Managing Diabetes and Weight Together Matters

Did you know that more than 80% of people with Type 2 diabetes are also overweight? That’s why Dario’s platform helps you manage diabetes, pre-diabetes, blood pressure, weight, and even support for those taking a GLP-1—all in one spot. It’s like having a personalized health coach in your pocket, helping you make better choices about your health.

What the Study Found

The study looked at data from 966 Dario members over a year. Half of them were regular users of Dario’s weight monitoring feature, and the other half weren’t. After six months, those using the weight monitoring feature saw a signficiant ddrop in blood glucose levels and BMI. In fact, 85% of them had their blood glucose levels below the target A1c level of 9.0, compared to 76% of the group only using Dario for diabetes management.

What the Experts Say

“The reality for so many people living with Type 2 diabetes is that addressing weight is a critical factor in realizing meaningful clinical improvements. We set out to more clearly evaluate our intensive multidisciplinary approach showing how giving people one solution can lead to better diabetes outcomes and are thrilled to see the data demonstrates real clinical improvements from addressing these two conditions in one solution,” said Yifat Hershcovitz, PhD., Vice President of Clinical and Scientific Affairs at Dario.

“Type 2 diabetes and obesity share the same web of underlying health behaviors, and yet we often ask people to engage in multiple solutions to address these conditions separately. It adds undue burden to the behavior change process and can impede engagement on one or both conditions, which ultimately hurts outcomes. The results of this study show a clear benefit to having a single approach, and we are excited to continue adding evidence of the need for more integrated chronic condition solutions like Dario,” said Omar Manejwala, M.D., Chief Medical Officer.

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

The study was done in partnership with the Integrative Pain Laboratory at the School of Public Health at the University of Haifa. So, the bottom line is, using digital self-monitoring tools like Dario can really help improve patient outcomes and give you more control over your health.
