Diabetes Care

Monitoring diabetes: a global imperative

According to the World Health Organization, 9.3% of adults had diabetes in 2019, and it’s estimated to reach 10.9% by 2045 Type 2 diabetes makes up about 90% of all diabetes cases1.

In the US, 38 million people have diabetes (1 person out of 10) and about 98 million have prediabetes (1 out of 3).

Early identification of individuals at high risk for diabetes is crucial, both for slowing its progression and preventing complications.

Addressing complications with precision and innovation

Number 1

Cause of death in people with diabetes comes from cardiovascular diseases2

because of high risk of strokes, heart failure, atherosclerosis and arrhythmias.

One of the main risk factors of these complications is high blood pressure.

Up to 70%

of patients with diabetes will be affected by diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) in their lifetime

50% of them may be asymptomatic3.

Diabetic peripheral neuropathies are a crucial indicator of foot ulcer risk, yet there is a lack of reliable, non invasive, rapid, and easy to use tools to identify these neuropathies3,4.

At Withings Health Solutions, we’ve developed a suite of connected health devices to elevate care for patients with diabetes, including monitoring for those at risk for these complications.

Comparing Sudoscan & Withings Scale

Sudomotor dysfunction is one of the earliest manifestations of small fiber neuropathy (SFN), reflecting the alteration of sympathetic C fiber innervation of the sweat glands. The study compared Body Scan® (Withings scale, for home use) with Sudoscan® (Impeto Medical device, for clinical settings), by measuring the electrochemical skin conductance (ESC) at the feet to identify SFN.

 

Body Scan® proved to be just as effective as Sudoscan® in assessing sudomotor function, offering a convenient way for patients to conduct tests at home, and enhancing long-term autonomic nervous system monitoring.

Observing the Effects of Telehealth-Based health coaching

This study explored the transformative power of weekly telehealth coaching in the realm of weight management, presenting compelling evidence that such an approach not only significantly boosts adherence to remote monitoring devices but also facilitates a healthier rate of weight loss (RWL).

 

By comparing a fully online, medically monitored 12-week weight management program (including personalized health coaching) with a self-guided control group, the research uncovered the tangible benefits of integrating digital health tools with professional support. The findings revealed a notable difference in device adherence and RWL between the intervention and control groups, underscoring telehealth’s potential to revolutionize weight loss strategies.

Learn how our partnerships improve health outcomes

ADA’s Project Power Promoting Regular Foot Exams Using Withings Smart Scales

With the goal of promoting patient education on diabetic foot health, earlier detection of neuropathy, and regular diabetic foot exams, Withings has partnered with ADA’s Project Power to put smart scales in the homes of participants in particularly high-risk and vulnerable communities.

 

Project Power aims to reduce diabetes risk factors and improve diabetes health literacy, self-care behaviors, and glycemic control. This program is conducted with a combination of in-person and remote sessions focusing on topics such as nutrition, exercise, emotional health, heart health, glucose monitoring, and foot health.

Driving Weight Loss Through Improved Program Adherence and Operational Efficiency for a Diabetes Prevention Program

HabitNu teamed up with Withings Health Solutions to tackle the challenge of accurately tracking members’ weight loss, aiming for a 5% reduction per member. By integrating our Wi-Fi-based Body scale and Withings app into their program, HabitNu not only streamlined the data collection process — they also enhanced member engagement through the scales, sleek, inviting design and habit-forming features..

 

This collaboration led to a remarkable achievement in a year-long Diabetes Prevention Program, with 5% more weight loss among participants actively engaged with the Withings Body Scale.
