Fitterfly launches ‘Reimagining Diabetes Care Report 2022’

Based on a sample size of over 3000 people who enrolled into Fitterfly’s Diabetes Management programs, the report underscores the need to reimagine, rethink, and reassess diabetes before it reaches pandemic proportions.


Health-tech company Fitterfly working in the field of digital therapeutics (DTx) has released its year-end report called "Reimagining Diabetes Care Report 2022" for the period January 2022 to December 2022. Based on a sample size of over 3000 people who enrolled into Fitterfly’s Diabetes Management programs, the report underscores the need to reimagine, rethink, and reassess diabetes before it reaches pandemic proportions. It also endeavours to understand the missing link in the diabetes care circle.


One of the reasons why the numbers are exponentially increasing is the fact that type 2 diabetes is a complex phenomenon with multiple factors like nutrition, stress, fitness, sleep, and pain affecting the condition.


Some insights from the report:

  • The data shows that younger people are now seeking solutions for diabetes management. About 38 per cent of people with diabetes were in the 31 to 45-year category and about 5 per cent were below 30 years of age.

  • People from non-metros (45 per cent) were also more aware and were using new-age digital therapies for managing diabetes.

  • It was also found that there is a strong connection between obesity and diabetes with over 89 per cent of the people with this condition being overweight or obese. Of the respondents, 56 per cent either had hypertension or high cholesterol and 14 per cent had underlying conditions such as PCOS or hypothyroidism-all of which were a part of the metabolic syndrome.

  • As per the report, about 51 per cent of the respondents were diagnosed with diabetes in the last 5 years and are in the golden period of achieving remission. Even if half of all Indians diagnosed with diabetes are able to avoid medicines, it would have a direct impact on expenses as well as productivity.

  • Stress levels were higher among at least 63 per cent of the respondents in the age group of 18 to 30 years. While 58 per cent of this was due to an emotional burden, the remainder was due to the stress of managing diabetes (42 per cent) and physician distress (29 per cent). It is interesting to note that there was a progressive reduction after the age of 60 and only 28 per cent of respondents experienced elevated stress levels.
