Science & Research

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 mySugr is having as well as new ways and methods to make diabetes suck less.

Does it really work?

Fewer hypos thanks to the logbook

After only 6 months of using the mySugr app, the number of low blood sugars has significantly decreased for people at hypoglycemia risk1. 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 monitoring.

Reduction of eHbA1c with the help of our app

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%1.

Improved Glucose Control with our digital diabetes management

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 Bundle2. 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%)3.
