SRL Diagnostics launches ‘Sugar Trendz’ to monitor sugar levels

Chandigarh, 20th February, 2017: SRL Diagnostics, a leading diagnostic chain in India launches a unique technique/feature – ‘Sugar Trendz’ through which one can easily track and monitor their blood sugar level. This exclusive report by SRL, is a graphical representation of the blood glucose test result done by the brand. Through this, one can observe the impact of diet, exercise and medication over a period which will help in managing the sugar levels.

Blood sugar levels can vary due to lot of factors including periods of illness or infection, stress, gaining significant weight in short period of time, medication, unhealthy eating habits, alcohol etc.
Over the period of time SRL Diagnosis has observed it is very difficult for patients to remember the last sugar level. Considering such erratic life style of customer, SRL diagnostics has developed a unique technology which will allow them to know what kind of lifestyle helped them to maintain the blood glucose control.

Dr. Deepa Dave, Director – Operations SRL Labs says of SRL said “We all are aware about the importance of tracking sugar level regularly especially for diabetic patients.  The key to optimally manage our blood glucose levels within a specific range is by being aware of the fluctuation in the blood sugar. This new Sugar Trendz aids in easy management of diabetes by spotting the trends, enabling the patients to take active role in stabilising his/her own blood glucose. This service will also allow them to closely monitor their sugar level and make changes in their lifestyle.”

There are a significant number of factors that can cause the change in sugar levels. Making notes of when exercise was done, when an unplanned snack was consumed, when meals were missed/ delayed or when one was ill can be very helpful for making sense of the trend. Sugar Trendz helps spot patterns in the blood glucose results in a single report. It allows checking whether the sugar levels have been able to return back to normal and helps in understanding about diabetes management.
