|What problem are you solving?||Type 2 diabetes is a problem that will soon affect over a billion people. Fortunately enough, research shows that with the proper lifestyle changes, for many people it can be reverted. However, changing our lifestyles is not easy; it requires knowledge, motivation, guidance, effort and personal investment.We have built Suggestic following the idea of personalized lifestyle GPS, to help you navigate a plan created around your specific needs. We want to remove the stress and complications of following a lifestyle program by giving you actionable suggestions at the right moment and in the right place.|
The common scenario is that you have an appointment with your diabetes educator, nutritionist, coach or physician and you come up with a pile of printouts, brochures, rules and homework. Then you need to memorize all those and walk around with notes and books as you start figuring out how to go about it and as the days pass, you start questioning how to apply this to your particular life. Moreover, all that is assuming you understood it and you actually want to follow it.
We all need help navigating a new lifestyle, so we created Suggestic to help us do exactly that.
|What is your solution?||Suggestic is a digital help startup trying to tackle type 2 diabetes using machine learning to create personalized interventions and guide users through them towards disease reversal.Our Lifestyle GPS app works as a personal assistant to help people with diabetes navigate towards a healthier lifestyle.
