Success stories from Welldoc’s digital health app, BlueStar®

IMG 6765 1

Jesús, 66, discovered BlueStar* when he was diagnosed with diabetes. Symptom such as significant weight loss, frequent trips to the bathroom, and constant thirst led him to seek urgent medical attention. This discovery marked the beginning of his journey with diabetes.

Initially, Jesús felt confused and became depressed, even resorting to alcohol as a coping mechanism. Diabetes seemed like an impossible challenge, something he thought he wasn’t prepared to face. However, with proper medical care and a psychiatrist’s support, Jesús overcame those negative emotions and set himself on a path toward a better life.

BlueStar made a significant difference in Jesús’ diabetes management. This app became his ally, providing valuable information on carb consumption and tips for preparing healthy meals. Additionally, he started keeping a detailed diabetes journal, carefully recording his food intake and sugar levels.

“I like the program and use it to keep track of my diet and activity,” said Jesús. “When I see my blood sugar levels are high, I try to reduce calories but keep myself in check. I know what I should and should not eat every day.”

Consistently using BlueStar brought Jesús greater peace of mind and confidence in his treatment. His doctor visits became more productive since the physician received reports on his app usage and health data. His dedication and adherence to the regimen resulted in better diabetes control.

“I feel that I have much better control over diabetes now. Two years ago, my levels were always above 200, 225, 180 and wouldn’t come down,” he explained. “Now I’m more determined and focused on managing this condition because I know it’s very harmful.”

Jesús has shared his experience with family, friends, and clients at his barber shop. He takes pride in inspiring others and changing their perspective on the chronic conditio. He now feels secure and at ease, proving that diabetes doesn’t have to keep people from living a fulfilling life.

Jesús has a clear message for those seeking better ways to manage diabetes or any other chronic condition. He encourages everyone to be diligent in their health care, follow medical advice, and keep track of their progress. He also recommends considering apps like BlueStar, which offer practical information and tools for managing your health. Jesús has discovered that living a healthy life with diabetes is entirely possible, and he’s more than willing to share his knowledge with anyone in need.**
