Clinical Impact of Hedia

We continuously conduct research and scientific studies to ensure that we are always striving to improve life with diabetes.

For an example of how Hedia could help, we’ve summarised the results from a retrospective study conducted among our users in 2020. These show the potential positive outcomes for those using Hedia Diabetes Assistant: a general greater control of blood glucose levels.

Estimated A1c

Hedia users experience significant improvements after 12 weeks of using Hedia. Lower A1c indicates increasing control of blood glucose over time.

Estimated Time-In-Range

Hedia users increase their estimated time-in-range over 12 weeks. Time-in-range shows the percentage of time in which a person is within their blood glucose target range.

Methods

A real-world study investigated changes in blood glucose control in people with type 1 diabetes after 12 weeks use of Hedia Diabetes Assistant. The dataset consisted of anonymised data from 234 engaged users, who had logged 10 or more blood glucose values per week for 12 weeks. The study looked into both the users as a whole, as well as a specific group of 84 users who had an estimated A1c of 7.9% or higher in their first week of using Hedia Diabetes Assistant.

Estimated A1c %

A decrease of 0.78% was detected in the group of more poorly controlled users. A slight decrease in eA1c was detected in the group as a whole, over the 12 weeks.

How was the A1c estimated? A user enters their blood glucose levels into Hedia; over time, Hedia is able to find the average of those blood glucose levels. From this, we can get the “eA1c”: the estimated A1c.

Estimated
Time-In-Range %

For the 84 users who initially had less blood glucose control, we found a 12.35% improvement in estimated time-in-range after 12 weeks use of Hedia. Across all users, we saw a 2% average increase in time-in-range in 12 weeks use of Hedia Diabetes Assistant. This may indicate that Hedia contributes to maintaining a well-controlled blood glucose level.
The range that we looked at was a blood glucose level between 3.9 and 10 mmol/L. This gave us the estimated time-in-range: the proportion of blood glucose measurements within that range.

Hedia Diabetes Assistant for all

Often, a digital divide might present itself between different groups of people. This study, however, is notably absent of any such digital divide regarding gender and age.

In other words, a person’s gender or age made no particular difference to the results: the same benefits appeared for all groups. This study showed Hedia Diabetes Assistant catering for all, regardless of whether male, female, young, or old.
