Oct 29, 2009 (09:10 AM EDT)


MUMBAI, India, October 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The launch of latest diabetes healthcare web-portal http://www.cheenykum.com allows an individual to access sugar levels and diabetic statistics and share this information with their doctor, family and friends, hence a means to track dangerous trends and a relevant lifestyle & diabetic health management tool.

The initiative has been undertaken as India, with over 50 million diabetics is currently the Diabetes Capital of the World and can reach alarming figures by 2025. An early onset of diabetes has maximum impact on children, hence affecting the future health of our nation. A hereditary disease like diabetes, if unchecked, can lead to serious complications such as kidney failure, lower limb amputations, blindness, heart disease, strokes and nerve damage.

'Cheeny Kum' (which literally means 'less sugar'),is a real-time monitoring and comprehensive management program for diabetes .The program enables you to easily input your daily blood sugar levels with a mobile phone, email or web-browser. You then receive advice for diet and physical activity from your personal diabetes educator via sms or voice calls. Sometimes, if your sugar levels are dangerously high or low, the program alerts your doctor, thus facilitating an informed decision for proper medical management.

"If your blood sugar is high today, it needs to be controlled today", said Dr. Vyankatesh Shivane (Diabetologist), at a patient education program conducted in South Mumbai recently. With Cheeny Kum, whether at home, on the road or in the office, your sugar, medications, diet & physical activity are managed in real-time, which is the key to managing diabetes and preventing its life-altering complications.

If you're a diabetic or at high risk of diabetes, you can opt for a personalized Cheeny Kum Plan, offered to you at an affordable pre-fixed cost. Moreover, with Cheeny Kum's doorstep services, there's no need to go anywhere for glucometers and test strips, medications and lab tests.

India being a low cost provider, offers the best resource centers for diabetes research studies. "Cheeny Kum has proven to be a quick and effective tool for patient pooling and study management for diabetes clinical trials", says Dr. Viral Shah, Director of Mumbai-based Spectrum Clinical Research, after contracting Cheeny Kum's organized care services for a global insulin study.

"Our goal is to provide all stakeholders, i.e. patients, doctors, authorized healthcare professionals, caregivers and even patients' family with a simple & easy-to-use solution that maximizes their benefits", comments, Dr. Ankit Khambhati, the program Director.
