T2 diabetes leads to health emergencies and severe complications if not effectively managed, including blindness, kidney failure, heart attacks, stroke and lower limb amputation. However, diabetes-related complications can potentially be postponed or avoided if detected and managed early. As the condition progresses, the management needs of T2 diabetes evolve.
Medical technologies can play an important role in supporting people with T2 diabetes and their care teams throughout the management journey. Better management leads to better health outcomes, higher quality of life, and reduced strains on health systems and wider societal structures.
