Living with Type 1 diabetes is a reality for over 9 million people worldwide, marking a complex journey towards effective diabetes management. This challenge is underscored by the intricate dance of glucose levels, influenced by numerous factors that intertwine in complex ways. For those navigating this condition, monitoring these variables is not just daunting; it represents a relentless pursuit of balance. The complexity of this task is heightened by the fact that, in the absence of crucial data, healthcare professionals often find themselves navigating in the dark, unable to offer nuanced advice. This reality has led to a diminished trust among many patients in the healthcare system's ability to support their diabetes journey effectively.

In response to this pressing need, enhance-d, a highly promising team with extensive experience in the field, has stepped forward as they encountered numerous diabetes patients in search of a viable solution to track these critical factors. As the winners of our Product Camp, Enhance-d posed a pivotal question, sparking the initiation of this important project:


“How can we rebuild trust between doctors and patients through an application?”




As we embarked on this project, we recognized the steep learning curve ahead of us and began wearing Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGMs) ourselves. This direct experience shed light on the challenges of pinpointing the causes of glucose fluctuations, even for those without diabetes, underscoring the necessity for a comprehensive tracking solution.

enhance-d's vision was clear from the start: to create a system that aggregates data from a variety of health monitoring devices, including CGMs, smartwatches, and food-tracking apps. This holistic approach would provide doctors with a comprehensive overview of a patient's health through generated insights, which would, in turn, facilitate more personalized and effective advice. On the patients, enhance-d acts as a supportive ally, simplifying diabetes management by leveraging insights from a broad spectrum of data.

Our partnership with enhance-d extended beyond the Product Camp. Motivated by their innovative approach, we invested in their pre-seed round and continued to refine the mobile app for patients and the dashboard for doctors. Our focus was to ensure that both platforms were not only informative but also user-friendly and positive, aiming to mitigate diabetes burnout.

The journey with enhance-d underscores the importance of merging detailed health data with thoughtful design and positive language. It's a testament to the commitment to making diabetes management less overwhelming and more empowering for millions of people around the world. As we advance, our dedication to enhancing the lives of those living with diabetes remains unwavering, fueled by the innovative solutions provided by enhance-d.

“Our experience with headbits has been fantastic. We like that they always pushed back and never assumed we had the correct answers because we have been working in the diabetes technology space longer than them. Their inputs and different perspectives have really helped to strengthen our product." ”
