Many people with diabetes must check their blood sugar up to ten times per day or more, particularly type 1 diabetics like Elliot Gatt, the founder of Good Glucos. Because of the frequency required, treatment compliance is an issue for many. Additionally, consistency in testing as well as accuracy of the test can make the difference between life and death. Good Glucos solves both of these challenges by providing highly accurate testing supplies on subscription. However, this is just the start of Good Glucos’ mission to provide end-to-end diabetes management for all.
When Alma and Evelyn’s son, Kalyan, was born they noticed irregularities with his skin and he was scratching to the point of injuring himself. After numerous trips to the pediatrician and being told everything was alright, Evelyn remembered Alma had been diagnosed a few months before with a milk allergy. She was inspired to take Kalyan to an allergist to be tested. Sure enough, it turned out that he was allergic to nearly twenty food items, and this marked the beginning of a period in his parents’ lives fraught with uncertainty, fear, and frustration.
