One Drop | Experts: Diabetes Support at Your Fingertips

Experts Program
People with diabetes and pre-diabetes around the world use One Drop | Mobile -- our free iPhone, Apple Watch, and Android app. Last week we released our One Drop | Experts program. Now, users can get access to a certified diabetes educator for 24/7 information, tips, and support. People who've used One Drop | Experts are experiencing real results! How do we know? Users and experts tell us, and our data speaks for itself. We're rigorously evaluating what we do to understand its impact. Here's what we're learning from people like Paul.

Paul's diabetes journey before One Drop

When Paul was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, his doctor gave him a prescription and very little advice. Paul took his medication without knowing if they helped, and tried to eat healthy without knowing what that meant. Then he lost his job, and emotionally ate to deal with his stress and lack of confidence. Paul's diabetes took a back seat — until he discovered One Drop. We invited people like Paul to try One Drop | Mobile and One Drop | Experts for the past three months. Here's what happened. Experts Program - Professional

People tracking food and blood glucose with One Drop | Mobile and One Drop | Experts:

  • Reduced their average blood glucose reading by 15% (27 mg/dL)
  • Lowered their average blood glucose from 185 mg/dL (A1c 8.1%) to 158 mg/dL (A1c 7.1%)
  • Reduced their average percentage of high blood glucose readings from 18.5% to 3.7%
  • Increased their average number of in-range blood glucose readings from 8.4 in range to 13.6 in range —i.e., they achieved 40% more in-range readings

Paul's journey with One Drop

Which brings us back to Paul, and a lot of people like him.
  • Paul’s learned more about diabetes in the last three months than in the last six years since his diagnosis.
  • He knows what to eat and is walking 7,500 steps a day most days.
  • His blood glucose is improving, and his energy is too.
  • He attributes One Drop and his expert’s support and guidance to his success
This support and guidance is now available for you! A few days ago, we launched One Drop | Premium. Premium is our subscription service that includes our FDA-approved One Drop | Chrome glucose meter with unlimited test strips and seamless connectivity to our app, bundled with One Drop | Experts. According to user stories and data, One Drop | Experts is changing people's lives for the better. Bundled with our meter, One Drop | Premium is positioned to be a game-changer around the globe.
