Jay: 15kg weight loss and HbA1c of 5.1%

We are proud to share some words from Jay (age 46), who was one of our early GlycoLeap users. After 6 months on GlycoLeap, Jay has successfully reduced his weight by 16kg (14% of his initial weight), and has reduced his HbA1c from 8.9% to 5.1%.

From Jay:

“I am a Type 2 Diabetic and have been diagnosed for more than a decade. I have never followed through on the treatments and the fact that I felt that I was still young and will not affect me until I am older, I was so wrong here. A couple of months ago, after an eye examination, I was told that the nerves around my eyes have been damaged by my diabetes. It was caused because of uncontrolled sugar levels although I have been on medication for a few years.

At this point, I realized that if I do not take control of by diabetes, I might never see my children grow up. I finally woke up and decided I needed to do something about it.

I was searching online when I stumbled onto their website, a Singapore company called GlycoLeap, and was actually surprise that there is a local company providing these services. Their approach is about behavioural change where they provide support and education on what diabetes is and what one can do to face diabetes. So I decided to give it a try and it was the best decision I have ever made for my health.

How GlycoLeap helped

GlycoLeap has helped me to understand and deal with my diabetes with confidence now that I know how to live with it. In fact, without their support, I could not have done this alone.

The personalized approach from their great team of dietitians, psychologist and medical officer has help me to understand how our local cuisines affect my sugar levels. In fact, I am still enjoying my favourite unhealthy dishes but of course now I have to balance it out.

I eat much healthier now and I am very aware of what foods affect my sugar levels. They also provide the necessary tools needed for me to monitor my weight, sugar and activity levels.

This newfound understanding and support from GlycoLeap has helped me be more confident in dealing with my health. In fact, with just proper diet and a slightly more active lifestyle, I have managed to lose 16kg in 6 months and my sugar levels are now well maintained. I did not even need to go to the gym to sweat myself silly and most importantly, I do not need to starve myself. I just fill up with the proper food and the healthy snacks in between meals whenever I need it.

GlycoLeap is not a quick fix… it’s simply just the right fix.

Thank you to all at GlycoLeap for your support in my journey. I would especially like to thank Elizabeth, Hannah and Jasmine who have been with me through this whole time. The encouragements and knowledge I received has been invaluable and I really appreciate it.”
