In this tech-healthy age but life-unhealthy era, people have several diseases. Diabetes is one of the biggest threats these days. According to doctors, hypertension and diabetes are the biggest killers of this age. All this is due to unhealthy lifestyles and food adulteration. People usually suffer from these diseases due to genetic problems, due to food, lack of exercise, and even stress.
Whatever the reasons, patients need to check their blood pressure and sugar levels regularly. Going to the hospital, or clinic from time to time can be tiring and expensive. Sometimes it can be very hard for patients to go to health posts or hospitals due to location and other problems too.
