Mr. Tan Kay Hock, 58
Type 2 Diabetes

During an exercise session, Mr. Tan Kay Hock told his physiologist that he had been frequently urinating during the night, and having bouts of thirst throughout the day. Suspecting that Mr. Tan had diabetes, his physiologist did a glucose test for him using ONETOUCH and discovered that his sugar level was unusually high. He was immediately referred to the doctor and was subsequently diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.

"Initially, I was mentally unprepared to accept that I had diabetes. I was very scared and worried, " the middle-aged Singaporean confided, "but I kept on telling myself that I was strong enough and that my life will go back to normal".

Coming to terms with diabetes, Mr. Tan started to acquire information about it. "My dietician gave me advice on what to eat, how to control it and how to overcome the situation." He started maintaining a healthy diet and exercising regularly.

Mr. Tan also monitors his glucose levels daily to keep himself up to date with his blood sugar level, especially when he feels a pinch of discomfort. To facilitate these daily tests, he bought ONETOUCH HORIZON, which he finds affordable, portable and efficient.

"This device helps me put my mind at ease, especially when I'm not at home," he said. "It has become a friend I can depend on, and I can bring it with me wherever I go."

Mr. Tan acknowledges the new challenges that he faces, but does not think that it will change his lifestyle in any significant way. "Basically it's the same except it's a bit inconvenient in some situations, especially when I am on holiday I will have to watch my sleeping hours and diet to regulate my sugar level."

Mr. Tan was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes two months ago, and has been using ONETOUCH HORIZON ever since.
