Diabetes is a long-term illness that requires its patients to have daily lifestyle regulation for a lifetime. Globally, Malaysia is one of the countries with the highest number of diabetics that suffer from abnormal blood sugar levels.

The main challenge of this disease is undeniably the cost and required self-monitoring by the patients. American Diabetes Association reported that treatment alone for diabetic patient starts at RM71,000 annually.

As patients only have 3 to 5 visits to doctors a year, affordability and accessibility are the factors affecting diabetes self-monitoring after each meals.
