Inactive ‘stay at home’ lifestyle and bad eating habits can increase health risks
(Singapore, January 18, 2022) – Singapore brand BUZUD today announced the introduction of its latest range of patented blood glucometers and blood pressure monitors using the latest technology.
Mr. Frankie Fan, Founder, CEO and CTO of BUZUD, Fosun Trade Medical Devices, shared, “The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many Singapore residents to adopt a sedentary and unhealthy lifestyle. This has heightened the risk of developing diseases such as diabetes, obesity and hypertension.”
War Against Diabetes
“Tackling diabetes is a major priority for Singapore. One in three Singaporeans can expect to develop diabetes in their lifetimes, impairing the quality of life in later years” said PM Lee Hsien Loong in his address on 15 April 2021 in conjunction with the launch of the WHO (World Health Organisation) Global Diabetes Compact.
By 2030, the number of Singapore residents above 40 with diabetes is projected to increase by 50%. It is therefore crucial take steps to prevent developing diabetes due to the lack of a cure.
Although diabetes does not appear as a top cause of death, many cases of heart attacks, strokes and kidney failures are traced back to diabetes. Furthermore, diabetes also complicates the treatment of many other diseases, including COVID-19.
Blood sugar testing is an important part of diabetes care
Measuring your blood glucose is important in managing diabetes and preventing complications. This can be done at home with a portable electronic device called a blood glucometer. It is commonly known as a glucose meter or monitor.
BUZUD’s blood glucometer has the most sensitive sensor using the latest technology
BUZUD has developed three models of blood glucometers that have been approved by the health authorities in several countries:
- Gold AQ Plus
The Gold AQ Plus blood glucometer has the most sensitive sensor, is stable, has strong anti-interference and a wide HTC range.
- Safe AQ AirThe BUZUD Safe AQ Air blood glucometer connects to a mobile app via Bluetooth. Testing takes just 5 seconds and is virtually pain free.
- Safe AQ Angel
The BUZUD Safe AQ Angel requires no coding. Testing takes just 5 seconds and is virtually pain free.
Importance of monitoring one’s blood pressure levels
More than one billion people worldwide have hypertension. This number is expected to reach 1.6 billion by 2025. The World Health Organization estimates that fewer than one in five have it under control.
Patients with prolonged periods of uncontrolled hypertension are at significantly increased risk of heart attack, stroke, heart and kidney failure, and premature mortality. Improvements in blood pressure translate into meaningful reductions in risk.
Having a blood pressure monitor at home comes in handy for the whole family. These two BUZUD blood pressure monitors can be purchased online or from BUZUD’s retail store:
