During National Diabetes Month, Lark Health Supports National Effort to Raise Awareness of Prediabetes

Leading health organizations are partnering this World Diabetes Day to raise awareness that more than 1 in 3 American adults has prediabetes, a serious condition that increases their risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart attack, and stroke. Despite its prevalence, nearly 90% of people with prediabetes don't know they have it, and awareness is crucial since prediabetes can be reversed through lifestyle changes such as healthy eating and increased physical activity. November is National Diabetes Month, which means now is a better time than ever to consult a doctor, a local office, or a CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program about how to reverse prediabetes.

Julia Hu, CEO and co-founder of Mountain View, Calif.-based mobile AI chronic condition coaching and nursing platform Lark, said the company's performance-only billing model and affordability offer payers and providers incentive to deploy the text messaging service and covered users the incentive to use it: "Not everyone owns a computer, but almost everyone has some sort of smartphone now," she said. "We work to make sure all the low-power sensors on these phones were completely integrated with our AI nurse such that the Lark coach can pull data from sensors on devices ranging from $10 phones to the iPhone, and provide coaching based on that."
