Consumers in Sweden can now subscribe to Brighter’s diabetes care service Actiste®
Brighter’s Actiste® service, for people living with insulin-treated diabetes, is now available to consumers in Sweden. Customers can sign up for a subscription directly at the Actiste website. Brighter is also currently introducing Actiste in the Middle East and Southeast Asia.
“This is a special moment for us at Brighter, as Sweden is our home market and this is where our journey towards improving everyday life for people living with diabetes began.

The Benefit Loop
Brighter's service safely enables the automatic collection of and feedback on user-generated treatment and health data. This kind of feedback loop is crucial in the effective treatment of diabetes.
Studies* show that over 50 percent of chronically-ill patients treat themselves incorrectly or cease their treatment completely. Without regular and reliable information about their patients' blood glucose values, insulin doses, meals and exercise, caregivers may have an incomplete understanding of the patient's actual health status, and limited insight into how recommended treatment guidelines are being followed. This may mean that the treatment becomes ineffective and the risk of the patient developing complications increases.
