Thyroid Dysfunction is a chronic disease that needs to take medication for long time. I know what patients say about vague anxieties over their disease status and medication they take. When patients visit the doctor’s office, they typically comment, “I feel tired these days, is my dosage wrong?”, “I can’t sleep well. Is it because of my thyroid condition?” and “I feel dizzy and uncomfortable in the evening. Is there anything wrong in my
medication?”. Thyroid disease have ambiguous symptoms such as unexplained fatigue, giddiness, moodiness or depression, muscle weakness. Those symptoms are hardly indicating a specific disease.
For this reason, patients often feel anxiety of whether thyroid hormone levels and dosage are actually appropriate when experiencing any ordinary symptoms which may or may not be related to thyroid conditions. When it happens, it’s hard for patients to visit doctor’s office and take a blood test every time, as it requires significant time and expenses.
Glandy is a mobile Healthcare App. for patients with thyroid dysfunction, which will systematically track your disease status daily and provide personalized self-care coaching to improve self-management based on the predicted risk level of your disease based on wearable devices.
Glandy was invented based on the results of the clinical researches led by the research team at the Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism at Seoul National University Bundang Hospital, which will continuously be improved through on-going follow-up researches.
We hopefully wish patients in the world would enjoy healthier daily life through Glandy without any vague anxiety about the thyroid dysfunction.
