Janacare, are building an online diabetes prevention program (called the Habits Program) to enable pre-diabetics achieve healthier lifestyle habits and avoid full-blown type II diabetes.
As part of this effort, photokatha (@photokatha) is conducting an online experiment called ”Sugarscore“ to understand India’s Diabetes risk. Sugarscore is a six second survey that will help you understand your risk for Diabetes. The user basically goes to www.sugarscore.in and quickly answers five questions (age, gender, waist size, physical activity levels and family history of diabetes) to get his or her Sugarscore.
