Taking cardiometabolic diseases from inevitable to avoidable.
Type 2 diabetes is one of the largest pandemics in human history, with over 347 million people diagnosed worldwide.3 It is also one of the leading preventable causes of debilitating illness and death. The key to prevention is accurate risk identification and early intervention.
Unfortunately, traditional risk assessment tools have been inadequate, able to measure only one factor of a multi-factorial disease. As a result, the sheer number of people categorized as at-risk using conventional diagnostic measures has made it physically and economically impossible for physicians to provide focused, cost-effective intervention.
By utilizing more accurate risk assessment tools to identify high-risk patients, physicians can make more informed treatment decisions, and do more to motivate their patients to make enduring lifestyle changes. This proactive approach has the potential to save the over-burdened U.S. healthcare system hundreds of millions of dollars a year in treatment costs by helping patients avoid the expensive, often debilitating medical regimens required to effectively manage the disease.
Redefining the boundaries of diabetes prevention.
With the introduction of PreDx DRS, Tethys has rewritten the rule book in the fight against diabetes:
Providing an unprecedented degree of insight into the distinct disease pathophysiology of each patient, PreDx DRS reveals those patients at highest risk for disease conversion. Armed with this knowledge, physicians can focus their time and energy on the patients who will benefit most from early and aggressive intervention strategies that can potentially derail the disease process.
Ranking a patient’s personalized risk status on a scale of 1 (lower risk) to 10 (highest risk) provides clinicians with a powerful tool to break through a critical communication barrier based on patient resistance, indifference and fear.
This “teachable moment” enables physicians to more effectively educate patients and motivate them to adopt healthy behaviors and make lifestyle changes that can reduce their risk for the disease.
