Key Takeaways:

  • Early detection is key, especially when it comes to diabetes. The further into diabetes that you progress, the fewer options you have, and the worse your trade offs become. 
  • With January.ai, you’re able to make better decisions about what you eat and what you purchase for yourself, giving you more control to still eat what you want to eat.
  • AI has a huge role in bringing access to people who don’t have it today because they can’t afford this phenomenal tech.
  • Keep asking why and you will come up with the answers. The earlier you catch things, the more you know about your health, the more you can self-advocate, and the better your chances are of preventing disease further down the road.
