What exactly is diabetes?
Diabetes is another word for diabetes mellitus. With diabetes, your body no longer manages to keep your blood sugars at a good level. That’s because the hormone insulin doesn’t work properly. Too much sugar (or glucose) remains in your blood. And that’s unhealthy for you.
How do your blood sugars work?
Your blood sugar level is the amount of glucose (or sugar) in your blood. Every time you eat or drink something with carbohydrates, for example bread, fruit or soft drinks, the amount rises in your blood sugar levels. In response, your body produces insulin. This hormone allows the glucose to be absorbed into your cells for energy. This will lower your blood sugar levels back to normal. But if you have diabetes, your blood sugar levels remain too high.
Why is diabetes unhealthy for you?
Diabetes causes annoying ailments. As always being hungry, tired, gaining weight and temporarily losing sight. Diabetes can also cause serious health problems over time. Think of permanent damage to your eyes, feet, kidneys, heart and blood vessels.
What can you do about type 2 diabetes?
Fortunately, you can take steps yourself to tackle or prevent type 2 diabetes. With small adjustments in your diet and daily habits you can lower your blood sugar. That is possible without drugs. It is important to know exactly what works best for your body. Clear.bio helps you with that!
Stable blood sugar levels are important for proper health. This applies to everyone and in particular to people with type 2 diabetes.
The fluctuations in your blood sugar levels depend on factors such as your DNA, physical condition, amount of stress, lifestyle, when you eat and of course what you eat. The reaction of your blood sugar levels are therefore unique. That’s why it’s so important to get personalized advice if you’ve been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes or are at increased risk.
The Clear.bio treatment maps your diet and the unique reaction of your blood sugar level. We do this with the help of a blood glucose sensor and the Clear.bio app. This way we can explain exactly what you can do to improve your health. With our treatment you can achieve big results with small changes!
“Scientific research has shown that there is no ideal diet that works for everyone. What does work is the ideal diet for you as an individual. Clear.bio helps people, by measuring reactions of their blood sugar levels, to discover which dietary habits are best for them. I highly recommend that.”
Georges Janssens – Professor of Amsterdam UMC

Especially in the initial stage (prediabetes or newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes), it is quite possible to move away from medication. Many prescription medications postpone conditions. But this doesn’t mean you can’t stop taking medication. With Clear.bio you can make small, smart adjustments to your lifestyle without medication.
No. Applying the sensor is done with the help of an applicator needle. It does not stay in your arm. The sensor contains a small flexible needle (filament) that measures your blood sugar levels. Most participants do not experience pain after placing the sensor. Sometimes there is a slight pain palpable in the first hour, which quickly disappears.
The DVN (Dutch Diabetes Association) has been standing up for the interests of diabetes patients in the Netherlands for more than 75 years. Being in control and doing at home what you can do at home are important themes. That’s where DVN and Clear find each other. This is in line with the movement in healthcare towards Appropriate Care & Right Care in the Right Place, which the government and also various health insurers are focused on. Through this collaboration we try to reach and help as many people as possible with type 2 diabetes and prediabetes.
Clear.bio offers nutrition based treatments and are therefore not medical treatments based on medication. We do not give advice on adjusting medication. If you would like to make adjustments to the medication yourself, we advise you to discuss this with your GP, diabetes nurse or your other medical professional.
I developed type 2 diabetes during my time as an entrepreneur. I was busy busy busy. I didn’t take enough time to eat healthy and exercise. Due to stress, I rewarded myself with good food.
