About us

Digostics is dedicated to the prevention of diabetes and cardiovascular disease and to reducing the serious consequences of these conditions, through a unique approach to home diagnostics.

Our wireless diagnostics platform combines disposable electronic tests, mobile apps and the cloud to enable new services to help patients and healthcare providers work together to prevent disease.

Our groundbreaking first product - GTT@home - allows patients to perform an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) conveniently at home, with the test results viewable confidentially for the healthcare professional to interpret. GTT@home is the only product that provides a home-based alternative to clinic-based OGTT.

GTT@home has equivalent performance to clinical laboratory based OGTT; the more commonly used fasting glucose and HbA1c tests are significantly less sensitive and less specific, leading to widespread missed cases and false diagnoses.

GTT@home aims to transform the detection of prediabetes and all forms of diabetes by enabling access to the most effective test.

Recommended tests for diabetes

Oral Glucose Tolerance Test

OGTT is generally referred to as the gold standard test for all forms of diabetes. It is the most sensitive and specific test for glucose intolerance, the only test recommended for gestational diabetes and the preferred test for diabetes in certain medical settings, including cystic fibrosis and organ transplantation.

OGTT measures the body's ability to use glucose, the body's main source of energy. Diabetes impairs the body’s ability to correctly use sugar, leading to glucose intolerance.

Following an overnight fast, glucose levels are measured before and after consumption of a drink containing glucose.

GTT@home

Laboratory Performance in a Home Test

The Digostics GTT@home test kit contains everything needed to perform an OGTT procedure without training and with no need for additional equipment.

The test works in conjunction with a glucose load, typically a drink containing 75g of glucose.

At the heart of the GTT@home kit is the unique Digostics electronic test device.

GTT@home is designed to be used by patients easily at home but it can also be also used in a non-clinical community setting with the oversight of a trained nurse or assistant. In trials GTT@home has proven very easy to use, with high approval ratings.
