(ProNewsReport Editorial):- New York City, New York Feb 14, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – The leading diabetes management app, Klinio, has announced the addition of two new clinicians to their medical board; Gary Scheiner – a certified diabetes educator – and Diana Isaacs – a clinical pharmacy specialist.

Klinio helps patients with diabetes manage their nutrition, workouts, metrics tracking, medication logging, and education. It’s like having a fully personalized diabetes coach on a smartphone at all times.

The independent organization, Validation Institute, recently analyzed patient data that found patients with type-2 diabetes who used Klinio for a minimum of 19 days over 2.5 months were twice as likely to reduce their absolute HbA1c value by 0.59 percent. A change of 0.5 is considered a meaningful change in a person’s health status and is accepted by the Food and Drug Administration.  

Dr. Kasparas Aleknaviius, who oversees medical affairs for Klinio, says the clinical knowledge and expertise that Scheiner and Isaacs bring will have an immediate impact on their consumer product and solutions experience.

“Gary and Diana are leaders in their respective areas of diabetes research and education,” said Aleknaviius. “Their combined professional experience will help our engineers, developers, and content creators provide a better experience on our mobile app. Our goal at Klinio is to create a diabetes management app that will help all patients manage their diabetes in a way that doesn’t interfere with their lives.”

Diana Isaacs – Clinical Pharmacy Specialist

Isaacs joined the Cleveland Clinic in 2016, where she continues to serve as an Endocrine Clinical Pharmacist and Remote Monitoring Program Coordinator. As a certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist, she holds board certifications in pharmacotherapy, ambulatory care, and advanced diabetes management. 

“I am thrilled to advise the Klinio board and team on the best practices and technologies in treating diabetes,” says Isaacs. “I’ve followed Klinio for years and watched how their product and solution has helped people around the globe better manage their conditions. I’m excited to see what the future holds for us as we take on diabetes as a team.” 

Isaacs earned a Bachelor of Chemistry from the University of Illinois and a Doctor of Pharmacy Degree from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. She also received the 2020 ADCES Diabetes Care and Education Specialist of the Year. 

Gary Scheiner – Certified Diabetes Care & Education Specialist 

Scheiner has dedicated more than 27 years to improving the lives of people with diabetes as the clinical director for Integrated Diabetes Services. The American Association of Diabetes Educators named him the 2014 Diabetes Educator of the Year. He’s also published six books on diabetes education, and is certified to train on all models of insulin pumps, continuous glucose monitors and hybrid closed loop systems. 

Scheiner earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Washington University in St. Louis and a Master of Science in Exercise Physiology from Benedictine University. He received diabetes training from the Joslin Diabetes Center. 

“I battle with type 1 diabetes myself, so I have a passion for helping others who battle this condition on a daily basis,” said Scheiner. “I’m looking forward to collaborating with other specialists from Klinio, and helping improve the lives of those facing diabetes.”

Klinio helps patients manage their diabetes by providing healthy recipes, nutrition advice, and tools to manage their glucose levels.
