In 2019, our CEO Lorenna Feliz Santos experienced a 2nd diagnosis of Type One Diabetes amongst one of her three children. She had developed Caregiver syndrome in 2015 a few months after her oldest son was diagnosed, in 2019 it resurfaced.
The overwhelming hour-to-hour management, constant calculations, exhaustion, stress, and physical problems that surfaced created a difficult situation worse. It was during her time at the hospital, while her son was in Pediatric Intensive Care that she started to conceive the idea of a digital health solution that facilitated daily living, support, and access to critical information immediately. For months she researched what other digital health companies were doing and none offered a unified solution that facilitated hour-to-hour management, education, empowered people with Diabetes through self-care, provided access to needed resources, tools, support, and community.
In 2020, she launched DiaM Life Inc.
