Is there a market in India for portable fridge?

Type-2 diabetes, though a lifestyle disease, is difficult to cure or reverse completely. Metformin (biguanide) is a prescription drug widely used for diabetes management. This medicine controls blood sugar for years or decades.

Prolonged use of Metformin develops a medical condition called ‘insulin resistance’ where the body fails to recognize insulin which is essential to transform sugar to cells. Insulin resistance leads to sudden drop of energy, uncontrollable hunger etc. In this case patients are given Insulin vial.

India is becoming Diabetes Capital!

According to this 2019 Hindu report, India is home to 77 million diabetes patients (7.7 crore), the second highest in the world. The Times of India also reported that by 2045 India’s diabetes patient count would increase to 135 million (13.5 crore). This is a dangerous trend!

Obesity is easy to find (just check your bulging tummy), whereas diabetes don’t show any early symptoms. Even perfectly fit & slim person may develop diabetes. To prevent lifestyle diseases like obesity, high BP & Diabetes etc monitor your blood sugar regularly. See how to check your body fat percentage.

Insulin vials should be stored at a temperature of 2- 8°C. Unfortunately, millions of households in India don’t have refrigerator due to affordability issue. So, Godrej conducted good market research before launching Insulicool.

There are limited number of independent & verifiable reviews. However, few of the feedbacks given by customers appears to be positive and encouraging.
