A balance is about to be set between the in-person and the virtual appointments. Also, it has been easier with the introduction of the self-monitoring tools.

As per the reports, the Government of Saudi Arabia and the UAE is experiencing a growth in the incidence of diabetes. The gulf countries are about to become the home for some of the highest rates for the condition in the world.

Online telemedicine not only plays a very important role, but also it is very cost-effective. It is time-efficient also.
