Hello there, we are brothers Klemen and Luka. We are researchers in the field of biomedicine and regenerative medicine and together we founded Easycarb in November 2013.
We were both involved with diabetes as part of our academic pursuits, which led us to develop a mutual interest for the disease. We soon started focusing our efforts towards diabetes research and helping out people who live with the disease. We participated in various workshops and courses about diabetes management as volunteers, where we got the opportunity to talk with patients and listen to the challenges they face every day. It was not long until we realized that something was very wrong with the current standard for managing nutrition in diabetes. This process is crucial for maintaining short-term and long-term health of the patients, yet it is extremely outdated and inaccurate, and had remained virtually unchanged for decades.
As researchers, we always relied on scientific fact for the work we did. When several major studies and clinical trials on diabetes reveled the importance of good blood sugar control and nutrition management, there was no more doubt in our minds. We needed to modernize the way the process was being performed and make it simple and effective, so everyone could do it. We wanted to make a change, and so the Easycarb project was born.
Soon after, we started looking for people who would join our cause and help us reach our vision of a better world for all people with diabetes. We were fortunate to find that many shared our vision. Today, we form a team of interdisciplinary experts united by a single mission – to revolutionize the way diabetes is being managed.
