Prediabetes – LUMC
Digital prevention: stop diabetes
The Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) wanted to address crucial needs of prediabetes patients. Enabling these patients to monitor the amount of fast carb they consume and giving them guidance on their food consumption, will help to prevent them from getting diabetes. This app provides them with scientifically validated feedback on how fast carbs will be digested and end up in their bloodstream as glucose.
