Assessment of the Impact of a Personalised Nutrition Intervention in Impaired Glucose Regulation

Researchers at Imperial College London would like to recruit people over 18 years of age with prediabetes to take part in a study testing a new type of diet. They're aiming to find out if a diet tailored to an individual's unique genetic makeup - known as a DNA-based diet - can improve blood sugar levels, and potentially prevent people progressing to type 2 diabetes. 
 
Volunteers will be allocated to either receive DNA-based dietary guidelines via the DnaNudge App and a wearable wristband, or via a dietitian, or to receive the current standard dietary advice given to people at high risk of type 2 diabetes, over a period of 26 weeks.
 
You need to have access to a smartphone with version iOS 8.0 or above, or Android 4.0 or above, to take part.
