Effectiveness of a novel salt monitor for reducing salt intake in participants with type 2 diabetes

Researchers at London Metropolitan University would like to invite people with type 2 diabetes to take part in a study that is raising awareness about dietary salt intake. The research hopes to raise awareness about sources of salt, estimate the average salt intake per day and inform people how they can modify their diet to improve their salt intake.

Volunteers will be asked to fill out a short online questionnaire that can estimate daily salt intake. You'll then receive personalised advice and an educational video on various ways to reduce the salt in your diet. Four weeks later, you'll be asked to complete the will the questionnaire again to see if your understanding and salt intake changed.

The researchers hope that this study will find ways to support people with diabetes to reduce salt intake and avoid high blood pressure.
