Nutrino and Medtronic use CareKit on iPhone to provide individual FoodPrint™ reports for people with Type 2 Diabetes

Each of our bodies is unique – not only in terms of appearance, but also in body mass index, metabolic rate and susceptibility to conditions like diabetes. Our dietary needs are just as unique as our bodies. While an apple is generally a healthier choice than a cheeseburger, it’s not the ideal choice for every body at every time.

That’s why FoodPrint™ provides sophisticated scientific analysis of how each person’s individual body chemistry interacts with specific foods and provides smart, tailored advice on how to choose the right foods at the right moments.

These insights are especially crucial for people living with chronic conditions like diabetes, which make food choices absolutely vital for managing their symptoms and remaining in peak health.

Recently Nutrino, one of the world’s leading developers of nutrition-related data services, partnered with Medtronic, to give people living with Type 2 diabetes an individualized picture — or FoodPrint™ — of how daily food intake interacts with sleep and other daily activities to impact their glucose levels.

The app is designed for use in clinics and patients can receive access from their doctor. Once a patient living with diabetes receives a professional iPro2 continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) evaluation, Nutrino combines scientific nutritional insights with data generated from that evaluation to deliver detailed, personalized nutrition analysis that inspires people to make positive dietary and behavioral changes.

We’ve worked with a group of physicians to incorporate the FoodPrint™ report into their practice and we’ve already seen some exciting results. We provide patients with an iOS app built on the CareKit framework to capture and log food images and information throughout the CGM evaluation.

At the end of the test period, we generate a personalized FoodPrint™ report that scores meals based on each patient’s personal glycemic reactions. One person’s score of ‘A’ could be another person’s ‘D’.

FoodPrint™ reports make personalized science-based nutritional insights accessible to everyone–and gives them greater understanding of how their bodies respond to the choices they make.

Initial results showed that nutrition information, delivered in an easy-to-understand format, is vital to the treatment of diabetes. Based on the success here, we will be incorporating CareKit into Nutrino for all users living with diabetes in the coming months. “This one-of-a-kind tool fills an important gap in the treatment of Type 2 diabetes,” said Dr. Adriana Katz. “Because food and glucose reactions are unique to individuals, this personalized FoodPrint™ report made it easy for my patients to make better food choices.”
