Digital Self-Management and Health Coaching for Type 2 Diabetes - Impact on Diabetes Clinical and Wellness Indicators

2019-08-19 19:46:36 | BioPortfolio


Each subject enrolled in the study will be requested to complete an intake questionnaire including diabetes quality of life questions. The subject will use Dario Blood glucose monitoring system and will be contacted by a Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) two to three times a month as well as have a direct communication using other communication channels such as mail, chat and text messaging (SMS) for lifestyle and diabetes management coaching for a total duration of three months. In the end of study, the subject will complete a diabetes quality of life questionnaire and have a blood test to evaluate its clinical parameters.


This study is designed to assess the effect of digital self-monitoring platform used with the remote support of a Health coach on clinical outcomes and Diabetes quality of life.

Study design will be an open-label randomized trial of adults with Type 2. Patients are recruited through the Diabetes and Endocrinology Consultants center setting. Upon randomization to the intervention group, study participants will receive three months diabetes health coaching comprising of:

1. Two scheduled phone sessions with a Diabetes health coach a month;

2. Ongoing dual communication with the coach using digital communication channels such as chat, SMS and emails

3. Diabetes education, behavior modification, goal setting and reinforcement. The Dario App will record participant's glucose measurements and additional information captured by the patient such as medication intake, food and physical activity results.

The coach will get access to the patients' App captured information and will intervene ad necessary in the context of the clinical information.

Blood glucose monitoring in diabetes: rationale and procedure.

Diabetes mellitus is a condition that results in elevated blood glucose levels. Continued elevation can contribute to progressive micro- and macrovascular complications, leading to renal, nerve and oc...

Comparison of flash glucose monitoring with real time continuous glucose monitoring in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes treated with continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion.

In 2016 intermittently scanned continuous glucose monitoring (isCGM) became the first reimbursed CGM system in Belgium. Many children with type 1 diabetes (T1D) treated with multiple daily injections ...

Glucose management for rewards: A randomized trial to improve glucose monitoring and associated self-management behaviors in adolescents with type 1 diabetes.

This randomized, controlled trial evaluated a monetary-based reinforcement intervention for increasing self-monitoring blood glucose (SMBG) among youth with poorly controlled type 1 diabetes.

Disagreement between capillary blood glucose and flash glucose monitoring sensor can lead to inadequate treatment adjustments during pregnancy.

Continuous glucose monitoring tends to replace capillary blood glucose (CBG) self-monitoring. Our aim was to determine the agreement between CBG and a flash glucose monitoring system (Flash-GMS) in tr...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.

Self evaluation of whole blood glucose levels outside the clinical laboratory. A digital or battery-operated reflectance meter may be used. It has wide application in controlling unstable insulin-dependent diabetes.

A 51-amino acid pancreatic hormone that plays a major role in the regulation of glucose metabolism, directly by suppressing endogenous glucose production (GLYCOGENOLYSIS; GLUCONEOGENESIS) and indirectly by suppressing GLUCAGON secretion and LIPOLYSIS. Native insulin is a globular protein comprised of a zinc-coordinated hexamer. Each insulin monomer containing two chains, A (21 residues) and B (30 residues), linked by two disulfide bonds. Insulin is used as a drug to control insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 1).

A glucoside-derived SODIUM-GLUCOSE TRANSPORTER 2 inhibitor that stimulates urinary excretion of glucose by suppressing renal glucose reabsorption. It is used to manage BLOOD GLUCOSE levels in patients with TYPE 2 DIABETES.

A pathological state in which BLOOD GLUCOSE level is less than approximately 140 mg/100 ml of PLASMA at fasting, and above approximately 200 mg/100 ml plasma at 30-, 60-, or 90-minute during a GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST. This condition is seen frequently in DIABETES MELLITUS, but also occurs with other diseases and MALNUTRITION.
