Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a highly prevalent chronic disease characterized by an imbalance in blood glucose and elevated HbA1c levels. Prediabetes often progresses to T2D without lifestyle changes or other interventions. Lowering HbA1c levels is associated with improved outcomes and reduced incidence of the complications that are associated with T2D. At Viome Life Sciences, we have developed a personalized nutrition program whose goal is to reduce HbA1c levels. The primary objective of this clinical trial is to test if our personalized nutritional recommendations and/or supplements can reduce HbA1c levels resulting in improved outcomes for type 2 diabetics and prediabetics.
