Study Design & Method

Diabetes Type 2 is a chronic and complex disease, with high heterogeneity, wide variation in age of onset, varying degrees of obesity, insulin resistance and a tendency to develop complications. Its management can prevent or delay the onset of complications and maintain patients' quality of life.

The aim of the study is to investigate the effect of the use of a mobile phone application (Healthentia) by patients with DM2, which makes use of a virtual coach, educational and lifestyle interventions, regarding glycemic control, quality of life, as well as body weight and diet parameters of the patients.
