Precision Diets for Diabetes Prevention


Trial ID: NCT03919877


With this study the investigators want to understand the physiological differences for people developing pre-diabetes and diabetes. The investigators hypothesize that different individuals go through different paths in the development of the disease. By understanding the personal mechanism for developing disease, the investigators will find a personalized approach to prevent that development. The investigators are also hoping to be able to find a biomarker that will pinpoint to the particular defect and thus, diagnose the problem at an earlier stage and have the information to give personalized diet recommendations to prevent the development of diabetes more effectively.
