Study Summary

This trial will use a randomized, controlled design to study the effects of a personalized behavioral nutrition intervention on dietary patterns and glycemic control in older Asian Americans.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for older Asian Americans aged 65 or above with type 2 diabetes, an A1C level of at least 7.5%, living in Bexar County, and who own a smartphone. Participants must be willing to engage fully in the study and not be on any special diets other than the ADA recommended diet.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests a Personalized Behavioral Nutrition (PBN) intervention against standard ADA-based nutrition education using digital self-monitoring tools. It aims to see if PBN can improve dietary habits and blood sugar control among older Asian Americans with type 2 diabetes.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since this trial involves nutritional interventions rather than medications, side effects may include changes in digestion or appetite but are generally expected to be minimal compared to drug treatments.
