Study purpose and parameters

Voluntary participation: You may withdraw from the study at any time without giving any reason. Refusal to participate or early withdrawal from this study will not adversely affect your medical care.

Aims of the study: We want to know how an online app-based education and training program can support you to establish healthy daily habits leading to glucose stability. The participants (you) will be asked to wear a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) in combination with a smartphone App for four weeks to achieve stable glucose levels and improve their (your) physical and cognitive well-being.

Benefits of the study: You will be able to experience how your physical and cognitive performance can be affected by fluctuations in your blood glucose levels. This may help you to tailor your lifestyle and diet to feel your best every day with stabilized blood glucose.

Dynamic approach: The purely online-based implementation of the study includes 1-2 online cognitive assessments, 2 or 3 online questionnaires (depending on your study duration of 14 or 28 days), and event logging of lifestyle events like nutrition, exercise, and mood on a smartphone app. This will allow you to find out something every day about your body and your mind.

AnonymityYour data will only be shared for statistical purposes and you will not be mentioned by name without exception. You will also not be named in any scientific publications of the data from this study.
