Type 2 Diabetes is considered a lifestyle disease that, if not appropriately managed/treated can lead to significant disability and negatively impact the lives of those with the condition. It has been established that lifestyle factors (nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress and social wellbeing) make a big difference to the development, progression and treatment of the disease, however, due to the individual differences between people,not everyone gains the same benefit from the same recommendations

This study will examine the effect of providing personalized lifestyle guidance to individuals, based on their individual differences, on markers associated with Type 2 Diabetes.

The study will include 100-120 participants and will run for 6 months. Participants will be provided with access to personalized lifestyle suggestions through the Shae app, and will receive resources and workshops to support the development of knowledge, awareness and behaviour change based on the personalized lifestyle suggestions.

Some individuals will be asked to live their normal lifestyles for a period of time before entering the trial to allow a comparison of standard care with the personalized lifestyle approach.

The first wave of active intervention is set to being late August/Early September, 2022 The second wave of active intervention will being 6-6.5 months after the first wave, i.e. Feb/March 2023
