Beskrivning av projektet
Digital services are widely developed for supporting healthy lifestyle and prevention of lifestyle related diseases. For such services to be effective, people have to adhere to their use and to the lifestyle changes they promote. This requires that the services are able to meet their personal needs. In this study, we will use the existing unique dataset from the StopDia and DPS studies consisting of lifestyle, metabolomic and genetic data. Supported by our international experts, we will use data-driven approaches and artificial intelligence to study which baseline factors explain adherence to lifestyle interventions, how healthy habits are formed and how lifestyle changes lead to positive changes in type 2 diabetes risk factors. Our objective is to develop data-driven methods to be implemented into the national system for self-care in Finland. Study will lead to new approaches and solutions that promote healthier lifestyle, bringing significant cost-savings to the society.
