Nutrino and Medtronic inked a deal to link Nutrino’s nutrition app with Medtronic’s MiniMed Connect and CareLink, providing patients with a”FoodPrint”: Meal plans and food suggestions customized for carbohydrate intake and glucose levels.
“By working with Nutrino we can have a real impact on the food decisions people with diabetes face every single day,” diabetes division president Annette Brüls said in prepared remarks. “With this new service, we will not only enhance our customers’ day-to-day lives but will also help us collect insights to inform how we approach diabetes management in the future as we work to transform care to drive greater freedom and better health. In addition, the Nutrino Diabetes specific, validated food database and carb counting support will be available in Medtronic’s digital offerings.”
The Nutrino app also connects with wellness devices and activity trackers such as Apple’s HealthKit, Runkeeper, Moves, Jawbone, Withings and Fitbit.
“We are excited to partner with Medtronic to bring advanced nutrition insights to people living with diabetes,” added Nutrino president Yael Glassman. “This is an important milestone for Nutrino as we take personalized, contextual and digital nutrition to the next level for the benefit of people living with chronic conditions.”
