  • Presentation Title:

    Digital Health tools for Personalizing Dietary Advice

    Presentation Synopsis:

    The importance of a high-quality diet in fighting disease and optimising the performance of drugs is becoming well-understood. Current advice is very generic (e.g. Eat 5-a-day!) and there are no tools available either for professional nutritionists or patients themselves that enable them to understand which foods will work best with each patient’s individual combination of diseases and drugs. The talk will discuss the development of such a tool (healthyswaps.diet) that can provide personalised advice at the point of care or at home, in the supermarket or online to enable everyone to understand and avoid foods that are likely to interact with or change the behaviour of their medicines.
