Prescription lifestyle intervention for cardiometabolic diseases
The role of behaviors, including dietary habits and exercise, in the development and progression of type 2 diabetes and other cardiometabolic diseases is well established. These behavioural determinants are resistant to change, but the use of behavioral therapy has been proven clinically effective and is a fundamental aspect of diabetes care. However, our healthcare system is not organized to provide comprehensive behavioral therapy at the scale needed.
Despite clinical guidelines consistently recommend physicians facilitate behavioral interventions, they often lack the ability to provide or prescribe effective behavioral therapy to their patients. Digital solutions connecting diabetic patients and their physicians, providing individualized education and guidance were found to be the most effective in delivering behavioural change and improving glycemic control.
The concept of digital therapeutics comprises software designed for the treatment and prevention of diseases that enables the delivery of behavioral therapy at scale. It meets strict regulatory standards in healthcare and can be prescribed by physicians and reimbursed by healthcare payers like a traditional medication.

In Europe, 50% of the population is overweight and 21 % is obese (WHO). Obesity dramatically increases the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

“I’m glad my patients can use Vitadio program. It doesn’t promise miraculous weight loss, miraculous food or supplements, but it works on gradual changes in patients’ habits that are permanent. I found that majority of my patients signed to the program had better insulin compensations and weight loss (1–10 kg). I’m happy about the results of my patients and I would like to recommend the program to other patients with diabetes mellitus.”
