DayTwo uses Food As Medicine to enable a path to remission for Type 2 diabetes and PreDiabetes. People respond very differently to the same food, therefore, knowing what food and what combination of foods “works” for each person is crucial to an effective Diabetes care plan.

DayTwo uses a gut profile (stool sample, akin to Cologuard) to identify the right food and nutrition plan for each patient, to balance blood sugar levels, improve energy, manage hunger, and lose weight.

The DayTwo solution is delivered through registered dietitians, diabetes educators, and doctors via tele-health (text, video, and phone) a gut profile lab test, and a mobile app to track progress and improvement and communicate with the members assigned clinician-coach.

DayTwo uses A1C and Time In Range as the primary clinical outcomes, and weight as a secondary outcome. For those employers who implement the DayTwo protocol, DayTwo offers up to 100% fees-at-risk.
