Health tech company January AI has introduced a new generative artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled app to estimate and predict the glucose response of individuals to more than 32 million food items.
The tool requires users to wear a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) only once and it can function even if members are not using a CGM.
The platform is designed to provide users with information such as glucose estimates, predictions and key insights on an ongoing basis.
Users also receive insights on increasing fibre consumption, calorie recommendations, intermittent fasting, lowering glucose-spiking foods and getting post-meal walks.
In contrast to a normal CGM, January AI can predict the impact of food on an individual’s blood sugar, rather than just reporting what has happened.
January AI co-founder Noosheen Hashemi said: “With January AI, members enter foods they are considering eating and the predictive AI model will tell them what it will do to their blood sugar.
“It helps them make better decisions about what they’re about to put into their body, kind of like having an AI nutritionist in your pocket to let you know whether you should order a smoothie or an arugula salad and what happens if you take a 25-minute walk afterwards.”
With January’s AI and database of food items, members can access precise predictions of their glucose curve up to two hours in advance.
This innovation makes January AI the first platform to extend glucose prediction from one hour to two hours, offering predictive capabilities to users even if they don’t have diabetes.
January’s AI utilises a CGM and activity tracker to offer better insight into the body, enabling individuals to make optimal health decisions.
January AI leverages data from partners such as Fitbit, Oura Ring and Apple Health to further study members’ health data.
It also offers recommendations to members for achieving their goals such as weight loss or improving overall metabolic health.
