PROTOTYPING

RESEARCH & SYNTHESIS

We began our research by looking at who has type 2 diabetes and how they receive treatment for it. We learned that type 2 diabetes is often caused by obesity, stemming from poor eating habits, lack of exercise and genetics.  One of the biggest insights we gleaned was that treatment for diabetes is driven by major behavioral changes, especially when it comes to eating. 

We also discovered that the prevalence of type 2 diabetes is increasing among one group of Americans in particular: millennials. In the last two years, the number of millennials with diabetes increased by 4%, which was the largest increase of any age group. ​
