Impact of Disparities in Food Security on Glycemic Control and Health Care Utilization Among Youth and Young Adults with Diabetes


What is the goal of the study?

This study will identify the day-to-day effects of food insecurity on youth and young adults with diabetes, including impact on their diabetes management and outcomes. SFS 2 will uniquely integrate intensive data collection of the primary outcome (Daily Time in Range (TIR) by Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM)) and the primary exposure (daily food insecurity via Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA)), as well as measures of physical activity (via accelerometers), mood (via EMA) and diet. Longitudinal qualitative interviews will triangulate the quantitative findings with participants’ lived experiences to better understand how to best provide support and design future interventions and policies that are acceptable to Youth and Young Adults (YYA) with diabetes.
