Gestational Diabetes

Clinical use of myfood24

Dietary and lifestyle changes are recommended for treatment of GDM in order to reduce blood glucose levels. Dietary assessment by a dietitian forms part of the standard care at diagnosis to support education and dietary modifications.

In a recent study looking to improve the dietary habits of women newly diagnosed with GDM, myfood24 was used to assess dietary intake alongside glucose monitoring. The women were asked to self-complete their dietary intake using myfood24 as part of the standard antenatal care.

Once you can see it in numbers and can see the picture of it, it’s harder just to shrug off and think I’m fine… I couldn’t just go with it.

Quote from a Research Participant
To our knowledge, myfood24 (Germany) is the first web-based solution for a self-administered 24-hr dietary recall in Germany. From our experience, there is a strong need for such a tool in this country.

A Tool for Germany

Developing myfood24 for use in Germany

University of Bonn, Germany

In order to standardise dietary assessment across countries, Prof Dr Nöthlings contacted Prof Cade to collaborate on adapting myfood24 for use in Germany by translating it and including German Food Composition Tables.

myfood24 was the chosen dietary assessment tool due to its “high-quality” and “fully automated calculation of food and nutrient intakes”. One particular aspect of myfood24 that was highly regarded by the team in Germany was the flexibility; allowing for self- and interviewer-administered 24-hr dietary recalls or food records.

Supporting research into cancer

The creation of myfood24 for Denmark

Danish Cancer Research Society, Denmark

Prof Tjønneland and her team had been searching for some time for an online system that would allow them to accurately monitor dietary intake. In 2015, at an event in Brisbane, myfood24 caught the attention of a colleague working on the project.

Prof Tjønneland approached Prof Cade regarding using myfood24 in the Diet Cancer and Health Next Generation cohort.
