The ADA formally recommends: “Systems that combine technology and online coaching can be beneficial in treating prediabetes and diabetes for some individuals.” with a Grade B Evidence Level. Grade B means that there is supportive evidence from well-conducted cohort studies and supportive evidence from a well-conducted case-control study.
