Details and patient eligibility


The goal of this longitudinal cohort study is to learn about a mHealth intervention in Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) The main question[s] it aims to answer are: Does the intervention increase the amount of text messages between the mHealth software and participants? Do the text messages from the Nudge software increase moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) in participants? Does the MVPA encouraged by the Nudge software improve the HbA1c levels of participants? Participants will: Receive text messages from the Nudge software Report physical activity goals via the text messages to the Nudge software Wear both an accelerometer and an actigraph for three weeks (spread out across the beginning, 30 days, and 90 days of participation) Complete surveys at the beginning of participation Complete daily surveys while wearing the devices Complete surveys at the end of participation Record physical activity in study surveys
