The algorithm can identify patterns and learn from data with human assistance, analyzing information from individuals' blood sugar responses to tens of thousands of meals to recognize personal characteristics underlying certain glucose reactions. From these findings, DayTwo can forecast a specific food's effect on blood sugar, and assign scores to meals. Last year, DayTwo learned that in using the algorithm to match diet to an individual's microbiome and metabolism, it could control blood sugar more effectively than the Mediterranean diet.  ....
