Diabetes Digital

Black-owned Diabetes Digital has launched its innovative virtual nutrition counseling service, expanding access to 23 states.

Meet The Founders

Jessica Jones and Wendy Lopez founded Diabetes Digital as an online platform for virtual nutrition counseling dedicated to diabetes and prediabetes.

CEO Jones and COO Lopez are nationally recognized Registered Dietitian Nutritionists and Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialists.

The pair also co-founded Food Heaven – an online platform and podcast offering resources on cooking, intuitive eating, and body respect.

The Diabetes Digital team comprises Registered Dietitians and Certified Diabetes Educators, bringing extensive expertise to users.

“Diabetes Digital is more than a platform; it’s a movement towards a more personalized and empathetic approach to diabetes care,” Jones said in a press release.

“Leveraging our extensive experience from Food Heaven, we’re thrilled to offer a service that truly resonates with the needs of today’s clients.”

Diabetes Digital’s Counseling Service

Based in San Francisco and extending services across 23, Diabetes Digital is set to transform the landscape of diabetes and prediabetes management.

The service is designed to honor its clients’ cultural heritage and unique health journeys, representing a major leap forward in virtual diabetes care.

The platform offers 1:1 coaching, meal guides, support groups, handouts, and messaging.

Diabetes Digital is built upon core pillars that guide everything they do.

These include being culturally relevant by embracing diversity as they tailor their approach to resonate with their customers’ cultural backgrounds, including consultations in Spanish.

Becoming tech-forward is also one of their core pillars to harness the latest technological advancements by bringing innovative solutions to customers’ fingertips.

The platform also includes weight inclusion and financial accessibility, as it is in network with insurance companies Aetna, BCBS, Cigna, Health Net, Medicare, and United to expand accessibility.
