Lifestyle plays an essential role in controlling diabetes and in both the prevention and management of diabetes. Many reports from clinical research support the theory that healthy eating and regular exercise are much more effective at managing diabetes than traditional medication. In this paper we introduce an innovative approach to the multimodal recommender system conceived in the EU METABO project. The most important feature of the METABO Diabetes-Lifestyle Recommender (MED-StyleR) is to generate highly personalized recommendations that satisfy medical prescriptions for patients' long-term health alongside and short-term preferences of patients in their daily lives.
