DAHNA is a mobile app for a Healthy Heart created based on the expertise of professionals in cardiology and nutritional diseases and diabetes in Romania and in accordance with the recommendations of the latest guidelines dedicated to the prevention of cardiovascular diseases of the European Society of Cardiology and the American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology
With DAHNA any user can create their own cardiometabolic profile and, based on their personal data, calculate their risk for cardiovascular events for the next 10 years using the SCORE-2/SCORE-2 OP risk scores (for European countries) or the Framingham score (for the USA and other countries that use this score). The app automatically targets one of these scores based on the user's country of residence. The user thus finds out whether he is at low/medium/high or very high risk and, following this result, the application recommends the user to refer to specialist doctors for appropriate lifestyle interventions and/or treatment.
DAHNA is an excellent tool for correcting a major risk factor which is unhealthy diet. This is because DAHNA automatically offers healthy menus built on the principles of the Mediterranean diet, a diet recommended as class IA by the Guidelines of the professional medical societies mentioned above. These daily menus are customized according to the user's metabolic profile. DAHNA also automatically creates the list of ingredients needed down to the last gram, a list systematized by the shopping sectors of any supermarket/grocery store. Having this list the user will save a lot of time either by going to the supermarket knowing exactly what and in what quantities he will buy or by sending the list of ingredients directly to the companies specialized in providing food ingredients at home. In the very near future, these facilities will be extended to the ordering and delivery of personalized menus either at the user's home or workplace.
The user constantly receives educational materials about healthy lifestyle and can periodically reassess his cardiometabolic profile and, through it, the evolution of his risk score for cardiovascular events. Please enjoy DAHNA!
