Digbi Health is partnering with Dr. Kandace Kichler to offer clinically validated personalized nutrition, fitness, and behavioral counseling programs, based on AI-powered nutritional genomics and gut biome for weight loss and disease prevention. 

A privately held company based in Palo Alto, California, Digbi Health combines proven genetic science with powerful AI technology to offer personalized health programs based on an individual’s DNA, gut biome, and blood markers. Dr. Kandace Kichler is a board-certified General Surgeon with Fellowship training in Minimally Invasive and Bariatric Surgery. She is the Medical Director of Bariatric Surgery at JFK Medical Center in Atlantis, Florida. 

“We are excited to prescribe Digbi Health’s programs to our patients because it takes a systems approach to harness multiple, proven determinants of weight loss—genetics, blood markers, gut biome, food preferences, and lifestyle—into an effective and easy-to-follow program. Food quickly influences your gut biome and regulates your metabolism and genes which is different for everyone—and therefore—should be personalized,” said Dr. Kandace Kichler.

“MDs and scientists like Dr. Kichler recognize obesity is a multifactorial disease and weight-loss programs that deliver sustained, clinically relevant results need to be personalized, based on genetics, phenotypes, and lifestyle, and delivered with the personal touch of in-person or telehealth coaches,” said Ranjan Sinha, Founder and CEO of Digbi Health. “Digbi Health is proud to be at the forefront of this revolution.” 

Digbi Health is part of Blue Shield of California’s Wellvolution network of clinically proven health-management and wellness resources—the largest in the industry. This digital and community health network is available at no additional cost to Blue Shield of California members and can be personalized to members’ individual health needs and preferences, whether they are trying to improve their general health or prevent or reverse disease. 

With its unique proprietary approach, unprecedented convenience, and a focus on precise, better results, Digbi Health’s digital health and remote-monitoring programs are redefining the art and science of health, wellness, and disease management.
