Towards Early Diagnosis and Prevention of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: The Role of Smartphones
Denye Ogeh, Segun Fatumo
Abstract: Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) is a chronic condition characterized by high levels of blood glucose. In the United Kingdom (UK), about 7 million people are affected with Impaired Glucose Regulation (IGR) otherwise called prediabetes. T2DM is preventable in those at risk of developing the condition and early detection of T2DM can reduce diabetes related complications. Risk scores are a non-invasive way to detect those either at risk of developing diabetes or with current undiagnosed T2DM. In this work, we developed a Smartphone application (app) which incorporates a validated risk score for detecting undiagnosed T2DM and those at risk in a multi-ethnic UK population using XML and JAVA programming languages.
