Diabetes is one of the leading causes of death across the globe. Its treatment and management of optimal blood sugar levels are tiresome for the patient and their family. Especially for the patients that are suffering from type-1 diabetes.
Furthermore, AI technology provides an easy means of treating a diabetic patient according to the latest studies, particularly during pandemics.
Unveiling the Deadly Disease
Insulin enables the body’s tissues and muscles to uptake glucose from the blood and maintains blood glucose levels within the normal range, a process lacking in diabetes patients.
Either glucose forms energy in the form of ATP by tissues, or the storage of glucose may occur. Moreover, deficiency of insulin results in hyperglycemia. Unlike diabetes, hyperglycemia is a condition in which blood glucose levels rise above the normal range.
Persistent hyperglycemia in diabetic patients leads to complications. Added to that, it can cause blindness, kidney failure, heart attacks, stroke, limb amputation, and death.
There are three major types of diabetes. Type-1 diabetes, or juvenile diabetes, also known as insulin-dependent diabetes, occurs at an early age. It involves the administration of insulin injection in patients.
Type-2 diabetes, also known as insulin-independent diabetes, occurs at an older age.
Gestational diabetes occurs in women during pregnancy. Women may or may not be able to overcome it after childbirth. Proper physical activity, a healthy diet, regular exercise, and anti-diabetic drugs enable the diabetic patient to control elevations of blood glucose effectively.
Medical Professionals in Debt of AI Technology
Artificial intelligence technology is the intelligence of machines. It has many applications in daily life, business, medicine, agriculture, space exploration, autonomous vehicles, and artificial creativity. Moreover, it is helpful in medical diagnosis, electronic trading platforms, robot control, and remote sensing.
All the relevant information regarding a particular application is installed into the machines associated with AI technology. Added to that, AI in healthcare is capable of evaluating CT scans or EKGs, as well as plays a vital role in monitoring diabetes patients.
AI technology is able to calculate the precise dosage according to an individual patient, particularly helpful in treating diabetes patients. Moreover, research is being carried out to develop AI technology that can assist doctors in the treatment of cancer patients.
Surgeons at the Children’s National Medical Center, in Washington, in a recent study demonstrated successful surgery with an autonomous robot. IBM has created IBM Watson, its own artificial intelligence computer. Furthermore, it has successfully proven itself in the field of healthcare.
AI in healthcare has certain other applications. This includes AI for heart sound analysis, tumor detection, design treatment plans, provide consultations, and drug creation. Added to that, AI enables us to predict HIV progression and predict the likelihood of death from surgical procedures.
AI provides Ease To Diabetes Patients
The life of a diabetic patient is somewhat tiresome as being a diabetic patient you need to monitor your glucose levels on regular bases. Moreover, physical activity and diet need to be planned according to the current condition of a diabetic patient.
Furthermore, to make a diabetic patient’s life easier the NextDREAM Consortium group designed an automated AI-based decision-support-system, the DreaMed Advisor.
Moreover, the group conducted a six-month study to assess the efficacy and safety of DreaMed Advisor. In this study, they made a comparison between consultations given by AI-based decision-support systems and physician-guided recommendations.
The study was published in Nature Medicine. The result of the study was that the DreaMed Advisor was able to control glucose levels of the diabetic patient. Somewhat a physician with diabetes expertise would control.
DreaMed Advisor an AI-based decision-support technology, provides a standard way to manage insulin therapy for diabetic patients. Moreover, it acts as a full-time personalized medical advisor, especially ideal for type-1 diabetic patients. DreaMed Advisor dose adjustment is as effective as an expert physician dose adjustment.
