Predict Diabetes Complications

30% of patients with diabetes develop disease-related complications. AI-based assistants offer personalized recommendations to improve habits.


Diabetes represents a significant global challenge, with a variety of severe complications affecting multiple organs and bodily systems. These complications include cardiovascular diseases, neuropathy, nephropathy, and retinopathy, contributing to overall morbidity and mortality in the affected population. Furthermore, the incidence of these complications can vary considerably based on demographics and individual risk factors, complicating effective treatment and management of the disease [1], [2].

Approximately 30% of individuals with diabetes develop disease-related complications [3]. This underscores the urgent need for effective strategies to prevent and manage these complications, which can significantly improve patient quality of life and alleviate the burden on the healthcare system.

Size of the Problem

  • Global Prevalence: According to the World Health Organization, approximately 422 million people worldwide have diabetes [1].
  • Mortality: Diabetes was the direct cause of approximately 1.6 million deaths in 2016 [2].
  • Economic Costs: The global estimated cost of diabetes was about $1.3 trillion in 2015 [3].

Why it matters

Addressing the complications of diabetes is crucial due to its profound impact on both patient quality of life and global health systems. Diabetic complications are a leading cause of disability, resulting in significant economic burden due to treatment costs and loss of productivity. Furthermore, the ability to prevent or delay these complications can translate into substantial improvements in health outcomes and a reduction in premature deaths. Thus, developing effective strategies to prevent and manage these complications is essential, not only improving patients' lives but also reducing the strain on health resources [2].


  1. Predictive Analysis for Early Detection: Utilize advanced AI algorithms to analyze large datasets of patient records and biometric data to identify early signs of diabetes complications. This predictive capability allows healthcare providers to intervene much earlier, potentially preventing the progression of complications.
  2. Personalized Treatment Plans with AI: Implement machine learning models that consider individual patient histories and current health data to tailor treatment plans. By adjusting medication dosages and lifestyle recommendations based on AI-driven insights, specialists can optimize treatment efficacy and reduce the risk of severe complications.
  3. Digital Assistant for Diabetes Management: Develop a digital assistant designed specifically to aid medical specialists in predicting diabetes-related complications swiftly and taking rapid, informed actions. Based on the guidelines mentioned in [4], this assistant uses AI to analyze clinical and biometric data, offering personalized recommendations to specialists for enhancing patient habits and preventing complications. Through continuous interaction with clinical staff, the assistant enables specialists to proactively manage patient care, improving treatment outcomes and overall patient well-being.
