Solving The Diabetes Equation
: Preventive Approaches using AI

Diabetes is one of the fastest growing health challenges of the 21st century, with the number of adults living with diabetes having more than tripled over the past 20 years. The increasing prevalence of diabetes worldwide is driven by a complex interplay of socioeconomic, demographic, environmental and genetic factors.

Growing urbanisation and changing lifestyle habits (e.g. higher calorie intake, increasing consumption of processed foods, sedentary lifestyles) are contributory factors for the increasing prevalence of type 2 diabetes at a societal level. While global prevalence of diabetes in urban areas is 10.8%, in rural areas it is lower, at 7.2%. However, this gap is closing, with rural prevalence on the rise.

About 422 million people worldwide have diabetes, the majority living in low-and middle-income countries, and 1.6 million deaths are directly attributed to diabetes each year.

Key questions

How should healthcare providers and specialists deal with the expected surge in cases?

How can AI and IoT play a role in preventive and personalised healthcare roadmap for individuals, especially those disadvantaged groups?

What are the use cases / case studies for deployment of innovative technology to curtail the spread of diabetes?
