Currently, people are more concerned about their health and diseases. Therefore, their interests in health and diseases have increased tremendously in the last decade. Till date, medical industries developed several programs and services to promote the health-related issues such as awareness programs regarding HIV, diabetes, dengue, overweight, etc. Due to increased concern for ubiquitous health services, it incorporates the advantage of information technology which can lead to design a preventive management system for various types of disease and health conditions. Further, the technological advancement is also favorable to the management of chronic diseases. In this work, a personal health record (PHR)-based decision support model is proposed for monitoring diabetes using mobile environment. In order to facilitate the people, a graphical user interface is incorporated into the PHR-based model for analyzing their lifestyles.
