A Complete Diabetes Management and Care System
Diabetes has become a serious health concern. The development of highly evolved blood glucose measurement devices have led to tremendous improvements in glucose monitoring and diabetic management. Tracking and maintaining traceability between glucose measurements, insulin doses and carbohydrate intake can provide useful information to physicians, health professionals, and patients. This paper presents an information system, called GLUMIS (GLUcose Management Information System), aimed to support diabetes management activities. It encompasses a rule-based method for predicting future glucose values, a reasoner and visualization elements. Through integration with glucose measurement devices it is possible to collect historical treatment data and with REALI system insulin doses and dietary habits can be processed. Through an experimental study, quantitative and qualitative data was collected. An analysis was applied and shown that GLUMIS is feasible and capable of resulting interesting rules that can help diabetics.
