Type 1 diabetes: AI could help people manage their condition
Researchers have developed an automated system for people with type 1 diabetes. The AI-based system provides advice to help these individuals avoid dangerously low blood glucose levels.
A preliminary study suggests that the system’s weekly recommendations on insulin doses and diet closely match those that diabetes specialists provide.
People with type 1 diabetes produce insufficient insulin, the hormone that the body uses to regulate blood glucose levels.
To maintain optimal glucose levels and avoid episodes of dangerously low or high blood sugar levels — known as hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia, respectively — people with this condition must take carefully controlled doses of insulin.
Many people with type 1 diabetes manage their condition successfully using a dosing regimen known as multiple daily injections, which involves injecting a long acting form of insulin once or twice a day, plus fast acting insulin at each mealtime.
In between mealtimes, they also have the option of injecting “correction doses” of fast acting insulin if their blood sugar levels rise too high.
