Abstract

© 2016 IEEE. With diabetes patients doubling every year especially in the UAE there is a need to curb this epidemic and help those who are affected to live an active life. Continuous monitoring of health indicators ensures prompt medical attention and reduction in fatalities. The primary challenge to continuously monitor diabetes is that glucose level measurement requires invasive methods. Moreover, continuous monitoring must happen remotely and therefore would require computing and networking technologies that is seamless, real-Time, high speed, and with large storage capacities. With the increasing penetration of smartphones, especially in the UAE, we propose a framework for continuous monitoring of diabetes on the smartphone platform. We also survey the state-of-The-Art in continuous health monitoring.
