Abstract

Diabetes mellitus is a disease with numerous complications. To date, there is no known cure for diabetes, but certain measures can be taken to reduce the complication. One important measure is to keep the blood glucose levels as close to normal as possible. Effective control of diabetes depends on self-monitoring and self-care activities such as blood glucose monitoring, appropriate diet and nutrition, exercise regimen and medication administration strategies. Also, individuals have to keep track of their overall health record — a holistic approach instead of only monitoring their blood glucose reading. Currently there are a lot of diabetes management systems available, but most of these systems are stand-alone and focus only on glucose level or a few factors. Therefore in this research we are developing a framework of diabetes management system which integrates with a personal health record and mobile technology. A personal health record, or PHR, is a health record where health data and information related to all aspects of health of health is maintained by the individual. Therefore the proposed system will not only help individual to manage diabetes but also to monitor all body systems and help prevent the complications that may arise from diabetes.
