Do you know type 2 diabetes is 90% of the total patients? Type 2 Diabetes mellitus is the most common diabetes in the world, and the number of type 2 diabetics is increasing. Diabetes is a life-long chronic disease, and there is no way to fully recover from it. My thesis is to help people who are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes experience a more efficient treatment process.
I designed a system, which contains an APP, a wearable, and a pillbox. The system could help people with diabetes regulate their behavior, create a healthy lifestyle, and better follow doctor’s advice on treatments to maintain their blood glucose. Such an efficient process could lower the risk of getting complications, and make diabetics’ lives easier and happier.
