Design and development of a phone application for the automatic information of parents of children with diabetes type 1
Summary:
Diabetes is a global issue and one of the biggest health emergencies of the 21st century worldwide. It is a heterogeneous group of metabolic diseases characterized by chronic hyperglycemia and disorders of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins metabolism and is due to a disorder of insulin secretion, its action or sometimes both.
Type 1 diabetes, also known as insulin - dependent diabetes, manifests during childhood and adolescence, usually after the age of 11 to 12 years. The incidence among children and adolescents is increasing annually, while it is estimated that a total of 1,106,200 children and adolescents over the age or 20 years are suffering from type 1 diabetes globally.
The rapid development of health informatics, telemedicine and mobile health (mHealth), can make a significant contribution to the care and health services associated with type 1 diabetes.
The aim of this thesis is the design and development of a pilot application for mobile devices on type 1 diabetes. This pilot application aims to automatically inform parents of children with insulin – dependent diabetes on the results of their blood glucose levels while the child is in the school environment.
This study presents the pilot application and analyzes the method followed for its development and the technologies that were used. Finally, there is a presentation of the main conclusion, the need for practical implementation of the pilot application and the future plans for its improvement.
