Exploring illness prediction in type 1 diabetes mellitus pre-symptom onset


Illnesses like infections, cold, influenza and so on in type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) patients, can compromise the daily patient administered diabetes treatment. This in turn may result in fluctuating blood glucose concentrations, especially hyperglycemia for prolonged periods, which over time can cause serious late complications. The illness prediction project at Tromsø Telemedicine Laboratory aims to construct a prediction model that, through use of patient observable parameters, for example, blood glucose, insulin injections and body temperature, can significantly identify risk of developing illnesses, before onset of symptoms and before illness onset.

Such a model could potentially enable T1DM patients to fight the illnesses, and prepare for an adequate change in the T1DM-management earlier on.



To develop an illness prediction model that can predict illness in T1DM patients before onset of symptoms, using the patient’s observable parameters.
