The Dubai Diabetes Centre (DDC), is planning to undergo expansion services to enhance its capacity and cater to a larger number of patients. The centre recently completed a proof of concept project for the implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to detect diabetic retinopathy.
The Centre is also working on another pilot study, which aims to investigate the effective use of tele-monitoring technology in patients who don’t turn up for follow-up visits and as a result have poor diabetic control. These patients then lead to a significant burden on the health system as an outcome of the resulting complications.
The Centre will also soon begin an obesity clinic to help patients struggling with obesity with realistic and effective ways to lose weight and to maintain that weight loss as well.
