Abstract

Diabetes occurs when the pancreas in the human body does not secrete sufficient insulin. It is a disease that is growing rapidly and affecting many lives. Hence, it needs constant monitoring. Wearable devices are those devices that are present on your person at all times. If the monitoring of this disease could be paired with wearable devices along with enabling real-time documentation in the patients’ medical records, it would benefit both the caregivers and the patients by saving time, money, effort and the amount of work put in by both during the health care process, hence, aiding in the delivery of quality health care. This article deals with identifying the existing wearable devices in detecting diabetes or risk of diabetes non-invasively and further scope of research in the respective area.
