Indian Researchers Develop AI Algorithm that Detects Diabetes from ECG Data

By 2045, India will account for 134 million diabetic patients. In 2019, 77 million people had diabetes in India 

Researcher developed an AI algorithm that can predict diabetes and pre-diabetes from individual heartbeats recorded on an ECG (electrocardiogram).

China is the diabetes capital of the world, and it’s going to shift to India very soon 

DiaBeats- the AI algorithm developed by Kulkarni and his team detects Type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes by reading ECG data. 

Type 2 diabetes is common among adults and accounts for around 90 per cent of all cases. 

Diagnosis of these conditions relies on the oral glucose tolerance test and Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) estimation, which are invasive and challenging for large-scale screening.
