Type II Diabetes Mellitus Predictor
- This prediction tool only predicts Type II Diabetes.
- This prediction tool is not intended for patients taking Corticosteroids, Metformin or Insulin.
Abstract: The Type II Diabetes Mellitus Predictor is an online tool that can be used to calculate a user’s risk of developing Type II Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM). The risk prediction is based on the user’s input of medical lab information such as age, sex, body mass index, fasting blood sugar, triglycerides, and high-density lipoprotein levels. The calculator is modelled using a logistic regression model, and has been trained using the medical records of over ten thousand Canadian patients. This newly developed tool is intended to serve physicians and patients in predicting future diabetes risk and take early preventive measures.
