◆ Artificial Intelligence for diabetes treatment

Lifestyle modification such as diet and exercise therapy is very important for diabetes treatment. However, it is very difficult to maintain this steady state. In case of insulin therapy, it is often difficult to determine the dosage. Therefore, the clinic develops algorithms based on artificial intelligence technology and applies it to clinical practice.

Dr.Kim,Byeong Joon, professor of diabetes and endocrinology at Gachon University Gil Medical Center, said, \"AI clinics for severe diabetes are equipped with the latest treatment methods and equipped with expertise and system at advanced level.\"
