|Abstract:||Diabetes is a chronic disease that increases exponentially. Its consequences are long-term and problematic. To date, there is no cure and patients must rely on appropriate and constant monitoring to maintain a state of health that is as good as possible. This paper proposes a superior method that is grounded in wireless technology and social networks to enable the effective and efficient monitoring of patients suffering from diabetes.|
