Special Section: Biomedical and Health Informatics for Diabetes

It is estimated that 371 million people worldwide have diabetes and the number is increasing at an alarming rate. In addition to short-term symptoms, there are long-term macro and microvascular complications including cardiovascular disease, especially heart attacks and strokes, kidney failure, diabetic foot disease leading to gangrene and amputation, and blindness. Evidence suggests that the complications are reduced by good control of blood glucose. The associated financial costs are substantial and 80% of those affected live in low and middle countries.

In this special issue, we have compiled eight papers from those submitted to the JBHI call for papers on “Biomedical and Health Informatics for Diabetes” and those through normal submission route. The final set of papers includes a broad range of topics covering areas of technologies and informatics that are keys to the management of diabetes.
