Channel News Asia's article "Doctors, patients call for more awareness on Type 1 diabetes" shared about challenges facing diabetic patients that partly come from a lack of awareness among the general public. As a result, there is a misconception that diabetes happens only among older people or overweight people.
Furthermore, doctors warned that poor management of type 1 diabetes could lead to numerous health complications including blindness. Hence, eye screening is recommended for ages 18 and above.
While the Ministry of Health is working on increasing access to treatments to improve patients' quality of life, Sight AI is developing a Retina AI Detection System to assist medical professionals in detecting the early onset of diabetic retinopathy and other diseases instantaneously.
