Khaleej Times - - NATION -

DHA is planning to estab­lish a Dubai Di­a­betes Risk cal­cu­la­tor, al­low­ing Dubai res­i­dents and na­tion­als to check what their di­a­betes risk is, just through an app. The au­thor­ity also plans to in­tro­duce per­sonal health coaches to of­fer per­sonal life­style guid­ance to peo­ple.

Dr Mo­hamed Has­sanein, con­sul­tant en­docri­nol­o­gist at Dubai Hos­pi­tal, said the new statis­tics will also help tar­get those in the pre-di­a­betes stage and tai­lor pre­ven­tion pro­grammes for high-risk groups and pro­mote a healthy life­style to the low-risk ones.
