Machine Learning prediction of diabetes comorbidities in a large Italian cohort

Machine Learning prediction of diabetes comorbidities in a large Italian cohort

Diabetes mellitus (DM) and its complications are one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Early detection is crucial to prevent or mitigate its prognosis. However, DM is often diagnosed late and after decades of silent deterioration of the body. Here we use AI to predict five selected diabetes comorbidities on 17,000 routine blood tests with 23 early-accessible variables, none of which is being currently used as a diagnostic criterion for the complications. The promising results support a potential use to empower diagnostic tools and facilitate the early detection of DM complications.
