Diabetes is one of the most prevalent chronic mellitus which occurs when blood glucose (sugar) increases more than normal. Diabetes management has been playing an important role on preventing or delaying occurrence of the life threatening diabetes complications. By providing a roaming operation environment, internet healthcare technologies can bring efficiencies and convenience to both diabetics and relative medics on diabetes management. The remote monitoring of patients is considered an important tool in facilitating improvements in diabetes care. By using a web-based CDSS patients will have access into database to enter their medical readings and queries which are related with their chronic illness and they will be able to receive the latest developments and recommendations to take careful and follow the medical advice by practitioners. The system will gather their medicinal data and these data will be held on a database and the system will process these data to validate the progress of the patients. It will allow the health care provider, to make an informed healthcare decision based on the collected data. The readings of diabetes and recommendations of treatments are sent to the patient and their general practitioners. This system will have the potential to reduce healthcare costs and increase patient program compliance.
