Across the world, the number of people with diabetes has skyrocketed from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014. In the U.S., more than 40 million people are living with type 2 diabetes. More importantly, more than one-third remain undiagnosed. In other words, over 10 million people across the U.S. have no idea about their disease and, thus, cannot access treatment.
However, the general problem goes far beyond these alarming numbers. Over the next 10 years, the American Diabetes Association is expecting a rapid increase in the number of people with undiagnosed diabetes: before 2030, more than 13,1 million people worldwide will be living with diabetes without knowing about it.
At its earliest stage, type 2 diabetes has no visible symptoms or warning signs. Now, people are not able to identify their disease by themselves. Among the most privileged ones, some can learn about their condition during the annual check-up. However, what about the other millions of people?
In its core, AssayMe
strives to make traditional laboratory diagnostics painless and affordable. The solution we are offering is a combination of an app and a simple urine-test strip. First, AssayMe users put their urine-test strip into a fresh urine sample. Then, by using advanced computer vision algorithms, our AssayMe app automatically scans the test strip. Finally, the app analyzes the urine based on 10 key indicators: Leukocytes, Nitrite, Urobilinogen, Protein, pH, Blood, Specific Gravity, Ketone, Bilirubin, Glucose.
As a result, we can inform our user whether he or she is currently at risk of type 2 diabetes. If our algorithm detects a risk, the app immediately notifies the user and provides key guidelines on diet and physical activity. Moreover, we strongly recommend the user to contact their health provider for additional diagnostics.
We help you understand your diabetes health and monitor your health condition.Our solution
