Diabetes is especially important in the US, growing rapidly. Cardiovascular disease causes 1 in 4 US deaths, and over 10 million are affected by either diabetic retinopathy or glaucoma, which can progress to irreversible blindness. DOC Tracker app reads a colorimetric sensor, calculating saliva acetone concentration (known diabetes biomarker). The 3D-printed imaging attachment takes image of the back of the retina, and four deep learning algorithms classify diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, cardiovascular risk. These combined improve monitoring of diabetes of its complications, and the device brings improvements in rapidity, inexpensiveness, convenience, mobility, continuous monitoring, etc.
