This innovative tool aims to empower individuals across Pakistan by providing comprehensive support in managing diabetes, from initial status assessment to facilitating consultations with diabetologists, all while offering valuable insights on blood sugar regulation through dietary choices and physical activity.
Diabot’s Role in the “Discovering Diabetes” Project

With the introduction of this AI-powered solution, the project aims to extend its reach even further, targeting the vast number of undiagnosed diabetics and contributing significantly to the effective management of their condition.
The Brainchild of Syed Jamshed Ahmed
Syed Jamshed Ahmed, the Project Lead of “Discovering Diabetes,” elaborated on the inception of Diabot. He pointed out that the project’s toll-free hotline experienced an overwhelming volume of inquiries related to diabetes.
