- Dietary treatment is the basic therapy for diabetes, but how to do the right food intake is the biggest discouraging problem. We present a proposal for mobile phone diabetes food information display which can help determine the food composition and calories automatically from the clinical point of view with the mature communication technology. We analyzed the composite of the device, especially the key technical method, which is digital image recognition, three-dimensional image analysis, standard tables of food composition database and composite meals energy calculation auxiliary knowledge base. The device has technical feasibility and broad application prospects. It's combination of dietary treatment with smart mobile technology, which can provide great support to solve the problem of food energy assessment and analysis, not only for the single-ingredient food but also the composite meals. The proposal also provides further thinking about how to improve adherence to medical nutrition treatment in diabetes.
