Diabetes Applications For Arabic Speakers: A Critical Review Of Available Apps For Android And Ios Operated Smartphones.

Diabetes Applications for Arabic Speakers: A Critical Review of Available Apps for Android and iOS Operated Smartphones. College of Computer Science & Engineering, Kuwait University. Today, 415 million adults have diabetes; more than 35 million of diabetic adults live in the Middle East and North Africa region. Smartphone penetration in the region is high and applications, or apps, for diabetics have shown promising results in recent years. This study took place between September and December 2015 and reviewed all currently available smartphone diabetes apps for Arabic speakers in both the Apple App and Google Play stores. There were only few diabetes apps for Arabic speakers; only eighteen apps were discovered and considered for this study. Most apps were informational. Only three apps offered utilities such as glucose reading conversion. The apps had issues related to information quality and adherence to latest evidence-based medical advice. There is a need for more evidence-based Arabic diabetes apps with improved functionality. Future research of Arabic diabetes apps should also focus on the involvement and engagement of the patients in the design of these apps. Continue reading >>

Type Ii Diabetes Mellitus In Arabic-speaking Countries

Type Ii Diabetes Mellitus In Arabic-speaking Countries

Copyright © 2012 Mohammad Badran and Ismail Laher. This is an open access article distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution License, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. Abstract The global epidemic of diabetes has not spared the Arabic-speaking countries, which have some of the highest prevalence of type II diabetes. This is particularly true of the Arab Gulf, a conglomerate of high income, oil-producing countries where prevalence rates are the highest. The prevalence rates among adults of the Arabic speaking countries as a whole range between 4%–21%, with the lowest being in Somalia and the highest in Kuwait. As economic growth has accelerated, so has the movement of the populations to urban centers where people are more likely to adopt lifestyles that embrace increased high-calorie food consumption and sedentary lifestyles. These factors likely contribute to the increased prevalence of obesity and diabetes in the Arabic speaking countries. 1. Introduction Diabetes mellitus, long considered a disease of minor significance to world health, is now considered one of the main threats to human health in this century. The global epidemic of people with type II diabetes is largely due to population growth, aging, urbanization, and the scourge of obesity and physical inactivity. The total number of people worldwide with type II diabetes was expected to increase from 171 million in 2000 to 366 million in 2030 [1]. Unfortunately, the prevalence worldwide already reached 366 by 2011 according to the international Diabetes Federation (IDF), and the projections are that prevalence of diabetes on a global scale could well reach 530 million people in 2030 [1]. The World Health Organiza Continue reading >>

Quality Of Diabetes Information In Arabic Language: A Comparison Of Newspaper And Medical Web Contents

Quality of Diabetes Information in Arabic Language: A Comparison of Newspaper and Medical Web Contents Improper knowledge of diabetes Improper knowledge of diabetes and its associated tissue damage leads to increased prevalence of complications and hospital admissions. The public gets most of its health information from media, and internet (Net) is an increasingly important source of this kind of information. This study was designed to evaluate the quality (coverage [amp] accuracy) of diabetes information available for the Egyptian people through Net in comparison with the one published on the press with a high circulation. We searched the Net (June - July 06) using two of the most commonly used search engines that offer Arabic accesses (Google [amp] msn). Sixty web sites were randomly selected to be evaluated (Net Group). We also conducted a retrospective content analysis of press coverage of diabetes in the 5 Arabic newspapers with the widest circulation in Egypt, from February 1, 06 to July 31, 06. Forty-one articles were collected to be included in the study (Press Group). We used the guidelines supplied by the ADA as a standard for comparison. Nineteen percent of the Web sites were developed by scientific organizations for educational purposes. Thirty-nine percent of the Net Group and 71% of Press Group contents were produced by commercial ventures. On average, 44% of the clinical elements on Net Group and only 17% on Press Group were more than minimally covered. When we combined the measures of accuracy and coverage, the mean percent of clinical elements that received a rating of more than minimally covered and were completely accurate, was 23% for Net Group and only 7% for Press Group. Conflicting information were significantly more dominant among Press Group co Continue reading >>

Health Information Sharing On Facebook: An Exploratory Study On Diabetes Mellitus

Health Information Sharing On Facebook: An Exploratory Study On Diabetes Mellitus

Volume 9, Issue 6 , NovemberDecember 2016, Pages 708-712 Author links open overlay panel Zainab A.AlQarnia FaiselYunusb Mowafa S.Househac Increasingly, people are using Facebook (FB) to share health information. However, little is known about the type of information sharing and its potential health consequences in the Arabic speaking world. This study attempts to fill this knowledge gap for diabetes mellitus (DM). We conducted a retrospective qualitative FB content analysis using predefined eligibility criteria. The analysis was restricted to diabetes related groups in the Arabic speaking world. The data were collected between June 2010 and December 2015. A total of 55 groups were screened of which seven met the eligibility criteria. We found 6107 posts in Arabic related to DM of which 1551 posts were included for further analysis. There were 458 (30%) FB posts from Egypt with no posts from Somalia, Yemen, Comoros, and Djibouti. The majority of the posts, 863 (56%), were from females. The focus of the posts was on sharing personal experiences (n=423, 27%), raising awareness (n=210, 3.5%), providing spiritual support (n=162, 10.4%), sharing latest research (n=147, 9.5%), and providing education (n=110, 7.1%) on DM. A large number of the posts by people in 4060 year age group were around finding out diagnosis related information due to limited access to care in their home countries. Patients with DM are increasingly sharing their health information with other FB users. This study will help inform future research with regard to health information sharing and designing appropriate interventions to harness the power of social media in improving public health.
