Transforming Diabetes Care: Top 5 AI Startups

The world of diabetes care is undergoing significant transformations, driven by the rapid advancements in artificial intelligence (AI). From personalized treatment plans to advanced glucose monitoring systems, AI startups are revolutionizing how diabetes is managed, becoming more efficient and patient-centric. Here, we explore five leading AI startups—AEYE Health, Virta Health, Glytec, DreaMed Diabetes, and Glooko—that are at the forefront of this revolution.


Glytec is a pioneer in insulin management software, developing the eGlycemic Management System (eGMS). This system uses AI to optimize insulin dosing, providing both inpatient and outpatient care solutions.

Glytec’s eGMS integrates with electronic health records (EHRs) and uses AI algorithms to analyze blood glucose levels and recommend precise insulin doses. This reduces the risk of hypo- and hyperglycemia, enhancing patient safety and outcomes. In hospitals, eGMS helps manage patients’ glucose levels more effectively, reducing complications and length of stay. For outpatient care, it supports continuous glucose monitoring, helping patients maintain better control over their diabetes.

DreaMed Diabetes

DreaMed Diabetes is dedicated to developing AI-based decision support systems for diabetes management. Their product, Advisor Pro, provides healthcare providers with actionable insights based on continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) and other patient data.

Advisor Pro uses machine learning algorithms to analyze glucose levels, insulin doses, and other relevant data to recommend optimal insulin therapy adjustments. By automating complex data analysis, DreaMed Diabetes enables more precise and individualized treatment plans. This is particularly beneficial for patients with type 1 diabetes, who require constant and careful management of their insulin therapy.

Virta Health

Virta Health focuses on reversing type 2 diabetes through a combination of personalized nutrition and remote monitoring. The company’s approach is centered around a carbohydrate-restricted diet and continuous health coaching, supported by AI-driven insights.

This real-time analysis helps patients maintain dietary discipline and achieve better glucose control. Virta’s approach has shown promising results, with many patients significantly reducing their need for medication or even achieving remission. By leveraging AI, Virta Health provides a sustainable and scalable solution for diabetes management that goes beyond traditional treatment methods.

AEYE Health

AEYE Health is an innovative startup specializing in diagnosing a broad range of diseases from retinal images using AI. It secured its first FDA clearances for autonomously diagnosing diabetic retinopathy, a common complication of diabetes that can lead to blindness if untreated. The company’s AI provides a diagnosis on-the-spot and without the need for a specialist to confirm the diagnosis. 

Traditional methods require specialist screenings, which are inaccessible, time-consuming, and expensive. Consequently, less than 50% of patients adhere to prescribed screening regimen. AEYE Health’s AI solution enables screening patients at their primary care provider instead of referring them to specialists. And for those patients that can’t get around, the AI can screen them at home. As a result, annual screenings are made more accessible and affordable for patients, and in turn help ensure better patient outcomes.


Glooko offers a comprehensive diabetes management platform that integrates data from various devices, including glucose meters, insulin pumps, and CGMs. Their platform uses AI to provide actionable insights and personalized recommendations.

Glooko’s platform simplifies diabetes management by consolidating data from different sources and using AI to identify patterns and trends. This helps patients and healthcare providers make more informed decisions about treatment and lifestyle adjustments. The platform’s user-friendly interface and real-time data analytics make it easier for patients to stay on top of their diabetes management, leading to better glucose control and reduced risk of complications. Glooko also supports remote monitoring, allowing healthcare providers to track patient progress and intervene when necessary.


The integration of AI into diabetes care is not just a technological advancement but a transformative approach that holds the promise of better outcomes, more personalized care, and improved quality of life for millions of people living with diabetes. 

From early diagnosis of debilitating complications like diabetic retinopathy to personalized treatment plans and advanced insulin management systems, these companies are leveraging AI to tackle the complexities of diabetes care. Their contributions are making diabetes management more efficient, accessible, and effective and as these technologies continue to evolve, we can expect even greater advancements and improvements in diabetes care.
