Diabetes, also known as Diabetes Mellitus is a disease that happens to a person when one’s blood glucose or blood sugar is extremely high. Insulin is a hormone secreted by the organ pancreas and helps to convert the blood glucose into useful energy for the body. In some cases, the body doesn’t produce enough, or any amount of insulin or doesn’t use the produced insulin properly. Hence the Glucose remains in the blood and doesn’t reach the body cells. Thus, having a lot of glucose in your blood can causes health problems, which is what exactly happens in Diabetes. Long- term complications of Diabetes develop gradually. Having Diabetes for a long time along with uncontrolled blood sugar levels can cause dangerous complications. In the due course, diabetes complications may be disabling or even life- threatening. Making things even worse, there is no cure for this disease yet! Even though there’s no cure for diabetes, it can be treated and controlled, and some people may go into a state of remission. But the very first step towards controlling and minimizing the ill effects of Diabetes is – the early detection of the disease! Thus, we need comfortable, reliable, and quick methods of detection. Hence, we are proposing an efficient, reliable, comfortable, and time-saving Diabetes detection system for Diabetes detection using diabetic Retinopathy and Implementation of Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN). The level of Diabetic retinopathy present will also give a direct indication about the level of Diabetes. The implementation of this method of Diabetes detection will increase accuracy, efficiency, and ease of Diabetes detection, and further the prognosis and treatment. Also, it will prove to be a better alternative to conventional testing for the disease
