Abstract: Diabetes is one of the leading chronic diseases affecting the lives of millions globally and early detection and treatment of this disease can serve to improve the quality of life for patients as well as suspend further health complications arising from diabetes. Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGM) and Insulin Pumps (IP) have been widely deployed to monitor the sugar levels in the blood stream and inject appropriate amounts of insulin to compensate for the underperforming pancreas functions of the patients’ bodies and thereby may provide appropriate treatment solutions for many diabetic sufferers. With the invention and deployment of Smartphones, the quality and performance associated with treating diabetes has reached new heights, however the privacy and security of mobile-based diabetic systems remain in ongoing challenges. This chapter aims to focus on the privacy and security challenges of Mobile-Health (mHealth)-based Diabetic solutions.
