Personalized prediction of diabetic foot ulcer recurrence in elderly individuals using machine learning paradigms.

BACKGROUND: This study utilizes machine learning to analyze the recurrence risk of diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) in elderly diabetic patients, aiming to enhance prevention and intervention efforts.

OBJECTIVE: The goal is to construct accurate predictive models for assessing the recurrence risk of DFUs based on high-risk factors, such as age, blood sugar control, alcohol consumption, and smoking, in elderly diabetic patients.

METHODS: Data from 138 elderly diabetic patients were collected, and after data cleaning, outlier screening, and feature integration, machine learning models were constructed. Support Vector Machine (SVM) was employed, achieving an accuracy rate of 93%.

RESULTS: Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of SVM in predicting the recurrence risk of DFUs in elderly diabetic patients, providing clinicians with a more accurate tool for assessment.

CONCLUSIONS: The study highlights the significance of machine learning in managing foot ulcers in elderly diabetic patients, particularly in predicting recurrence risk. This approach facilitates timely intervention, reducing the likelihood of patient recurrence, and introduces computer-assisted medical strategies in elderly diabetes management.
