The diabetes mellititus (type 1) condition occur when the beta cell destroy partially due to autoimmune process. The beta cells produce insulin with respect to blood glucose level. The insulin hormone regulates blood glucose in body. The blood glucose increases in body when insulin secretion is low from pancreas, termed as Diabetes mellititus. The Diabetes mellititus causes infection, pain in mouth. The regions in mouth affected by diabetes mellititius include gums, teeth, jaw and tongue. The glucose level increases in saliva which grows harmful bacteria. The bacteria in combination with plaque cause bad breath, gum disease and coating on tongue. The coating and sugar level in tongue alters the temperature of tongue. In this paper we propose to analyze tongue thermal image to diagnose diabetes at early stage.
