To whom it may concern:
I am an undergraduate electrical engineering student modeling your artificial pancreas models for educational purposes and I discovered errors on page 3527, where the final two values of P bar are incorrect. I noticed that all of data except for the last two values in P bar, which came from the mean values of the respective variables in Partitioning glucose distribution/transport, disposal, and endogenous production during IVGTT, were the natural logarithm of the mean value.
I believe that the final two values should be ln(9.7), which is 2.72, for F_01, and EGP_0 - F_01, should be ln(6.4), which is 1.856. If you could please correct this error, it would be appreciated.
n=1is a political tactic to avoid hitting "did you illegally distribute a medical device?" trigger
My interest is less the online part but the offline, not that they negate each other, determination of them and the trending. One chart I make is an aggregate basal test day by excluding periods with the influence of bolus, carb, exercise, temp basal and then charting the rate of change. Night times are easy to get too.
So I think this is what Medtronic has done with their reporting. The CDE's get suggestions from the software but the clients do not because they are licensed and using their judgement
Not all diabetics have CGM's or pumps as a start, most do not. That limits the ability to monitor and control. Also, from my conversations with my CDE it is the norm for patients to wait for their appointments and not make changes themselves outside of something like sick day management which has to be spelled out.
So with that, I think it would be hard to say why one is spiking after a meal.
