A new model to estimate Bolus Insulin Need

Patients with type 1 diabetes usually use the carbohydrate (CHO) counting method to establish their bolus insulin need. However, most still struggle with blood glucose control. We believe that for good control their insulin requirements should strive to mimic the insulin secretion of those without diabetes. The objective here is to develop, from first principles, a better model than the CHO counting model for calculating the bolus insulin need of subjects without diabetes. Such a model may also provide better blood glucose control for patients with type 1 diabetes. This will be investigated in a future article.
