Mathematics of Glucose Control

Part of the Lecture Notes in Control and Information Sciences book series (LNCIS, volume 368)


We have looked at blood glucose measurement, insulin infusion (Chapter 2), and the characteristics of the patient in terms of the blood glucose control (Chapter 3). In this chapter, we look at the control algorithms (or the “smarts”) that, when worked together with the glucose sensor and insulin infusion pump, would ideally re-balance a patient’s blood glucose level.
