Insulin dose simulations

David Kinshuck

 

These simulations are teaching tools and are not accurate. For instance, obviously a severe hypo will not lead to an instant recovery as it does in these simulations. Thanks to the 'Flash' community for lots of online help. Simulations written by David Kinshuck

Brief explanation of models

Simple model 

Exercise

 

Exercise, snacks, and boluses model

 

Adjusting for different patients  

 

Working out energy expenditure as well 

 

Insulin pump

Insulin pump 2

Insulin pump 3

  1. Start
  2. dial in your own normal basal rate
  3. (top set of blue buttons) on a day you were well controlled
  4. then put in your basal rates, add your food, add exercise, and readjust your basal and bolus rates.
  5. see pump paragraphs above
  6. there are several 'example patients' at the bottom.

 

How do they work
