Poster #106

Type 2 Diabetes is a disease that affects millions of Americans every year. While many treatments for this disease exist, there lacks an algorithm to streamline these treatments in the most effective manner. The goal of this project is to take advantage of the developed Cobelli model to create "human" patients and experiment with altering the parameters of this model to create a physiologically realistic and reliable treatment algorithm. This preliminary analysis will be used to determine which parameters are most useful, and to create a cost function that will respond in a time sensitive manner to the patient's actions.
