  • Publication number: 20240009392
    Abstract: Exemplary embodiments may determine anticipated basal insulin delivery action to a user from an insulin delivery device over a future time window. Indications of the anticipated basal insulin delivery action over the future time window may be output to the user. The exemplary embodiments may determine the anticipated basal insulin delivery action over the future time window based on a rate of change (ROC) of glucose level of the user by the insulin delivery device, a most recent (“current”) glucose level for the user and insulin on board (IOB) for the user. The exemplary embodiments may also determine whether the user is likely to experience a undesired high glucose level (e.g., hyperglycemia) and/or an undesired low glucose level (e.g., hypoglycemia) during the future time window. The exemplary embodiments may output recommendations based on the projected glucose levels of the user over the future time window.

  • Publication number: 20230233762
    Abstract: Exemplary embodiments may provide a user interface and logic for assisting a user in calculating a proper medicament bolus dosage. The user interface may be simple and easy to understand. The user interface may clearly specify needed inputs, such as a carbohydrates amount for a meal that is about to be ingested and the current glucose level reading for the user. Entered inputs may be displayed on the user interface. The user interface may depict key calculated values resulting from calculations that involve the inputs, including the total bolus dosage calculation. The user interface also may depict the values that contribute to the total bolus dosage calculation. Some of the input values, such as carbohydrates amount, may be prepopulated by the management device or medicament delivery device. The user interface may permit overriding of prepopulated input values.
