  • Publication number: 20230040677
    Abstract: An alternate mode for addressing meals in closed loop insulin delivery systems is disclosed. An Eating Soon Mode may be a user-selectable feature that can be activated when a user anticipates eating a meal in the near future. Once activated, Eating Soon Mode preemptively modifies the closed loop algorithm in preparation for the expected rise in glucose levels from consumption of the meal. This can result in a greater amount of time in range for the user, a lower coefficient of variation of the user's glucose levels and/or a lower maximum BG level for the user. According to embodiments disclosed herein, activation of Eating Soon Mode modifies the algorithm to deliver a correction bolus to lower the user's glucose level and to provide a modified, lower target range at which to maintain the user's glucose levels in anticipation of the glucose rise that will result from the meal.
