The problem of regulating glucose in diabetic patients is challenging and important control problems in the field of biomedical systems. In most of the developing nations the treatment of diabetes follows open-loop control strategies or at least improved by feedforward actions and fingerstick measures. In recent years due to the availability of CGM (Continuous Glucose Measurements) it is possible to realize fully automated closed-loop control strategies at least in principle. As a matter of fact, the ensemble of a CGM device, a control algorithm and an insulin pump constitutes a so-called Artificial Pancreas (AP). The development of the artificial pancreas greatly needs the knowledge of patient glucose-insulin regulatory dynamical model, control strategies, insulin pump and CGM (sensor) and last but not least the interpretation of the glucose and insulin profile after computer simulation. Realistic computer simulation is capable of providing information about the safety and the limitations of closed-loop control algorithms, act
as a guide to clinical studies and research. Thus computer simulation testing of closed-loop control algorithms is regarded as a prerequisite to clinical trials of the artificial pancreas. In context to Indian scenario such software (for artificial pancreas) in not available till date utilizing the diabetes patient data of our country. In this talk mathematical model of diabetic patient, few control strategies and finally their integration for development of artificial pancreas will be discussed.
