Diabetes: A Personal Process Control Perspective

September 13, 2016 @ 10:00 pm - September 14, 2016 @ 12:30 am

According to the CDC more than 29 million US adults have diabetes, and 25% of them don’t know it.  The health and economic costs are enormous.  Diabetes was the seventh leading cause of death in the United States in 2013.  It is the leading cause of kidney failure, lower-limb amputations, and adult-onset blindness.  More than 20% of health care spending is for people with diagnosed diabetes.

There is no cure for diabetes.  Disease management is the only current option.  This talk will explore type 1 diabetes management from a process control professional’s perspective.   There will be a little history and a little process control theory, modeling, and simulation.  There are no prerequisites required; a brief introduction to the necessary technologies will be covered.  The talk will conclude with a look at some promising new treatment developments.
