Abstract [en]

Often diabetic patients have developed their skills by some trial-and-error-like training over a long period of time. To minimize this inconvenience we have made a mathematical model to facilitate diabetes education. The model consists of a number of blocks involved in diabetes physiology: digestion, blood (transport), pancreas, injected insulin absorption, liver, muscles, kidneys, metabolism and insulin sensitivity. The model serves as a demonstration object and the user can change meals, exercise and injections and see the resulting blood glucose level. A more experienced user can search for further explanations of different phenomena deeper in the physiology of the model. The model does not solve any problem for the user, but creates a learning situation in which the user, led by his own curiosity, successively increases his experience of diabetes physiology. Särimner is implemented as an easy-to-use menu driven computer program for IBM PC-clones with Hercules, EGA or VGA graphics.
