Type 1 diabetic model (A)
Diabetes mellitus is a chronic metabolic disease characterized by the uncoupling of bloodglucose levels and insulin secretion, causing abnormal glycemic excursions. Type 1diabetes is characterized by a complete insulin deficiency. Treatment consists ofattempting to match exogenous insulin delivery to the metabolic needs of the patientduring meals, exercise, and sleep. The objective is to minimize the frequency and severityof glycemic excursions and, more importantly, avoid hypoglycemic episodes.
