I plan to use the aida diabetes software simulator to help give me an idea about how and when my insulin is working in relation to food eaten, and exercise undertaken. I have used it before and it is a great help to me. Of course I do not go by the simulation alone in relation to insulin dosages, but like I said it helps me to understand certain qualities of different insulins in different situations.

This is actually for my wife who has been a diabetic since she was 12 years old. Her specialist told her that she obtained a glucometer in the States that downloads her sugar readings on a computer and the computer automatically projects a graph based on the old sliding scale. I would love to get her something like that but even if it were available here in South Africa, we probably wouldn't be able to afford it. So I would like to see what this programme can do, because if it can help my wife, she will tell her specialist and we could help a lot more people here in South Africa with it.

Basically I am a B.Pharm. graduate running a WHO GMP standardised factory near Chennai. I have excellent rapport with medical profession in South India, where as most of the interiors/towns of South India lack internet facilities, therefore I am planning interactive website for doctors and so that they can educate the patients through your AIDA software. In fact we are rice-eating population and the incidence of diabetes is more in South India. Because of lack of facilities in towns, where few computer, browsing centres are just coming-up, I thought if you can support me by your esteemed software I can make doctors to use the simulation for patients benefits, it is not only a service but 2000 strong elite doctors are becoming subscribed members in this proposed site, here-in some doctors participate in equities. I just want to initiate the use of your software by so many medical practitioners who are unaware in the interior towns of South India. I will be grateful if you can give options for customizing according to the patients condition/case profile. Though you are promoting for patients, but in the present circumstances I will ask the doctors to do this for the patients which then will catch like a fire. Anyhow thanks for the useful software. Because of this most of the doctors/members will visit your site would give way for furthering our ties for useful services.

From Yugoslavia - Friday, January 11, 2002 at 22:22:38 (GMT)
I am a patient who was extremely active all of his life. I competed nationally and internationally in wrestling and other combative arts (kickboxing only locally). The physical stress is tremendous and took some dietary planning even prior to my diagnosis with diabetes. At 25 years of age I was diagnosed with Diabetes type 1 Mellitus. I am pretty disciplined and test myself regularly and never miss my injections. I take 3 Humalog injections per day and 1 Humulin at night. I base my injections on what I eat (and that may change day to day). I am now 26 and 1/2, (I've had diabetes for a little over a year), and its out of control. At dinner time, based on carbohydrate counting I took ten units of insulin, and it took my reading from 12 mmol/l [216 mg/dl] at dinner time to 14 mmol/l [252 mg/dl] at supper time. For supper, based on carbohydrate counting again, I took a little more to supplement the fact that I was 'twice' over normal level, and 5 hours later, I felt pleasant and great but my readings were off the scale. I was above 33.3 mmol/l [599 mg/dl]. I did quality assurance tests on my glucometer, and re-tested myself, but everything pointed to me being extremely high. I now don't train as much or as heavy because I have taken extreme lows while exercising heavy. I am new to this and I hope AIDA can help me with the following: 1.) Help me take better control of my glucose readings. 2.) provide information to predict based on carbohydrate counting, and history of current readings, approximations of how much Humalog to take. 3.) How much Humulin (nightime slow acting) to take (bolus rate stuff). 4.) How to predict changes when I exercise. 5.) How I could change my diet to reach normal weight levels again (i've lost over 10lbs, and 26 at 120lbs is bothersome). BASICALLY 6.) Give me some of my freedom back through control. I feel like diabetes is holding me hostage to everything I've ever done.

So losing weight, reducing sugar, eating right, taking medication - even with advice from a doctor specializing in diabetes, and a skinny dietician who basically says "don't eat", I want a better handle on myself as I go through the highs and lows, ups and downs... "a level playing field?"

Hi again! It's been a long time since I was in touch with you but am VERY impressed with the recent developments. The online version is excellent and saves a lot of time when travelling (as basically you don't have to wait till home to try a solution) as well as being well laid out & easy to use. I know we are not supposed to use this for personal regimen planning but for my friend it has stopped bulimia and anorexia and returned her to me from her "brittle" status two years ago. I really feel that it gave her her only hope through blindness and has allowed her much better recovery than she could ever have had. It also has allowed me to help specialists and nurses and GPs here from mistreating her (I don't mean shouting or bullying !) I cannot thank you enough.
