As I well know. In the last twenty or so years using the behaviour
modelling techniques developed from research into complex
electromechanical control systems to the modelling of biological and
biochemical control systems has been a very active interdisciplinary
area. It's what I specialised in.
It's especially useful in modelling hormone control systems. It so
happens that the chemical law of mass action provides a good analogy
to the Newtonian world of masses springs and dampers. So mechanical PD
control theory applies straightforwardly to the control of
biochemicals in solution and explains some of what was previously
regarded as their odd behaviour.
You're saying the endocrine systems are predictable at least
to Newtonian modeling. My experiences have taught me that for
me they are chaotic and with a variably over driven component.
Mine was but it's become a LOT more predictable. I guess I must be
doing something right, I no longer do the overshoots in either
direction with my BG so like Chris I can afford to test less NOW. The
only reason I can do that is because I tested a lot initially until I
had the parameters worked out.
I had a Testing Day today. FBG 94, post breakfast 115, post dinner 97,
post evening meal 110
That was a relatively inactive day.
I'll have another Testing Day again soon when I'll whack into the
garden and go for a long walk, I'll probably add some inter-meal tests
to make sure I'm still not hitting lows but I doubt the numbers will
be significantly different.
When I DO still test is when I'm eating out or otherwise doing things
outside of my normal flight envelope, like being ill - I can still get
a bit unstable then. It took a while to get here, my doctor is still
unhappy with the methods I use but she can't argue with the results.
Well except for the 175 I hit a bit before Christmas when I ate a
Healthy Meal <G>
