Why people download AIDA

(Re)-Load AIDA Frames / Menus
Since February 2001 we have been asking Website visitors, while they were downloading the AIDA software, if they could anonymously give some indication as to how they saw themselves maybe making use of the program. Intentionally this question was only asked of those people who had already answered the 6 questions on the first AIDA download Web page - as it was felt that if people were not able to answer relatively simple pull-down menu item questions, they were less likely to type in such meaningful free text comments.

Therefore the responses obtained are from a slightly self-selected group of AIDA downloaders. Nevertheless we have found it useful to read comments from people about how they see themselves maybe making use of the AIDA software - and interesting to understand more about why people are turning to the Internet, and downloading the AIDA program.

The comments are reproduced below, in the hope that they may be informative to a wider audience.

How do you see yourself maybe making use of the AIDA software?

I am intrested in the effects that using newer longer-acting insulins (e.g. "Lantus") would have on my glucose profile. The insulin I myself am using today gives unsatisfactory results (because of the Somogyi Effect) and I would like to test in theory whether the "Lantus" type of insulin might improve the situation. So my problem may be stated as "Is it worth a try?"

I have only been on insulin for about 6 weeks. Prior to that time, I was on oral antidiabetics for over ten years. On orals, my blood glucose (BG) readings were fairly stable, but high (around 180). During the time I have been on insulin, my BG levels have swung wildly each day from over 300 to under 40. I have tried all sorts of sources around town, including the local diabetes education center and my own physician, to get more information on how insulin works, how to select the proper type of insulin and how to manage the dosage of insulin. In addition, I have done extensive searches on the Internet for this type of information. The results of my local search was that the diabetes education center refused to discuss the subject of insulin with me and would only allow me to take their course, which dealt with insulin for a total of less than 30 seconds out of 10 hours, and my physician doesn't seem to be knowledgable about the newer forms of insulin available. The Internet was by far the best source. My physician does seem to listen well to my suggestions and allows me to try them, within the bounds of safety (i.e., he modifies my suggestions to make them safer). I expect to use AIDA to do comparative simulations of dosage, schedules and combinations of different types of insulin to achieve the response curve that I am looking for. I will then show the results to my physician to see whether we can come up with something else to try. I should point out that I am a former military physicians' assistant, so I have a clinical background. In addition, I have a Master's degree in Computer Science and make my living writing advanced distributed simulation software, so I am aware of the uses and limitations of simulations.

From a student
From Hungary - Thursday, May 31, 2001 at 13:45:00 (GMT)
I have to try it before I can tell what I plan to do. I was using a glucose monitor on line that helped me to keep track of my daily readings at work and at home. I was able to print and submit these readings to my physician. I was on oral medications and I am now on insulin and have only been on it for about a month and as yet they have not been able to adjust the correct dosage but as I'm sure you are aware that takes time. I am obese and also have asthma and small cell non-hodgins lymphoma. I went to a nutrionist who set up a diet that I follow but I'm not really losing weight on it but one thing I don't do and that is exercise enough. My job requires me to do computer work pretty much of my 7 hours a day. I get involved and forget to get up and walk around. I hope this program will help me to learn about balancing insulin and diet in diabetes.

Given the context of strict medical supervision, I believe the hypothetical scenarios may be useful in stimulating future targets. While individual circumstances cannot be covered by the AIDA program, the same would be true of any specialist opinion (simply by virtue of lack of information). Given that careful iteration under controlled circumstances is the foundation of individual treatment, the AIDA simulation can usefully spawn possibilities.

My wife aged 60 (IDDM since 18) has already benefited by nutritional changes which have reduced daily insulin from 120 units per day to 12 to 15 units per day without loss of energy (quite the contrary), eliminated the savage hyperglycaemic attacks of "standard assessment" (which would have left her right where she was) and put a profound and measurable brake on retinopathy. This was not so much due to any application of AIDA but a process of gradually nudging things along iteratively. The change from hundreds to tens of units per day was pointed out to clinical supervisors hoping it might be checked for any useful implications for other patients. The total response was "Oooh yes. That's strange!" Long live any tool which stimulates thoughts of possible scenarios as distinct from brain dead procedural thinking!

I have IDDM. I was diagnosed 23 years ago. I presently calculate my insulin requirements using insulin algorithms. I take insulin 4/5 times per day. I also calculate what I expect my dawn phenomena to be and take NPH insulin at 1:00 am to cover it. I also have a diabetes program that approximates HbA1c levels. It provides 90 day averages on a daily basis so I can tell if one of my test times are moving in the wrong direction. I have recently added 3 postprandial BG levels to the program. I take 8 regular tests per day. I am interested in anything that can help me to improve my BG control.

Being an active type 1, I am always looking for the easiest ways to keep my glucose stable, with as little interuption as possible in my daily life. Because it is not routine, I have a hard time keeping it where I want it. That said, I do maintain good control. I am just looking for ways to have more control over my life itself. I have come up with many new ideas and formulas for calculating insulin injections / timing, but I am hoping I can come up with them more easily using your software. It has been given much approval by other people. I did download it before the latest version came out, and with my limited computer skills, hope to use it more this time. Thank-you.

look at my insulin ratio to see if taking less might work for me if I increase my exercise or reduce my carbs. I haven't used the software so don't really know what I'll do, but I know it will tell me how the insulin might work with my BG profile.

I will be using the case studies as sample data in the training of a neural network / genetic algorithm artificial intelligence program to try to predict the necessary insulin for a given patient with diabetes who has a given blood sugar. It's all theoretical right now, and I may not even be able to use the case study information, but I'm looking for data with times, blood sugars and insulin given to use as training data for my program. The program that I will create will be freeware, and if you like, when complete, I will forward a copy to you.
