Non-linear dynamic analysis of glucose regulation in subjects with type 2 diabetes and controls: observed variability and lability (OVAL)

Hill Nathan , Hindmarsh Peter , Tsapas Apostolos , Matthews David

Introduction: Glucose homeostasis is central to the understanding of diabetes and is influenced by hormones and by substrate flux. This implies a non-linear system which has been confirmed by time series analysis. A dynamic systems approach is required for describing the inter-relationship of glucose and insulin and we describe a method that measures a mathematical domain of glucose homeostasis termed the observed variability and lability (OVAL).Methods:...
