Rudimentary Model of Glucose Response to Stress

by Nasha Rios-Guzman


Submitted : Fall 2016

Many mathematical models for diabetes exist, though this author is not aware of mathematical models specifically delineating the mechanism for stress hormones to increase plasma blood glucose. A simplistic multifactorial model was crafted to represent change in plasma glucose concentrations after increases in stress hormones above baseline. A sample application of the predictive use of this model was demonstrated, and a reflection on possible models in diabetic populations was described.
