Here is the tricky part, people absolutely hate diabetes. Many people that live with the disease don't like it at all, so why would anyone be interested in this "game". Like any game you would be given points, in this game your points would be your blood sugar average otherwise known as your A1C. Each day in the game could be completed in as little as three minutes.
How would this game help people that live with diabetes? Being so active I routinely have low blood sugars, my calorie intake in the summer is as much as 4,000 calories a day, with almost a quarter of those calories coming from juice or soda to fix or prevent a low blood sugar. I would pay a large sum of money if I could have this technology available. I would love to be able to plug in that I'm going for a three hour bike ride and switching around my temp basal rates to see where my blood sugar would be. I would also love to use the program to see how a bowl of pasta would affect my blood sugar, I could put in how much pasta I'm eating and then see when my blood sugar would rise. I could then tweak my insulin dosage and see what that would do to my blood sugar. Obviously this "game" would be a lot more appealing to those that have diabetes. Someone one without diabetes however may be able to find alternate ways to deal with certain foods and how the insulin is delivered, for example covering a slice of pizza with a square wave bolus.
Now the disappointing news, this "game" is right now a dream and only in my mind and now on the blog. My hope is to try and present this blog to people a lot smarter than I in hopes that they could find the proper equations to make the blood sugar projections possible. Like everything in my life I will give it a shot and see what happens, my hope is to have an update on this "game" in six months. I encourage everyone to share this blog in hopes that it will find someone who can help make my dream a reality.
