Abstract: This work displays a numerical model of glucose metabolism including the digestion of carbohydrate as a factor affecting blood glucose concentration for type 1 diabetic patient. It includes a comparative study of glucose metabolism for different types of food: Black Beans, Whole Wheat Bread, Brown Rice, Lentils and Oatmeal. The model involves the differential equations for change in concentration of glucose, insulin and epinephrine in which factors for physical activities and carbohydrates affecting glucose concentration are also included. Graphs are drawn using the solution of the differential equations. This work represents glucose level picked up by various food items for both exercising and non-exercising person. It is concluded that there is a great impact of physical activities and eating habits in regulation of plasma glucose concentration for a type 1 diabetic patient.
