Self-aware Patient Agent Model
The CPA incorporates the influential parameters in diabetes management and it can represent typical diabetic patients. However, human behaviour is far more complicated than the proposed model. For instance, people may frequently sample their BG and respond to knowledge of their own condition, which is called SMBG and self-management. To incorporate such issues, the SPA is constructed as an enhancement of the CPA. This model also incorporates risk factors of age and health status.
