DailyDose is a decision support system developed at Oregon Health & Science University designed for people with T1D on MDI to improve glycemic control. It connects with Dexcom G6 and Medtronic's InPen. DailyDose runs on a smartphone and calculates insulin doses using CGM value and trend, IOB, carbohydrate amount, and exercise information. The system analyzes CGM and insulin data and automatically provides weekly recommendations on insulin settings, such as basal insulin dose and carbohydrate ratios, based on a k-nearest neighbors algorithm. Twenty-four adults with T1D used DailyDose for 8 weeks. The primary outcome was change in % time in range (TIR, 70-180 mg/dL) on CGM comparing the two week run-in period before starting DailyDose vs. final two weeks of DailyDose use. A mixed effects model was used to determine the impact of the % of accepted recommendations on change in % TIR. Users who accepted and followed recommendations showed a mean week-to-week improvement in TIR of 2.0% (Figure) . The mixed effects model shows week-by-week TIR increased by 7.8% when recommendations were accepted compared with not accepted (CI, 3-12%, P=.001) . Overall, there were no significant differences between TIR or time in hypoglycemia comparing the run-in period and the final two weeks of use. Further work is needed to encourage people using decision support systems to follow recommendations.
