Diabetes is a common disease, and one in which the patient has to undergo many lifestyle changes. In this paper we propose a model in which fuzzy logic can be used to determine the amount of insulin to be dosed to a diabetic, without the person having to calculate the same every half hour. Such systems have already been proposed, and we have worked based on already existing papers. This system uses the fuzzy type of reasoning, which closely resembles what a human being would do. The system involves feedback, and uses continuous blood glucose monitoring and an insulin pump, making it an artificial pancreas. Our aim is to propose a system that is easy to handle by any diabetic of any age, and does not hamper their daily life.
