Overview

My life with Type 1 Diabetes is filled with medical devices, mental calculations, and estimations.

Eat a sandwich = cover with insulin. Going on a hike later = eat a snack + reduce insulin. These decisions fill my days.

This project is an ongoing series of experiments, sketches, and visualizations that attempt to provide context to the health data I have available.

The Experiments

I've built this project for the express purpose of quick experimentation.

By keeping my efforts focused, I'm able to work quickly and try new designs without risk of disrupting a larger project momentum.

I've built somewhere close to 20 experiments in total- the ones featured on this site are the most polished.
