Maintaining glucose concentration in normoglycemic range in Type I diabetic patients is challenging. In this study H` control is applied for insulin delivery to prevent hyperglycemic levels in a type I diabetic patient. From a ­control theory point of view, the blood glucose regulation problem is reformulated as a tracking one. A glucose ­tolerance curve (GTC) validated from several patients is used as a reference model. Intra-and inter-patient variability ­poses a ­challenging task to control blood glucose concentration in diabetic patients. A data based robust controller is ­developed to control blood glucose concentration in type I diabetic patients in the presence of meal disturbances under patient-model mismatch. Simulation studies are performed on the diabetic patient model under feedback ­control which revealed that the proposed control strategy is able to control blood glucose concentration well within the acceptable limits and also compensate for slow parametric drifts.
