1. A method comprising:

  • receiving, at data processing hardware, a glucose measurement of a patient;

    determining, by the data processing hardware, a glucose type of the received glucose measurement;

    when the determined glucose type comprises one of a pre-lunch glucose measurement or a pre-dinner glucose measurement;

    obtaining, by the data processing hardware, a previous Carbohydrate-to-Insulin Ratio (CIR) for an immediately previous meal consumed by the patient, the immediately previous meal consumed by the patient comprising one of breakfast when the determined glucose type comprises the pre-lunch glucose measurement or lunch when the determined glucose type comprises the pre-dinner glucose type;

    adjusting, by the data processing hardware, the previous CIR for the immediately previous meal consumed by the patient based on the received glucose measurement; and

    determining, by the data processing hardware, a recommended meal bolus for the determined glucose type based on the adjusted previous CIR, the recommended meal bolus corresponding to an insulin dose of rapid-acting insulin to be administered to the patient at the time of day associated with the determined glucose type to bring and maintain the patient'"'"'s glucose level into a target range; and

    transmitting, from the data processing hardware, to a patient device remotely located from the data processing hardware and in communication with the data processing hardware via a network, the recommended meal bolus at the time of day associated with the determined glucose type, the recommended meal bolus when received by the patient device causing the patient device to display a number of units of insulin for the patient to administer using the recommended meal bolus.
