1. An integrated glucose management system for tuning patient-specific insulin data, comprising:

  • a memory configured to record and store glucose measurement data representing measurements of physiological glucose levels, and to store exogenous data in a form of attributes tagged to the stored glucose measurement data;

    a user interface comprising a visual display and an input device configured to receive and communicate user input data and instructions; and

    a processor comprising computer-executable instructions to;

    record multiple series of glucose measurement data into the memory during defined time periods;

    tag each of the recorded series of glucose measurement data with exogenous attributes including a profile name, wherein the name of the profile is selected to identify the data recording as belonging to a particular category of patient conditions;

    access the memory to retrieve a plurality of profiles having a same profile name;

    compare the retrieved plurality of profiles to detect a persistent pattern of undesirable measured glucose levels existing in the plurality of profiles;

    provide an alarm at the user interface if the persistent pattern is detected in the retrieved plurality of profiles; and

    provide a recommended change to patient-specific insulin data as a result of the detected persistent pattern, and display the recommended change on the user interface;

    wherein the computer-executable instructions include an excess insulin manager configured to provide a plurality of alternative recommended changes to the patient-specific insulin data; and

    furtherwherein the excess insulin manager is further configured to prioritize a recommended increase in carbohydrate intake lower than recommended changes to insulin delivery.
