1. A method comprising:

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

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

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

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

    determining, by the data processing hardware, an adjustment factor based on the received blood glucose measurement;

    adjusting, by the data processing hardware, the previous Carbohydrate-to-Insulin Ratio for the immediately previous meal consumed by the patient by dividing the previous Carbohydrate-to-Insulin Ratio by the adjustment factor;

    determining, by the data processing hardware, a recommended meal bolus for the determined blood glucose type based on the adjusted previous Carbohydrate-to-Insulin Ratio; and

    transmitting the recommended meal bolus to an administration device in communication with the data processing hardware, the administration device comprising;

    a doser; and

    an administration computing device in communication with the doser, the administration computing device configured to cause the doser to administer a number of units of insulin to the patient using the recommended meal bolus.
