We propose a system for teleconsultation in Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (IDDM) management, accessible through the use of the net. The system is able to collect monitoring data, to analyze them through a set of fools, and to suggest a therapy adjustment in order to tackle the identified metabolic problems and to fit the patient's needs. The therapy revision has been implemented through the Episodic Skeletal Planning Methodi, it generates an advice and employs it to modify the current therapeutic protocol, presenting to the physician a set of feasible solutions, among which she can choose the new one.
