A system and method for predicting the effect of patient self-care actions on a disease control parameter. A future disease control parameter value X(t

j

) at time t

j

is determined from a prior disease control parameter value X(t

i

) at time t

i

based on an optimal control parameter value R(t

j

) at time t

j

, the difference between the prior disease control parameter value X(t

i

) and an optimal control parameter value R(t

i

) at time t

i

, and a set of differentials between patient self-care parameters having patient self-care values S

M

(t

i

) at time t

i

and optimal self-care parameters having optimal self-care values O

M

(t

i

) at time t

i

. The differentials are multiplied by corresponding scaling factors K

M

. The system includes an input device for entering the patient self-care values S

M

(t

i

). A memory stores the optimal control parameter values R(t

i

) and R(t

j

), the prior disease control parameter value X(t

i

), the optimal self-care values O

M

(t

i

), and the scaling factors K

M

. A processor in communication with the input device and memory calculates the future disease control parameter value X(t

j

). A display is connected to the processor to display the future disease control parameter value X(t

j

) to a patient.
