Hello Paola,

here is an example:
http://www.boomer.org/c/p3/c02/c0210.html

refer to the formula AUC(1-n)

*** Since you need only the area under the curve, but above 180, transform your data first:
replace c=(c-180)*(c>180)
*** c is your concentration variable
*** Since t(n)-t(n-1) is always 5 minutes, so you can simplify the calculations.
gen y=c
replace y=c[_n]+y[_n-1] if _n>1
di y[_N]/2*5

This will yield mg.min/L. If you want mg.hr/L, replace 5 in the last expression with 5/60, etc

Regards, Sergiy

Dear all,
Does anybody know how to calculate the Area Under Curve?
I have two variables: time from 00.00 a.m. to 23.55 p.m. and glicemic
values from 40 mg to 350 mg (every 5 minutes).
I would like to estimate tha area above a limit of 180 mg.
Any suggestion is welcome!
Paola
