The BG/I ratio is the blood sugar point drop for each unit of insulin administered to bring down a high blood sugar reading. An accurate measure of Blood Sugar to Insulin ratio ( BG/I ) is necessary to maintain good overall control of blood sugar levels. An estimate of BG/I can be made using the 1500 rule or the 1800 rule (in the section on Treat Highs Differently) if you use Humalog. For some people, these estimates may result in large errors.
This straight-forward procedure provides an easy and accurate check of Blood Sugar to Insulin ratio ( BG/I ).
