[IP] Insulin to Carb ratios
We're still adjusting Stephanie's rates (basals
seem to be pretty well settled, now we're working on insulin to carbs), and I'm
curious about something. I had figured at about 1 unit to 15 g carbo as a
starting place based on her earlier experiences. After 8 days of pumping
(yee-hah!) it's starting to look like it might be more like 1 unit to 10 g
carbo. I'm surprised, because I thought since she was fairly small (65 lb.
skinny-minny) the ratio would be larger. Is insulin to carb ratio directly tied
to weight, or is it more complicated, as in metabolism rates play a part, etc.?
Any help would be appreciated...even suggestions of books to read where I could
learn more. Thanks!
