Re: [IP] Does this make sense?

Bolus doses are calculated on the amount of carbs in the meal. Basal doses 
are calculated on total daily insulin divided into 1500 for Regular and 1800 
for Humalog. An estimated bolus can be calculated on TDD divided into 450 for 
Regular and 500 for Humalog. They are all estimates on starting points when 
you go on the pump. Adjustments are made on basal and bolus testing. Basal 
tests first.
