Re: [IP] Glucose Tabs

Hello Lisa D.
Good general rules of thumb:
5 Gms glucose raises blood glucose 20 units (mg%)',
1 Unit insulin is used per 10 - 12 Gms CHO,
Unused Insulin: Velosilin = 16 - 20% is used per hour
                         Humalog 25% per hour
1 unit of insulin drops blood sugar 30 - 40 units (mg%)
Using these rules and seeing Spencer's response will let you adjust
good Luck.
