[IP] how much of a bg rise

the correct ratio of bolus to grams carb will return the bg to within 30 
points of the original bg 5 hours after eating.. that was the rule of thumb 
when regular insulin was used.. with humalog, you can anticipate  the return 
in about 3 hours.. that is why i encourage our clients to wait 3 hours after 
a bolus correction before correcting again... correcting too often can cause 
an overlap of insulin action and this can cause a bg drop.. especially if 
this coincides with a programmed increase in basal rate..
